Update on your LAF wristband order

VeloBella@...
 

Did you hear......??
 
The record was broken!!  Everyone that stepped up to the Oprah challenge last week and bought their yellow Livestrong wristbands helped raise $900,000 in one day, topping the $365,000 old record. 
 
WAY TO GO!!  Much needed support for the foundation and the cancer community.
 
Thank you!

sounds like a good idea :)  plus I think planning the whole summer in Feb is asking a lot

Race Schedule

VeloBella@...
 

Hey, let's not forget about some fun, non-racing events, that would also be great training, like the Horrible Hilly Hundred in June.  I, and at least a couple others that I know of, plan on doing this ride.  Check it out.......

Thanks great help.  Perhaps everyone can take a gander at it and circle the events they are planning on attending.  Then you could drop it off when you execute the clothing order!

Hey All,

I have attached a partial schedule of races I am considering, maybe someone else can put it to use. The schedule is only through the end of May as many of the events after that have not been posted yet.  I saved the file in Htm and Excel format, let me know if you can't open it i can send it in any format you want.

Good evening.

 

In an effort to put together a ride schedule, we decided that we should first target which races we plan on focusing on.  After plugging through a series of websites, it would be great to get some feedback on what are the priorities for you in terms of races….

 

1.      Location / time needed to get there and back

2.      Type of race (do you want to focus on TT’s, Crits or road races)

3.      Competition level (do you want national and regional championships or easier focus)

4.      Other

 

The good news is that we have lots to choose from with a race within 1.5 hours virtually every weekend.  The bad news (because I hate them) is that they are mostly TT’s.  Let me know your thoughts on this.

 

Richard

Speaking of non-racing events, remember there is the MS 150 at the end of June.  There's a 100 mile option on day 1 and the 75 mile return trip on day 2.  And it's for a great cause!

Dear Members....



Thanks for coming by yesterday to place the 2005 BBC team clothing order.
Getting together was fun, now the work begins.



If you did not order long sleeve garments, you can move on to your next E
Mail.



For those of you who ordered Long Sleeve Jerseys, Long Sleeve Wind Jackets,
and Long Sleeve Thermal Jackets. WE DID NOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO MEETING THE
MINIMUMS AND CAN NOT ORDER THESE PRODUCTS. You must instruct me in the next
48 hours on what you would like to have happen to your order. You have two
choices.

1. Delete the item entirely. I will then cut you a check back for the
refunded products.
2. Convert the item in to a short sleeve or sleeveless garment. For
example, a long sleeve jersey becomes a short sleeve one. A thermal jacket
becomes a thermal vest. Let me know be Wednesday.



Note that if I do not hear from you by close of business on Wednesday I will
have to cancel the garment to make sure we complete our order on time.
Happy cycling...



Richard

Cycling Race on Internet

Tom & Paula Kramer
 

Hi Gang.
 
The attached link is for cycling.tv website.  It broadcasts pro bike races over the internet.  They showed Sunday's Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne live, which George Hincape won.  You can watch a replay of the race for free!  They showed Het Volk on Saturday, although that cost 10 Euros to purchase.  They also have stages of the Jacobs Creek Tour Down Under and the Tour of Qatar.  Their plan is to show many of the pro races this year, most of them for free.  They don't have Phil and Paul announcing, but the person they do have is an affable English chap.  The streaming video picture is very good quality if you have a high-speed internet connection.
 
All you have to do is register with them-- it's free.  There are two commercials when you log-in and the race is commercial free!
 
Enjoy.
 
Tom 

First Race of the Year.

BikingDiva@...
 

It was so nice to see so many team mates at the race on sunday!
 
WHAT A GORGEOUS DAY for the RACE!!!!    The temperature was perfect, the sun was out and a huge turnout for the Parkside Practice Crit.
I hope you all got out to ride if you couldn't make the ABD event.   :)  For those of you who couldnt make it ,  here is a brief synopsis of the day.  ((dont worry.  I am not doing this for other races. just this once....)) 


 All of the races had very large peletons .  Tom's Kid  MIKEY did us proud with his first ever bike race win of 6th place.   Way to ride!!!!

The woman's event was next and it had a larger peleton than I was expecting,  maybe 25? girls or so.   Mostly these Triple XXX girls.  Wow they just dominated our field . They just TOOK off at a blistering pace just brutal....eh...  Then they just dropped out after 30 minutes.   hmmmm.
Well  by the end of our race we had whittled the girls down to just a handful. there was only one XXX girl left. Rita. I think.  someone kept yelling "perfect..Rita..watch your small chain ring"   so that was fun to tease her about. 
I was just happy to place and got third over all and second in my age group. whew!  that was tough!  
dont you just love that head wind at Parkside???

The 50+  race ended in a hammering sprint. There was QUITE a large peleton that had stayed  together. ...... and it was every man for himself....very exciting.   It ended in a  vociferous finish with a rather tall man in a deep red jersey bellowing ~ howling in glory as he pounded his way first over the finish line barely a wheel agead of the rest. VERY exciting.   Was that Ken I saw???   Not sure.
 
 Then came THE EVENT of the day for BBC !!!!!!
The 40+  had a wonderful turn out for BBC!!!!   Tom, Hank, Kevin, Jim Inman and John G.  were all there.  Some of them did 30+ too which was immediately after.  The 30 + race was very fast but not as aggressive at the end as the 40+.
  Hank took 6th in 40 plus and somewhere around the top 10 in thirty plus.
 
Kevin in his debut Crit did a great performance and pulled the entire peleton of 40+ up to a break away single handedly.   WHAT A SIGHT!!! into a fierce Headwind!  I swear in the beginning of the race he was in the very back seeming to just be hanging on..then two laps later he was UP IN FRONT PULLING the entire peleton to bridge the gap that these other riders had made!!!!!!!!  GO KEVIN!!!!
 I was screaming!!! 
The break away didnt have a chance!     It was so exciting to see that. :)  
Tom and John, also their first crit races,  were in there too and looking very strong!!!!  Jim that wasnt your first race was it?  Great race!!   ......It was VERY exciting to watch this race with so many team mates to cheer for!
 
Hank was shot into an excellent position to sprint out.  No break aways thanks to Kevin and it came down to the sprint finish for the entire peleton!
 ...the lines were jumping all over the place it was frightening to watch the finish of the 40 plus....  None of the other races were so scary.
 It was down to the wire and the front runners all came across at the same time.  Confusing to say the least.  There was a great deal of jostling at the sprint.   Hank stayed his line the best he could.  He was excellently positioned behind the man that eventually won but a 2CC rider cut across the entire peleton and knocked right into Hank, destroying his momentum and costing him the race.  ((oh yeah he was a bit P-O' d. ))
It took the judges over two hours to determine whos' wheel was who's.  Karl, the judge that looks like Gene Hackman,  he said he couldn't figure out how the 2CC guy came from far right field with only ten yards to go and  suddenly being in the FRONT of the final photo ( far left)  which only proves that this man really did a lame move.  
Well.  NO crashes and no one got injured.  that is the best news.

triple XXX team had the largest numbers in the 30+ mens and the woman's field.  Theypretty much did the same thing in the 30+ men's.  They went out hard and fast then just died off half way into the race.  I saw many of them fall off and not finish.  
I think you guys did REALLy well in your first race.  The 30 plus looked fast but it finished much nicer than the 40+ . 

FUn day and a good turn out.   Not bad for the first race of the season. 
 
YAY BBC!!!!!

June

Nice job reporting June!  I almost felt as if I was there.  Unfortunately I was indoors on the bike.

Parkside #2

FYI

June won the overall womens race at Parkside Sunday

Re: [teambbike] Parkside #2

Carol Curtis
 

I can't believe that you guys raced in that weather, but big congrats June Bug!!!

Re: [teambbike] Parkside #2

BikingDiva@...
 

It was friggin'  cold. 

There were surprisingly a lot of women there. 

   I did the men's 40+ an hour later and that was actually a lot easier because I could stay in the pack and keep warm.   none of the guys wanted to go hard so they all stayed together and everyone kept warm.  and get this..........

I almost ''won'' the men's 40+  !!    ;)   HAHA!!!

  On the last lap they were not really taking me seriously and I went off the front just to get out of the way.  ((up that little hill))  When I got to the top of the hill and passed the second turn,  I noticed I was alone and looked back........ they were all going totally slow!!!!  you know??   I was like....No way!     I just .......laughed my ass off  and  rode on all by myself.    But dang I kept expecting them to come barrelling past me.
It was nerve wracking. 

  I actually got  almost about 150 yards to the finish line before they all WOooooooooooooooooooooooooSHED past me.
Hank said if I had 30 more seconds I maybe could have won the durn thing.  NO WAY!!!!!

  THAT would have been hilarious!!!!!!!
Hank Got 5th in the 40 Plus.    yay!!!!
