Angus Sung: Rapha Condor JLT: End of an Era

November 4, 2014 | By | No Comments

Six days before the start of the Tour of Britain 2014, I had all the logistics finialised for two stages of the ToB that I wanted to cover and had been looking forward to them for quite some time, and then the phone rang… Five days later, after some emailing with Tom Southam (team press officer and former rider), I found myself catching a morning train northbound to Liverpool where I was to meet up with the team, Rapha Condor JLT.

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.

The Cycle Show 2014 : Angus Sung

October 1, 2014 | By | No Comments

Once again September has come around and brings along with it the annual Cycles Show at the NEC, Birmingham. This year the Cycle Show expanded into a third exhibition hall making this the biggest show since it’s return to the venue and as you’d expect it was packed to the rafters with bike porn and bling, plus a good supply of varies energy bar samples to keep you on your feet, bonus.

From what I experienced during my week with Rapha Condor JLT at the Tour Of Britain (exclusive full story coming soon), its easy to see that cycling in the UK has had another successful year with audience numbers increasing yet again and that was certainly reflected by the huge crowds that attended the Cycle Show.

Rapha Supercross Weekend: Gloucester, MA by Andy Bokanev Part 1

September 30, 2014 | By | One Comment

We were over the moon to be joined by Andy Bokanev for Rapha Supercross in Gloucester. This is the first half of the ‘Holy Week’ of Cross here on the East Coast and it was exceptional in every way apart from the continued heat and dust bowl of the season so far.

Despite the race being such a highlight of the season it’s almost overshadowed by the fun times in MA that accompany it having Andy there this year really added to it. Read last years account from our cat 4/5 perspective here.Part 2 of black and whites to follow tomorrow.

The 5th Floor in The Catskills.

September 30, 2014 | By | One Comment

Despite riding thousands of miles a year as a team, days like Saturday still remain few and far between. The 101 miles Donalrey had envisaged for us soon became when 112 when we decided (like it was ever up for debate…) that we WOULD do the extra climb mid-way through up Sugarloaf. Endless sunshine, roads and dare i say it, pain made up what has to be my favorite day of riding this year. Click Read More for the full article.

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.
