Monday Racing Update.
First off I know we've been gone for a while, but we are now back and will use this blog until we get the journal page up on the new website.
Congratulations to all Veloforma Sponsored riders that raced this weekend’s venues, Drew Willis, Alice Pennington, Joel Crouch, Mark Crawford, Elise ”Super Mom” Huggins, Megan “Cinzano” Chinberg and Stephanie “meatball” Chase. I know there was probably more out at the races so I am sorry if I did see your results… I won't be out racing for a few more weeks.
It was typical pacific northwestern Belgian style weather. Notables of the weekend, Alice Pennington decided to race with the Pro 1,2 men and finish a respectable 17th in the bunch, thus scoring Oregon cup points with the men, nice job AP. If she raced the women’s race I would have picked Alice for the solo win. But I know she needs the mileage and intensity for Redlands.
In the masters 40 plus race Mark Crawford of Ironclad Performance Wear - won the fields sprint for 2nd, nice job Crawford! Veloforma is a proud sponsor of this team for 4 years and counting. Gonna be cool to see the Ironclad ladies line up later in the year on all the same bikes as Ironclad has stepped up big time, more on that later…
Upper Echelon Fitness Women’s Cycling team fielded a small but strong squad of 3 for the first of the Oregon cup series. Elise Huggins aka super mom finished the highest for the team in 4th. Huggins, Chase and Chinberg aka cinzano put in a valiant effort in some really nasty weather. Speaking of valiant efforts Cinzano did some major hard racing and lots of seat time in the car this past weekend. On Saturday she raced Echo Red to Red in Echo, Oregon where she finished 4th then high tailed it to BB #2 for Oregon Cup #1.
