WS2013: Race #: Crit Results


Race #2 is in the bag. It was a cold wet night on Friday, so I want to give major props to those of you that came out to race and big ups to everyone else who came out to stand around in the cold, supporting these guys, thanks! John Budinoff took the road group with ease and won $45 dollars for the effort. Rob V. won the track group with a great uphill sprint at end to get that win. He won $110 dollars of pure fixie money. Sprints will be the style of race this Friday, track bikes only, head to head to until there is a winner.

WS2013: Race #2 Crit


I’ll see you all tonight at the corner of Beverly Blvd and Belmont Ave at 8pm. The Road group goes first at 9pm. The track group is brakeless only and if there is a rather large track field (which there probably will be), then I will separate into two heats with the top five from each heat, going head to head for the fixie money. $5 dollars race!

WS2013: Race #2: Crit Map


Here is the route map for the crit course this Friday. It’s a little over a mile long, a clockwise course, starting from Beverly Blvd/ Belmont Ave and it has one descent and one ascent (both with tight turns leading into them). I highly recommend you get out there this week and have a go at it. Find your line and you’ll be fine. Registration is at 8 pm, meet me at the corner of Beverly and Belmont Road group goes first at 9pm. The track group is brakeless only and if there is a rather large track field (which there probably will be), then I will separate into two heats with the top five from each heat, going head to head for the fixie money. $5 dollars race, see ya’ll Friday night.
