The road season has come to a close. Our team had a fantastic season. We achieved some great results. We accomplished our goal for the season, which was, “Have fun riding bikes while promoting our sponsors, partnerships, and the sport of cycling.”

Sponsors

First off, I would like to thank our generous sponsors. The season would not have been the same without their support. Thank you sponsors!

Riders

I would like to thank all of our riders who put in the miles and effort to make this season a success. We had some fantastic results this year, and we had a good mix of riders. We welcomed some new comers to the mix who were a great addition. We had some guys take on challenges like ironman as well as some who raced out of state. Chris Parsons won the 45+ New Mexico Regional Criterium Championships.

Bannock Street Criterium

Our team helped race director Deidre Moynihan with the Bannock Street Criterium. The criterium was a success this year and our riders volunteered their time to help with course marshalling, set up, medals, and clean up. The course went the opposite direction from past years.  It was an honor to be a part of this event. We hope to continue to work with Deirdre in the future on events.

Riders

I would like to thank all of our riders who put in the miles and effort to make this season a success. We had some fantastic results this year, and we had a good mix of riders. We had state champion caliber riders through riders who pinned on a number for the first time. We had some young guns on the team and had a man who turns 60 this year. It was great to have everybody on the team and we appreciate your support. Without you guys we couldn’t do it.

Classics season at last!

Tempo Cyclist has made the Spring a little easier. Check out their post with the Spring Classics Schedule. We are looking forward to some epic racing this year. Here in Colorado the snow continues to fall, but spring will be here before we know it.

Now that all the boring desert racing is out of the way the Classics can begin. I don’t care if the great Eddy Merckx co-owns the Tour of Oman, it’s still a rubbish place for a bike  race! There’s been a bit of a lull in any decent road racing since the Tour Down Under in January, but not any more. There’s a packed racing calendar all through March and April.

Of course most will be looking forward to the bigger Spring Classics such as Milan San Remo (which Merckx won seven times!) and Paris-Roubaix, for Bradley Wiggins’ final race in Team Sky colours. I love these one-day races; full of cobbles, climbs and exciting clashes. So now begins two very busy months of racing for World Tour teams!
