New BBVP Sponsor for 2012

What do Fly V Australia, the Italian Olympic Cycling Team, and Beverly Bike/Vee-Pak have in common? They'll all be sporting lids from LAS this season. BBVP proudly welcomes the Italian company as one of their sponsors this year as they compete in Pro/1/2, Cat 5, and all the races in between. You'll see the red, white, and blue train from the Southside of Chicago racing at your favorite weekend crits wearing the Victory Supreme model, LAS's top of the line helmet. Made entirely in Italy, it is one of the lightest helmets you can buy, weighing in at a mere 230 grams. Go to for more info. A BIG thanks to LAS!

Winter Training

Back in Chicagoland the team was taking full advantage of the unseasonably warm holiday weather, logging a decent number of endurance rides. I had to tough it out on my own... 

I went on a 50-miler from Marathon, FL to Key West, FL, which includes beautiful stretches along the overseas highway, including the Seven-mile bridge as seen here.

Thankfully I'm back home now and can start training with the team again....
