Bring On the Spring

The beginning of the 2011 season is knocking on the door with a hammer. The season starts off with the wheelmen hosting a race at the autobahn in Joliet. I did this race last year, and it was one of my favorites. The week continues with the Gapers Block Crit series, hosted by Half Acer. The racing will consist of 2 cat 4/5 races and 1 women’s race. The fields for all 3 races always have a good turn out. To finish the week off we have the 4th annual Burnham Racing – Spring Super Criterium. Not bad to start off the season. That’s just a warm up for Hillsboro Road Race the folling weekend.

The team plans on having riders at Joliet and the first 2 nights of the gapers block races. Then it’s off to 5 days of training in Southern Illinois. We had a training camp last year around the same time and it was a blast. I personally suffered due to the fact that I weighed too much, so going up hills sucked but I rocked on the down hills.

I want to take the time to welcome our new sponsors along with our always faithful title sponsors of Beverly Bike and VeePak. This year we added on Easton and PowerBar as sponsors. Giant and Serfas also have been with us since last year. Latter in the season we will be putting together reviews of all the equipment that we have. I hope that you read about all the equipment. And if you like what read then come on down to Beverly Bike and talk to Paul or Mike. I’m sure they can help you out from sales to service.
