Velocious Sport Jr/u23

Updates,

We did a few more cyclocross races this month in Downtown Winston Salem at the WSCX/NCC course. Niko has two wins out there, Will grabbed a 2nd this past week, and LittleBro Matthew also picked up an early 2019 podium spot!

Road racing season kicks to life this Saturday at Ace Speedway and we have one more downtown cyclocross race left on Sunday. The juniors and u23 riders are busy training for the Tour of the Southern Highlands Stage Race in Woodstock, GA, March 1-3. This a huge event for the juniors as it is a National Team selection race for the 17-18 year olds!

The BMX team has booked plane tickets to the USABMX Spring National in Albuquerque, NM, March 15-17! 20 year old team manager Kit Bjerk will be aging up to the 21-25 category just before the race while High Point University professor and new Tanglewood BMX Track Operator Braden Romer will race the Vet Pro category.

We picked up a new super talented u23 racer, 2018 Junior 17-18 National Time Trial Championship silver medalist Rebecca Kefer is joining the squad! Rebecca is going all in for road racing this coming spring and summer and we expect she’ll get huge results.

The team presentation location and time will be announced soon. We are working on the details but the date is now set for February 16.

Velocious Sport Jr/u23

The 2018 race season is finally behind us and we are happy to say it was a success! We’ve been racing non stop since early January. Now, it’s time for a few weeks off before we get back in the saddle at the Triad CX Series Winter Bowl in Winston Salem and the USABMX Bluegrass Nationals in Louisville next month!

We ended the season with some great results. 13 year old Wesley Haggstrom won the cat 3 men’s overall in the NC Cyclocross Series. Jacob Bernas won the NCCX overall title in the 17-18 junior category with Niko Salazar Garcia in 3rd and Matthew Salazar Garcia in 4th, Will Zylstra finished 4th in 13-14’s, and, Mario Quivera was 2nd in the 9-12’s. Way to go fellas!

To top off a great season Wes went to the USACycling cyclocross nationals and finished 2nd in the 13-14 race! Super muddy and technical riding mastered by a masterful bike handler, masterfully.

Thanks to all of our partners for a great season! Hope to see you all at the team presentation in February. We have a few more fun surprises before then, though, so keep an eye out for another email in a few weeks!

Bull City GP

Race report! The junior team raced the Bull City GP, at not Durham (?) but Ace Speedway on Sunday. Niko, Elizabeth, and Matthew Salazar Garcia joined Finn Hosey and Jacob Bernas for more laps of the now quite familiar speedway. The team did exceptionally well, taking the top three spots!

Niko and Jacob doubled up and raced the 4/5’s as well to get in some more fast training. It’s not easy riding in the senior category but that’s the point, they ride over their head a little and learn how to race with a larger faster group.

U23 rider Marcel Gutierrez teamed up with Senior rider Zach Hostetler for the 1/2 race and the pair made the big break of the day only to get caught shortly before the finish. Still, a good effort and great training.

Ace Race #2

February 5

The Velocious Sport Jr Team (Crumley Roberts, Attorneys At Law, @usnccws, Kensbikeshop) had a great day of racing Saturday, Niko Salazar Garcia won the Ace Speedway Criterium Series in the Juniors category! He was first on the day to secure the series omnium title after winning both events. Jacob Bernas was 3rd on the day and 3rd overall in the junior omnium.

Despite the freezing temps the guys doubled up and raced with the senior 4/5’s where u23 rider Peter Wallace led out the sprint and hung on for 4th, while Niko was 5th. It’s been a good start to the road season! Big thanks to Triangle Velo for the racing.

Learning how to cope with cold weather is not easy but thanks to some warm Rouler Sportswear fleece jerseys and leg warmers, everyone was well prepared.

First Road Race of 2018!

The first Road Race of the year is complete!
The junior team raced at Ace Speedway this morning with all but a sick Wes Haggstrom lining up.

Niko grabbed the win and Jacob took 3rd!

Everyone had a great time and were all smiles afterwards.

The guys doubled up and raced the 4/5 race as well and had the opportunity to race with u23 teammate Ben Hostetler and the other big kids. It was a good experience and great training. Huge thanks to Triangle Velo for letting all the junior racers do the 4/5 at no extra cost!!!

Shaping up!

The pieces are all coming together for this year! Half of the Rouler team clothes made it to the US, the rest should be here next week.
Rouler sent a cool 3d mock up of the skinsuit:

And, the helmets arrived today!

The juniors finished up the NCCX Series this past weekend and hit Zwift for some racing on Tuesday. Road season is just a few weeks away after all. Everyone on the team is excited to get back to the Dixie Classic Criterium Tuesday nights in March!

Juniors Racing on Zwift

It was new bike day last night at the Junior Studio ride! We have four of the five bikes built up and three lucky kids got to ride theirs at the biweekly training race last night.
The kids had a fantastic race on Zwift with a huge group of very fast adults, including former NRC Stage Race winner of Healthnet and Jelly Belly, Mike Jones. Wes Haggstrom finished 6th overall, in the group just 25 seconds behind SoPro Jones! That’s why he wears the National Champ skinsuit… the kid is fast, really fast.

Thanks entirely to our partners, we are giving these young men and women a huge opportunity to experience an amazing sport!
