Lawson's Dismal Dash report

Tripower won 4 of the 7 categories at today's Dismal Dash and had top 5 placings in nearly all the others to cap a great day of racing.

In addition, out of 240 total riders we placed 3 riders among the overall top 12 (or so), with Crazy, me, and Bill G.

Brenna won the cat 4 women. BJ won the 40+ women, Bill Gilmer won the cat 4 men, Mark Edwards won Juniors

The day's best TP time was turned in my Crazy Mike who rode to a 5th place finish in the 1,2,3 mens race with a 59 something to beat me by 50 some seconds and wrestle away the title as fastest TP TTer !

Conditions were brutal with freezing temperatures and TONS of wind. At times the wind was so strong that is was hard to literally not get blown off the road.

Congrats to everyone who braved the elements and represented, and way to go team !

Stars in his eyes?

K-Blog goes racing.

our new womens summer gear!

Dunham's wheel

We have all spent years of watching Dunham's rear wheel from the hold-on-for-dear-life position. He put this Zipp 340 rear wheel up for sale this week. He says it's in excellent condition, but I don't think he is factoring in the wear of all the grabbing it has endured.

Hill Repeats

The Tripower Norfolk Annex has little-known good riding on Sundays. No traffic industrial neighborhoods means hill repeats on Berkley Bridge (#1) to Indian River Bridge (#2) to Campostella Bridge (#3). I tagged along with the girls who are fresh off their race season debut last weekend. Crazy fatigue set in after 3 loops so we took a break with a spin out to the Sparrow to Rokeby to Lillac loop. Then it was back to the bridges. Read more.
