Well I can't tell you how much respect I have for these ladies, the team we helped out this week was awesome and they ranged in age from 15 to 40 with all of them really do well despite having a rough week of bad luck which included crashes, flats and colds! but they all did great and I walk away with way more respect than I think most people who have never been to a road race before. in fact I am inspired to try some road races myself, after all I have been racing mountain bikes for 18 years! Also I have been racing DH for most of that time and after watching the crit on Friday I would prefer DH racing to that. They go so fast into the turns it's scary and at least in DH if you crash it's most likely your own fault but in Crits you can get taken out and be 20 people behind the person who crashed! but I must say they look fun!
OK sorry for no updates lately but I have been a busy boy! Secondly I know what you are thinking Road Racing on this blog!! WTF is going on. well I was in Bend last week for the Cascade Classic since one of the lines I rep was sponsoring a pro women's team. So I was there to sell Pro-lite wheels and help out with anything that I could. Well I ended up being the mechanic for the ladies, so I was fixing the bikes at night and making sure they were in good order. That was the fun part for sure and the topper was riding in the team car on Saturday and helping with the feeds and keeping track of positioning of the riders. So I took a boat load of pics and have put them up here. enjoy
