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.
