Great weekend!!! I was very pleasantly surprised at the incredible attendance on Saturday morning. It tells me a lot about you all when you show up in the freezing cold to ride.


This week is more of the same with the same intent. We are building our floor ever higher so we can crash through our ceilings. Consistency is the most important objective right now, so do your best to manage your time and school work so you can come.


Remember to dress warm as well. I am going to continue to be tough on this. I do not want anyone getting sick and I do not want anyone doing lasting damage to their knees so please put the knee warmers on. LIGHTS AT NIGHT


Training Plan


Tuesday– Cross training at the clubhouse


Wednesday– Valley Riders endurance road ride 3:45 start only.

24 hour riders– MTB ride 3:45 and 4:30 start. Please make sure that you have a bike that is ready to go.


Thursday– Endurance road ride for all 4:30.


Saturday– Shoot Out 7:15am start And C team ride (details to follow)



Sunday– 8:30am start for all. There will be a road and mountain bike ride.




Over the winter break we are going to be having 3 guest youth riders from Oregon join us. They will be staying with some of the families on the team and joining us on our big rides. They are coming from a junior team and is coached by an old friend of mine. I hope we all make them feel welcome as they will be giving us the same opportunity in July to travel to Oregon to ride and race. So make some friends and create a chance at an adventure.


Also on December 11th a young man from Quebec is going to be staying with me at my house. He will be here for 2 weeks. He too is a young cyclist who is hoping to have a great season. So please all lets just be our kind selves and make these kids feel comfortable.

    I’m going to assume I’m not needed on the shoot out because of the Mountan bike ride and the toy ride.
