Cycle-Smart International Race Report: Day 2

csiday2

After a successful first day at Cycle-Smart International, Day 2 came with a cringed awakening at the wind rattling the black windows long before the morning had approached. My roomy for the weekend, Chris Burati, looked about as excited as someone who had just need kicked in the balls as we went for breakfast. I didn’t feel much better. Coffee-ing our ... Read More »

The recent weekend saw Roger and I plus a jolly band of other New York CXers head up to Northampton in Mass for the 24th annual Cycle-Smart International Cyclocross race.

With work obligations and crashes reducing my fitness to a nearly non-existent level, on the bike expectations were low as I flew ... Read More »

Tour de Millersburg Race Report

millersburg2014

Tour de Millersburg is one of our favorite races on the East Coast. As Photo Rhetoric documented, the race easily makes up for what it may lack in scale with absolutely unparalleled community support. It also doesn’t hurt that last year the team scored a GC podium with Ashley Doane’s strong performance across all three stages. Either way, this past weekend saw ... Read More »
