LAPT and Palmyra Road Race Report

LAPT and Palmyra Road Race Report

LAPT Road Race (3/4s) I enjoy a crit as much as anyone, but Road Races have an special place on racing for me, because they combine both longer distances (not that long around here) and speed.The LAPT Road Race is mostly flat with a couple of tiny kickers (one really close to the finish line). The first 10 min were intense, with a good turn out we had a few teams of considerable size (Trek Midwest, Valocause, LAPT, Brazen Dropouts) and attacks were constant during the first lap. I was cursed with lonliness and had to do a fair amount of...

Velocause RR @ Palmyra Cat 4/5 2018

The start of my second road race for the season was very different from my first, the week before. As Wisconsin weather goes cold and rainy one week and the next, this weekend, it’s hot and sunny. This time I was ready to race, with the experience I gained from the beginning of the road season and the nice weather for the day made me extra excited. However, I woke up a little late and only had a doughnut and a cup of orange juice for fuel. The course at first seemed like it wouldn’t suit me doing well with it’s 250 meter slightly...

Ross’s LaCrosse Omnium Report

After a long winter/spring riding in my basement, I was very excited to get to La Crosse and see some sun light and temperatures in the 70’s and 80’s. For the La Crosse Omnium, I raced in the Masters 35+ 4/5 category. Since I have done this event before I knew what to expect on Friday nights uphill time trial, 550 feet of climbing over 2.4 miles and lots pain and suffering. I was initially disappointed with my time when they first posted results, but then realized they added 30 seconds onto everyone’s times. Anyhow, my time was just...

Robert’s LaCrosse Omnium Report

The La Crosse Omnium is my favorite bike weekend of the year. All three events are great, plus La Crosse is usually a couple weeks ahead of Milwaukee weather-wise. La Crosse is also a fun small city, so there is plenty to do between races. I competed in the Masters 1/2/3 field, which was stocked with a lot of talent. Exciting! Now, for the races: Time Trial: The time trial starts at the base of Grandad’s Bluff and climbs to the top, with a rolling section after the climbing is done. If you do it right, this is the hardest short effort...
