Rock Hill BMX and the Love Valley Gravel Race

Kit Bjerk hit the Carolina National at Rock Hill BMX and raced Expert 17-20. This is an ultra competitive class with about 50 riders fighting for the win. Kit breezed through motos, quarters, and semis to make it to the Mains on Saturday and Sunday and picked up a 3rd and 6th in the 17-20 class!!! I think a move to A Pro is right around the corner this year. Big thanks to Potter Racing Products for getting our BMX jerseys done in time for the Carolina National! If you need BMX/downhill or pit jerseys MADE IN THE USA, talk to Doug!

Meanwhile, Peter Wallace was suffering in the muck at the Love Valley Gravel Race and the other u23 riders were at collegiate road races. Peter rode most of the race with Mother Team (Carolina Masters) member Emily Shields, working together to make it to the line in 3:24ish! As you can see, conditions were awesome! Mud, gravel, slippery pavement, mud, and gravel.

Ace Again

March 21

 

The junior team raced at Ace Speedway one more time last week.

Why do we keep racing at Ace, it’s not a race series, it’s the only venue hosting races at the moment. We’ve lost a lot of good road and Criterium courses in North Carolina and there doesn’t seem to be anyone taking up the slack. Always remember to support your local race promoters!

Now, on to the fun stuff. The Salazar Garcia’s are well acquainted with Ace by now and know exactly how the race will play out. Their experience paid off, Niko and Matthew visited the podium again in first and third! — with Maria Salazar, Crumley Roberts, Attorneys At Law, National Cycling Center and Ken’s Bike Shop.

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.

Presenting the Team

We recently had our team presentation at Mullen Lowe in Winston Salem. Big thanks to everyone who participated and showed their support for the team!

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.
