HPCX by Angelo

October 20, 2014 | By | No Comments

Angelo joined us this weekend as we headed out to HPCX. Conditions were absolutely perfect by the time the 2/3/4 race swung around; high 60’s, slightly breezy, tacky course. I had little expectations for myself on anther UCI weekend with a combined field in a course renowned for climbing. After the first pre-ride I was confident I could turn that on its head, with wide flowing lines and rooty wooded descent sections and rideable stairs I was sure the balance swung to features that favored me.

The short course meant 7 laps which is a mental battle, however my endeavor to work through this season with the goal of better grid placement next year kept the motivation high even when my 38-32 made me lazy on the uphill and active recovery dwindled. I finished 29th and ahead of my marker men and winning a line sprint- I was stoked. Ryan was further up the road in 14th on his continued show of form, Pino flatted out but made up for it with a hometown third in West Chester on the Sunday.

Marty Cross is next for us.
Thanks to Angelo for the images.

Whirlybird CX by Eloy Anzola

October 13, 2014 | By | No Comments

This weekend was a tale of two halfs, Saturday was Whirlybird CX where we got the ‘real cyclocross’ weather we’ve all been chanting about for the past 5 or 6 weeks. It took its toll on body and bike and by the time we got to Cooper River on Sunday only myself and Johnny we’re able to race our bikes with Ryan joining on a loaner from All-City who were in attendance. Much fun was had and Eloy Anzola captured the drama nicely on Saturday.

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.

Quick Pics: Granogue CX

September 16, 2014 | By | No Comments

The past weekend marks the second in our North East CX campaign. Last year there was a breadth of coverage due to a spread of us across the categories. 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.

Easter Sunday in the dirt.

April 28, 2014 | By | No Comments

We we’re introduced to Rocky Point in LI just before last cross season and its acres of accessible trails and CX friendliness has haunted us since. Well it opened up just before Easter and we headed out there to ride as fast as possible for as long as possible like a bunch of excited 8 year olds let loose in Toys R Us – which was frankly the point. Phil and Chris somehow managed to get a few captures of the day.

Thule getting us to the races

November 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

One of the draw backs of cross racing is that it requires a vehicle to get you there. This can prove prohibitive and selective in who actually makes it to races. The NYC community tends to rally round and lifts and car pooling is pretty effective.

Thule have been in awesome in outfitting 5th NYC with their rack systems ensuring we can get the full team with 5 bikes to the races. The rack system is super secure during transit and when were in parc ferme with its locking system. We’re using the 526 circuit model, specs here.

Thanks to Angelo for the photos and Chris for ferrying us around the east coast this season.
