On Tap

So here's what's on tap.

This weekend is the Meijer Grand Cycling Classic in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I did a similar race two years ago, but the course map looks slightly different then it was, but the start finish seems to be the same on some nice bricks. Three weeks ago I did a crit with some bricks on it so I'll be use to that. There is some decent money so I excpect a good strong field with plenty of regional representation, and plenty of Bissell riders as it is sort of their home turf.

The following weekend is Downers Grove. Saturday is the Pro-Am race in Sunday is the USPRO Criterium Championships. This will be my 5th time at the event. I think this is a race where we could create some surprises so keep an eye out. Also on Saturday is the Mass Ave crit in downtown Indy. I think they time out well enough that I might try to do the double on Saturday. I LOVE CRIT RACING.

The weekend after is, you guessed it more criteriums. First an NRC crit just north of Indianapolis in Marion, IN. Then the day after is another local crit on the north side of town in Carmel, IN.

After having done more criteriums in a month and a half then I have done all year it's time for the biggest race goal for myself of the year in the USPRO Road Race Championships in Greenville, SC. I'm really looking forward to this on this year. I feel like I'm riding pretty good right now and my teammates are riding great as well. So we should be up to the challenge once again to do something special.

Most likely finshing out the racing season will be the Univest Grand Prix. I've only done this race once before and that's a shame as it is a really nice road race that I could do well at. This year they have added a short team trial the day before for some excitement. It's always fun doing one those. To bad there aren't more of them. Finishing out the weekend is the Doylestown Criterium.

Breeze On
