Charming

September 26, 2014 | By | No Comments

Charm City was eh charming… the course was challenging, with flyovers, 4 sand pits and bottleneck corners instantly after the hole shot and it was hot, oh so very hot. The words on everyone’s chapped lips and dusty mouths was that it was harder than Nittany.. which was unforseen. Ryan brought home our best result in 12th on the Sunday race and we had the pleasure of hanging with Master of the High Seas, Team Yacht Club’s Cassidy. Next up Gloucester.

USA Pro Challenge Stage 4

September 24, 2014 | By | No Comments

Recently I found myself in Denver through work. As fortune had it this coincided with the USA Pro Challenge that was making it’s way through Colorado.
A couple of emails later the good people at Rapah Condor JLT had invited me to come hang out on what would be one of their last tours as a team and i was set to collect good friend Andy Bokanev whom I’d met on the #seekanddiverge adventure from the airport so we could head down to Colorado Springs for Stage 4.

I’m in no way a photographer and Andy’s coverage is infinitely better; see here. but above and below are my captures from an awesome day out.

This year we’re fortunate/unfortunate to be racing together in the 3′s. Thanks to Bryan for grabbing some captures to prove we (or at least Chris) were there.

Box Hill KOM Challenge by Daniel Slotte

August 28, 2014 | By | 2 Comments

I’ve never done a Strava challenge before. This is mainly because most Strava challenges seem to involve indiscriminately racking up a large number of kilometres (or metres of vertical ascent), an old fashioned quantity-over-quality approach to training which I’ve never subscribed to. I love Strava for the segments though, so when I saw a Box Hill KOM Challenge announced I knew this could be something for me. The challenge was simple – fastest time up the famous Zig Zag Road over a two week period wins. Making this more interesting was the fact that Box Hill would feature as the final categorised climb of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic (1.HC) road race, ensuring a number of pros would also be logging times going up.

My previous fastest time (5:44)… (Click more to read on) Read More

Ride London-Surrey 100 2014 by Daniel Slotte

August 13, 2014 | By | 2 Comments

Last Sunday was the 2nd edition of the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 event. Despite the complicated name this event is growing in size and stature, and is now the UK’s biggest sportive with 24,000 participants. It follows roughly the same route as the 2012 Olympic road race, starting in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London and then venturing south west into the Surrey hills, before returning to London for a sprint finish on The Mall, all over closed roads. The distance is 100 miles / 161km as the name implies, although it turned out not to be the case this year – more on that in a moment.
