Seeing Stars…

26 09 2008

Whew! Let me just begin by saying that Star-Crossed is one of the most unique Cyclocross races in the world, and I feel really lucky to have it in my backyard.The Velodrome by you.

Let it be known that the RCR crew went out there and TORE IT UP against MASSIVE fields of well above 70 riders in some catagories. Not only did the Cross Crew throw down on the slimey tracks winding around the velodrome, but we officially were the loudest cheering, hardest heckling fans out there (well, the 2 shirtless Canadians may have had us beat…).                                                       


Here are some pics of the evening’s Shenanigans…100_1591 by you.100_1609 by you.100_1620 by you.100_1638 by you.100_1654 by you.I'm wet and unhappy by you.Tent by you.

Oh yeah Boys and girls! Cyclocross is upon us, and the Crew Clad in Gold and Blue are out in force and tearing up the course!

Here are some pics of the first 2 races of the season. First up, The Labor Day Championships put on by the Oberto Development Squad.

I have no problem saying that we THREW DOWN at this one, and came away with Big, Bad “HOT” CARL HULIT taking the win in the CAT 3 race!!!!

 Next up are some great shots of us putting the hurt on the competition (and ourselves!) at the second annual Copper Cross, put on by our friends over at AVA Counterbalance Racing. We ended up everywhere, with Top 5 Placings by Tim Ellis (Masters 1-2’s) and Kevin Speltz (CAT 4), and Top Ten Placings by Dustin Lennon (CAT 4) and David Burke (CAT 1/2).


The Season has just begun! Next up, STAR-CROSSED and STEILACOOM!!!!

Just another Saturday team ride

15 09 2008

During the 2008 Giro di Lago, the peloton was well-behaved until the initial foothills. While not really attacking the field, Mr. July set a blistering pace up the feared Cima Norway and rode Messrs. June and January off his wheel to summit alone, clinching the stage win. Mr. July proceeded to follow the wheels of the opportunists during subsequent stages, taking further time from the enemy on climbs and nimbly following the fast wheels in the sprints. When the cleats were finally hung up, Mr. July retained the coveted leader’s blue jersey, with Mr. June securing the sprint title. Also of note, Mr. Yaegerschnitzel earned the distinction of the only rider during this year’s Giro to maim a rat.
