2011 Move up rule

Everyone should start in the same category that they were racing in last year. No excuses such as, “I’m out of shape” or “I haven’t been riding much”. If we adhere to this only the the winner of each race must move up to the next class this year. Look for your name on the results page after each race.

September Training Series

There is a new kid in town. Brian from GR Bicycle Shop is putting on a training race every Wednesday night in September. You can get your cyclocross practice in by participating in live race action brought to you by 42-85.

Holland Results

Well that is a wrap on the 2010 season! Special thanks to the City of Holland, John and Rob the Groundskeepers, Macatawa Cycling Club and Velo City Cycles for all the hard work, after party and super sale. The year was very successful due to all the sponsors, racers and volunteers each and every week. 2010 saw a lot of new racers to our sport and that is encouraging to see.

Congratulations to Emily Savickis, our first female to win the annual Cannondale frame and fork raffle! Enjoy your new ride Emily!

It is that time of the year to begin planning for the annual December event to collect underwear and socks as well as donations for the Mel Trotter Ministries.  The event will occur on Thursday December 16th from 7 PM to 11 PM at  McFadden’s Restaurant & Saloon  at 58 Ionia Avenue SW.

Invite friends and family to join members of the cycling community as we help support this worthwhile cause. Bring underwear, socks and/or funds to participate in this fun night.

A new service has been added this year to place holiday tubs at various shops and businesses around the area to collect items from those unable to join us on the evening of the event. If you would like to place a collection tub at your work or favorite coffee shop please let me know. Watch for upcoming announcements on the locations of these collection points.

This event hosted by Priority Health and the Priority Health Cycling Team.

End of season wrap up

This year was very successful due to all the sponsors, racers and volunteers each and every week. A huge thank you to everyone! 2010 will be remembered as the season of nice weather. We had maybe two races with some drizzle during a portion of the race, that’s it!
Congratulations to Emily Savickis, our first female to win the annual Cannondale frame and fork raffle. Enjoy your new ride Emily!

Finale/Holland Update

11-18-10 Up next is the grand finale in Holland. Just spoke to John the groundskeeper. He has lined up a food cart with hot cocoa, coffee and hotdogs for the event. He will also have a water truck with pressure washer so everyone can take home a clean bike after the race! You have got to be there for this race. Unbelievable fun in a football stadium and a great after party at New Holland Brewery inc. soup, snacks, soft drinks, coffee etc. free for everyone and beer @ mug club prices! Velo City Cycles will also be open from 4-5 pm w/ super KissCross deals. All sponsored by Velo City Cycles and Macatawa Cycling Club. We will also draw a name for the Cannondale frame and fork (no need to be present) and hand out a boat load of other stuff to those in attendance including a Velocity wheelset, Yakama racks, Serfas pumps, saddles, bags, Dakine hats, Smith sunglasses, Heed, shirts from Stomach of Anger, some Hell Yes goodies, Soigneur and Kenda tires!

Season Finale

Thanks again to Cathy and all the West Coast Riders that dealt with the weather all day. Break-Away Bikes and Dean Cohen went all out with the prize donations including some really cool stemmed beer glasses to the first 100 racers, perfect for your favorite Belgian beer!
