Red Kite Omnium race #1 – The Bump

posted in: Race report, Road Race | 1

Suffering. It’s waking up at 5am. It’s deciding to put your kit on as the rain starts. It’s not putting your bike back in the car after 20mph winds and rain in warmup. It’s lining up behind the moto ref and neutral starts that aren’t all that neutral.
“Why is it so hard?” The same thought [...]

Another great day for racing. Used the new ride (VAN) to it’s full extent, we packed in 7 people and 7 bikes (6 racers). I raced Cat 5 35+ with Robert and Nathan we all worked together in this race to give a safe wheel and good draft space. We had expectations of getting to the sprint [...]

Perfect weather day and lots of teamies for this TTE. Damon and I raced CAT 5 35+ we were able to assist in bringing in a break away after playing with our food as Larry would say. Damon pushed the paced multiple times which gave me an opening to get a podium finish. Great day and [...]

Knights Ferry M45-4 (Feb 2, 2013)

I can tell that I’m getting old by the starting time of my race.  The Cat 4 old guys (M45) race didn’t start till 12:15.  It was so nice not having to leave the house early in the morning, or having to wait around the starting line freezing cold at the crack of dawn.  The [...]

San Bruno Mtn Hill Climb

I’m really excited to start racing in 2013 and i love climbing so this was a great way to get going. No better way to ring in the new year then to race up a mountain. The course is about 3.7 miles and about 1100ft up. The first half is about 7-8% up Guadalupe Parkway [...]
