Grants Tomb: Race Report

March 10, 2014 | By | No Comments

Grant’s Tomb came upon most of us like the jolt of a bear being awoken from hibernation. Being one of the few all out crits we get to race here in New York and being considered the ‘official’ start to the season by many we had heaped a lot of pressure on ourselves heightened by the newness of the team and a nagging self doubt that maybe the nasty winter had been too easy an excuse.

Paris- Nice by James Hyatt

March 10, 2014 | By | One Comment

James has penchant for pro cycling like none other in our ranks. He conjures a romanticism and sense of passion in even the most un- savvy of us (me). As such James will be introducing and reporting on pro-cycling races here! Enjoy…

And so we have it, the ‘traditionalist’s’ start of the 2014 Road season in Europe, with Paris-Nice kicking off today from Mantes-la-Jolie. With the World Tour now in its 5th year, it’s hard to believe anyone outside small French villages and under the age of 50 still holds this view. However, as with all things in cycling, tradition is there to be respected and so I for one welcome with bated breath this iconic weeklong stage race.

The London Bike Show Crit Race

February 18, 2014 | By | One Comment

The London team raced Cat4 and Cat3 at The London Bike Show this weekend. It was a hard course (a hot dog crit) with 2 straights and 2 very sliperry hairpins. It was like a very hard interval training, sprint for 30 seconds, coast around the corner, sprint again, coast around the corner, repeat over and over again. Well done to Rudy and Leo for their effort on the Cat3 race and Matt, George and Pasquale on the Cat4 race achieving a great result with George coming 1st after breaking away with Twickenham CC’s Tim O’Rourke. Stay tuned for photos.

Get Stoked For Battenkill

November 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

This is the first year I’ve raced non-stop through winter due to taking on Cyclocross, the first ‘big race’ to hit the road race calendar in 2014 is Battenkill with the sign up attracting the kind of fever that One Direction Concert tickets bring teenage girls. At a time I was lamenting having to shift from discipline to the next with consistent race pressures this has got me stoked to get back on the road bike.

Austin IS weird… & very awesome.

November 6, 2013 | By | No Comments

I’ve been in Austin for the past week and will be for the following 2. Team Yacht Club have taken me under their wing as one of their own and I’m having a blast in this town. On Saturday I met up with the guys at Mellow Johnny’s and rolled out to Walnut Creek trails. At some points it felt like an initiation with flash floods making some of the sections trickier than anticipated and making the portage across the river interesting.

Myself and Tyler rolled out early on Sunday to BCRCX in Houston. The weather has been incredible here compared to the east coast and it was no hardship for me to watch the rest of the fields race with the 4/5 being the last to go; I’m used to being the first! The course and orginisation for the day was incredible, with a really well balanced course, great structure to the day and awesome prizes. Eager to exorcise some demons from my first 9 or 10 races and spurred on by being the out-of-towner I managed to bag my first win of the season and was more than stoked.

Looking forward to riding more of Austin and gettin RAD in Georgetown this weekend.

On Sunday a few of us went to Alexandra Palace for Rapha Supercross 2013 and we were there in force, not to race, but to spectate. Maybe next year a few of #5thLDN boys will be there getting muddy. Our man Erik Jonsson took some killer photos, make sure you head to Build Ride Rinse to check out the first set of photos.
