We’ve had little break in racing with the juniors being on spring break and going on vacation. But here are the highlights this week:
The kid’s race at Dixie is steadily growing each week. If you have any under 12 bike riders, or know of some, bring them out for a one lap race at the Triad Criterium Series!
Jacob Bernas was our only junior racer on Tuesday in the C race. He had a good ride and stuck around to watch Marcel in the A race. Hanging around to watch the Pro 1/2 riders is actually a very smart move. These kids can learn a lot about tactics (and suffering) by watching the upper category racers.
And, Marcel and Zach were putting on a fantastic show in the A race. The field was deep with pro cyclocross racers Travis Livermon, Kerry Werner, and Alex Ryan, plus a special visit from Wake Forest Alumnus and super fast California racer Dr Stephen Vogel. Zach and Marcel put in huge efforts to get away but it wasn’t to be as the pack came together for a field sprint in the last few laps.
Meanwhile, Kit Bjerk has been tearing up the local BMX scene at the Tanglewood and Burlington tracks. Kit is heading to Georgia in a few weeks for the USABMX National where he has a really good shot at more podium finishes!
We are racing BMX Monday night at Tanglewood and heading to the third round of the Triad Crit Series on Tuesday (Herbalife plant off Union Cross Rd at 6pm). Then, it’s back to T’wood on Friday and Saturday for our State Qualifier race. Details on the website http://www.usabmx.com/tracks/1906/events/schedule?mode=list and FB Tanglewood BMX.
Come on out and watch the team compete this week!
