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!

Cold Rainy Weekend Ahead… Let’s ride in the mountains!

Forecast is nasty for this weekend. Why not hit the studios and try out the new Zwift mountain course! http://zwiftblog.com/watopia-mountain-route-released/   and the route on strava   http://zwiftblog.com/new-watopia-mountain-route-on-strava/

New climb is 1200 feet over 6 miles at a 3.8% average grade with a descent of 1200 feet in 3.7 miles at a 6.1% average grade. I assume you can do it in reverse and ride the steep climb but I haven’t tried yet. Off to ride the mountain now!
Edit- confirmed, you can ride it the steep direction! Woohoo!
