There is More Than Just Road Racing…

29 05 2008

Are we a “One-Trick Pony”? Heck No!!! Recycled Cycles Racing is tearing it up in every venue that will have us!

Mr. BeersThe Velodrome at Marymoor has been a great place for us as a team. The skills learned on the track help all our racers move in the pack and be aggressive in their races. Every Wednesday and Friday Night you can come out and cheer for the kids in Blue and Gold!!!

Mr. Flynn

This season has already seen RCR take the Overall Preseason for the Cat 4, as well as 3rd for the Cat 3. Things are certainly looking good as we go into Track season!

While not a primary focus for most ofthe team, Mtn biking is another place where RCR can shine. Our most recent foray was over Memorial Day with the Round and Round 24 Hour Race in Spokane, WA. 

We fielded 3 teams and came away with a solid Top 5 in the 2-man Open (Craig Moe and Mike Brown), and a 4th place finish for our 4-man team.

 (Jason Edens, Tim Erikson, Randy Salamon, Alex Wilson.)We even had some foolish kid doing solo… Way to go Guys!!!

Next week is Enumclaw!!!


Whoa! where did the time go?

Yeah, yeah. It has been a couple weeks since my last post, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a whole lot of exciting racing going on!

First the good news. We have had a lot of animated racing so far this season. Recently at the Vance Creek Road Race, we had our very own “Master of Mud” Alex Wilson coming out and showing us that his “cross” power transfers VERY well to the pavement with a 7th Place in the Cat 3’s.

 Way to go Alex!!!

It also looks like the “Calf That Won’t Quit” Jeff Nettles was making his presence felt at the Wenachee Crit with a solid Top 5 finish!

It’s not just the Road where RCR is shining. Out at the Group Health Velodrome at Marymoor, the preseason Track Racing has begun, and we are out in force!                                                                                           

 Matt Beers is leading the pack in the Mens Cat 4 Omnium and Randy Salamon is sitting Third in the Cat 3 Omnium. Both Guys solidified their placings with Beers winning the Scatch race on friday, and Randy Winning the Snowball.

Way to go Guys!!!

Now for the bad news. At the Senior Road Race Championships, the Cat 3 men’s field had a pretty big crash, and 3 of our boys went down. Two guys are now out for the rest of the season with broken bits.

Carl, Nick, get better soon!!!!!
