Aqua Bike World Championships 2021

The travel was interesting because one week before I left the Netherlands changed their policy on allowing Americans into their country…but I (and the other athletes) got an exemption from the Dutch Olympic committee to enter without quarantine. We needed vaccination and recent negative test (we also needed a negative test to return, and it’s free in Holland and ez to schedule).

Suisun Harbor Criterium 2021

I went into this race feeling very well prepared. I got a good warmup, and had a good night of sleep before race day. We were rolling off the start line before I knew it! An early break went up the road a little bit after the first prime lap.

Patterson Road Race 2021

The cat3/4 race Lodi Cyclefest 2021 was a great experience! Besides a few TNTs it was my first crit and I will be honest and say I didn’t think that I’d like it…But, I had a ton of fun! I sat in in the back; there were about 10 of us, combined cat3, cat4 (me), and novice.

Boba’s Team Time Trial 2021

This was a new course that the Boba’s concocted. Actually, a good one that has no stop signs and only one right turn. (Only if their directions to the start area were as good as the course!) We found the staging area at Springhill Road just off Bodega. Critical feedback aside, we always appreciate the efforts of our local rival club to put on their underground time trials and road race…

Missoula Pro UCI Race 2021

Montana was sick! The short track was a super short loop that started on a gravel strip then went up to the top of a dual slalom track and then circle back around through a nice, wooded section. I started near the back of the group since it was my first UCI level race, but right off the start I shot into the middle of the pack. The laps were fast and hard, there was nowhere to rest on the course, my legs were frying. I got pulled after about 11 minutes finishing somewhere around 40th.

Copperopolis Road Race 2021

Ok, this one was a bad idea. I love the race but with now only 5 days of riding outside, heading to the gnarliest race course in NorCal, with a descent each lap that you have to bomb despite being bumped all over the place with your bike sounding like it’s falling apart beneath you, well, glad I did it but my body still aches days later…

Folsom Classic Criterium

With fitness from racing with the Red Peloton team on Zwift, but only 1 day of riding in the real world since November 2020, I decided to give a local criterium a go. This field is full of current and former national and world champions, former pros, and top notch amateurs so it’s always a good measure…

Rockville CX Race #8

Rockville CX Race #8 Back (2/16/20) After years of trying, it finally happened. So many races, so many mishaps and incidents, so many times near the front. Rockville was dry.  It has not rained there in weeks. I have not raced there in two weeks. After my last mud filled debacle, I decided to switch to …
