ECCC Providence Criterium p/1/2/3

04/28/14

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.

We lined up, all 40...

Myles Standish 1-2-3

04/15/14

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...

Trooper Brinkerhoff Memorial 1/2/3

03/29/14

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...

Grant's Tomb P/1/2/3

03/13/14

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...

Ronde de Bethel 3/4

03/06/14

By: Dominic Caiazzo

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.

After layering up and going for a spin with Mike, the two of us lined up and got the whistle. Immediately, attacks started to go and even got a bit of daylight. I...
