Wednesday Evening Ride Series

Though short track is done, the weather is great and prime for riding. So we're hosting weekly women's rides leaving from Full Cycle on Pearl and 18th at 5pm Wednesdays.
Thanks again to everyone for a great racing series, and keep up the riding!

Series Wrapup

Hey everyone! This summer has been fantastic at CU, and last Wednesday was a great way to cap it off - a grueling long course with some fast straights and very sharp turns, a BBQ, and a loud and roudy audiance. Results are up for both Wednesday's results and the Overall Standings. We want to thank everyoe who came out and raced, as your entry fees will help send the CU Cycling Team to Nationals. In addition, an incredible thanks goes out to all of the volunteers who helped set up and clean up the course, handle registration, provide medical support, provide hot dogs and brats (Full Cycle), as well as the extensive prize list we've had all summer.
Thank you, everyone, and we'll see you next summer!

August 5 results

Only 1 race is left in the summer series! After last week, Mike West has a lock on first in the Men's A's, but 2nd is still a tight race. First is almost sealed, but not guaranteed, in the Women's A's for Becca Blay - she simply needs to finish on Wednesday. Again there's a battle for 2nd. It's still anybody's game in Women's B's for the overall. The results from last Wednesday can be found here with the total standings in the usual place. Come out on Wednesday to celebrate the final race of the season, and a very successful summer series with us. We're hoping for the biggest turnout yet to make it an epic night and end to the series.

Minor Tech Issues

There are some minor issues with our server hosting the results. We still have them, and they should be back up this evening (Monday). In the mean time, weather looks great for Wednesday's races. Only two races are left in the series, so enjoy it while you can. We'll see you Wednesday afternoon!

July 22 Results

I'm all finished with my racing series out in Chicago and can return my attention to short track results. Check out last Wednesday's results here. We had difficulty identifying a few of the Men A riders, so send us an email or comment if that was you (based on race number). Standings have been updated too.

July 15 Results

Sorry again for the delay. One of the main persons helping getting results up has been racing and out of town all weekend, and I've been gone, racing Superweek in Chicago for a few weeks (I'm a bit of a roadie, though my new mountain bike has arrived!). Results are up here though. Standings are updated at the usual place.

July 8 Results

After that little delay, we have the results tabulated here. There was an issue with the recording of the Kids race, and regrettably do not have their results. With Colby Pearce at the Breck Epic, Mike West has taken over the lead in the Men's As. Becca Blay had a great performance, taking the lead from Molly Throdahl in the Woman's As.
We'll see you at the research park this afternoon.

July 1 Results

Results have been tallied for the beautiful July 1 race. Becca Blay has closed the gap 22 points to Women's A points leader Molly Throdahl; only 14 points now separates the two. Action in the Men's A's is heating up a lot too, with Mike West gaining 14 points on leader Colby Pierce, who now leads with a narrow 4-point margin. Full results can be found here. The total standings have also been updated.
See you on the 8th.

Run-in with the law

The weather held up great for the July 1st race, and again a lot of people came out to both race and watch. It was a fun night, though some cops had some words with us at CU. For a number of reasons it is illegal to have alcohol at these events. It takes a lot of effort and support to put on this summer series, including the support of the city. So when you do come out to race, cheer or both, please leave the beer at home. It will still be waiting for you cold and refreshing in your refridgerator.

June 24th

We had a little rain for the Kids and Women B / Junior's race. But after that it was clear skies, warm sun, cheddar brats and hot dogs. The course weaved back and forth with several challenging hills and a couple of slick corners, making the race about technical skill rather than blunt speed and power. The results have been tabulated (here) and overall standings are at the same location.

June 17 Results

Sorry for the long delay, the main guy who handles results was out of town all weekend. But finally, results are posted here. Standings have been updated too. In the Women's A's, Sarah Altschuler of Walt Works and Molly Throdal of Sports Garage have a fierce back-and-forth going, with Molly holding a small margin in the leaders spot. Meanwhile in the Men's A's, though Bryan Alders (Mona Vie) has yet to get the win, his consistent top 3 finishes keep him ahead of Colby Pearce (Michelob). Wednesday should be hot and sunny, with some fierce competition. See you at 4:45.

Back to racing!

Finally, it seems the weather will stay on our side all night. After 2 weeks of bad weather, everyone is antsy to race today. It should be an exciting evening of short track tonight. See you at the course in just a little bit.

June 3rd Short Track is Cancelled!

We're sorry to say that after rain all day yesterday and last night, the short track course is far too muddy to be safe to race this evening. Enjoy the off-week, and we'll see you next Wednesday, June 10.

May 27th Results

Wednesday's rain narrowly avoided this week's short track, though there were some mud puddles. Many racers came out, some enjoying the mud but most hoping to avoid it as much as possible. To add some fun we decided to have mud primes: whichever rider made the biggest splash/mess in the puddle right before the finish line would win, based on the audience's cheering. Many riders got their feet wet, legs covered, and spray in the face. One racer actually wheelied through the mud. Full Cycle was again on hand, demoing bikes and grilling Dogs and Brats. You can find Wednesday's results here. We will have full standings up soon, though I'm sure you can figure it out by looking at last week's results too. Thanks to everyone who came out, and we'll see you next Wednesday.

We have results for the first race posted here. Have a good Memorial Day Weekend and we'll see you all again on Wednesday the 27th.
