Earlier this month @joe.carpisassi made a bet with the 0530 ride crew they could not ride 10 laps of a 20.4 mile circuit, 204 miles in total, through Winston Salem Aug 8-9th. The ride was to benefit Project Echelon Racing Team and the Velocious Sport Racing Team, with Project Echelon getting help buying a new trailer and donating their old trailer to the Jr/u23 team.

Project Echelon Racing Team is an elite cycling team that represents Project Echelon, a Veteran's non-profit that seeks to help veterans and their families regroup, recover, & re-engage.

Velocious Sport Racing cheered from the side of the road and sent a crew of junior/u23 riders out in the predawn hours to do some laps with the 0530 guys/ladies and keep them motivated!

Huge thanks to Joe, the 0530 riders, and Project Echelon for organizing an amazing event!!!

Race recap of Velocious Sport Tuesday night criterium (7/22/20):
The clock countdown reached 0:00 and the riders shot out of the holding area. There was a great turnout for the race as the blob was about 100 strong. Velocious riders included Katherine Shields, Zach Hostetler, Coach Jon, and the Hamblen trio- Fox, Lucius, and Gus. Local Wake Forest rider Esteban Murillo was also in the race. As with all Zwift races, the race was full gas from the gun as the riders fought to stay towards the front of the pack. The flat route of Watopia has two “bumps” that often split the group. Coach Jon, Zach, and Esteban made the front split in the opening minutes of the race. The average speed for the first 5 minutes was 30 mph! Coming out of the tunnel, the first attack from the group came from none other than Coach (they don’t call it a training race for nothing). The dig required Zach and Esteban to hold 4.5 w/kg for the next several minutes to control the field. Katherine, Lucius and Fox were in the next group on the road close behind the leaders. The lead group dwindled down to 15 riders after the second hill coming into the final stretch of rollers on lap one. It was once again Coach driving the pace as Zach and Esteban conserved as much energy as they could in the field. Katherine put in an attack up the second hill and Lucius and Fox followed closely as the chase group thinned out. Fast forward to lap 2 of the race where the deciding moment came on the last hill after the sprint banner. The pace had steady increased in the closing miles and a full gas effort split the field. Coach Jon was in the front split and Zach was close behind but couldn’t quite stay with the small lead group. The final results had Jon in 6th, Zach in 9th, and Esteban aka “Steve” in 12th. VS riders Katherine, Fox (12 YO) and Lucius (only 10!!!) were also in the top half of a large field. The Hamblen trio are flying! Come join us next Tuesday at 7:15 pm EST for another exciting addition of the race!
