Valentines Day

Posted on: February 14, 2011 I Written By

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Hope everyone’s cycling season is starting off well. Mine has.

Our team had a great first 2 week. First, we went to the Poor College Kids road race in Santa Barbara and we were able to finish in the lead group but, there was no room to sprint so I settled for 26th.

The next weekend was the Boulevard/ Red Trolley weekend. I got into a break for the first 30 minutes of Boulevard and our team leader, Nathan Chaszeyka took top honors, winning the Red Trolley Criterium.

Make sure you do something for your special someone today and have a good day.
