Hopeful Friday April 13, 2012

Fri, 04/13/2012 - 10:26am by schmalz

If you listen closely, you can hear the training plans of hundreds of amateur bike racers nearly reaching their peaks, it's a noise that sounds almost exactly like a Zip Car begin rented for the weekend. Yes, it's Battenkill Weekend, which is the Super Bowl for skinny tightly clothed bike racers from the Northeast. And there's no registration link fro the race, because if you haven't registered yet, it's probably too late.

Of course, every Sylvester needs a Frank, so there's a Spring Series race in Central Park on Saturday, and on Sunday there's a Spring Series race at FBF.

     It was a weekend’s worth of racing that I shall now type about, so here is the typing that I will do.

  • Hopeful Friday August 22, 2014 -

    I leave the area for a week, and it seems that everyone has forgotten how to snipe away about other riders sandbagging and cutting courses. What has become of the internet?
