ECCC Providence Criterium p/1/2/3

Apr
28

Despite my team's heroic efforts, and their tremendous 1-2 podium placements at the road race the previous day, my personal failures (attributed entirely to my rubbing brakes and absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I can't go uphill (shut up)) were still gnawing selfishly at my fragile ego. The ride down in the #van to Providence gave me even more time to reflect and prepare my fat-kid revenge on all the skinny jerks that made me hurt so badly on Saturday.

Myles Standish 1-2-3

Apr
15

On the Friday night before the race, we threw a surprise birthday party for our friend and teammate, Smith Anderson. It was a great night, during which we enjoyed many adult beverages. So, to say that I was going into this race with high hopes would be inaccurate. I've never finished a race at Myles Standish. The first year I did it, there was massive confusion when our field got the bell at 2 to go. I won the field sprint on that occasion, and decided once was enough. Last year I broke a spoke. So, to say that I was going into this race with high hopes would be inaccurate.

Trooper Brinkerhoff Memorial 1/2/3

This weekend marked my 9th race of the year already, and it was still March. Someone tell me I'm not a collegiate bike racer anymore. Because of pending bad weather in Rhode Island, and my desire to do better at longer road races this year, I decided to make the drive up to Coxsackie NY again for the third weekend in a row. The night before was occupied by the B2C2 Bike Swap, which as usual, results in lots of beer drinking, eating of delicious baked confections, and a less than ideal amount of sleep. For those who don't know my #fatkid chronicles, I have very little self-control.

Grant's Tomb P/1/2/3

Mar

As online registration for the Men’s Elite Race at Grant’s Tomb filled up with big teams and big names, my hopes for a high finish faded. The New York Elite teams were coming in force, our local friends at CCB were bringing strong guys, and QCW was coming up from Philly with a veritable army. Early season races are a roll of the dice.  You never know how your fitness stacks up before you get a number pinned on, and despite having some good results thus far this season, I knew that there would be plenty of competition to test our team.

Ronde de Bethel 3/4

I was terribly excited for this race from the moment I decided to do it about 40 hours earlier. Cold be damned, predictions of snow be damned. The idea of getting the first race out of the way before chasing the collegiate dream in a week was tempting and I wanted to know where my fitness was.

Ronde de Bethel P/1/2/3

"OK. So. It's going to be really nervous. We have to be patient and sit in for the first half of the race!" was my advice to my teammates. Having won here 8 times, if there is a race I fancy myself an expert, it's Bethel. The goal for this race, and for all the races for the time being, was to work on racing well together so that we can execute when the bigger races come around.

Walburg Classic Cat 2

Feb
24

As the 60th inch of this winter’s snow fell on Boston, eight GLV teammates were happily encamped in Austin, Texas for a week of training and racing. After a week of riding that included multiple 100+ mile days, we dragged our tired bodies to an early season staple of Texas bike racing, the Walburg Classic Road Race.

I couldn't be happier to open my season for Green Line Velo with my first win for the team and the team's first win of the season. As many of you know, last season was a season of recovery for me after knee surgery in April, and I'm glad to say it -- I'm back.
