Whoa! So much has happened since our last post! Let’s get you up to speed:
The 2013 BioPark Blast was a HUGE success! Well over 300 riders throughout the day- we were blown away by the attendance! Results can be found here: 2013 results
We had a large number of collegiate racers in the Men’s and Women’s fields (sadly, the NM schools missed out on the fun!)
New for this year, the Flapjacks TT added collegiate categories to help make it a full weekend of racing! While attendance was high for the event overall, collegiate riders were a little sparse- 3 in the Men’s A, 1 Men’s B, a couple of Men’s C, and 3 Women (come on SWCCC…we can do better than that!). The Men’s A TT was won by UA rider Joey Iuliano and thanks to his 3rd place at the crit took the lead for the Men’s Omnium! Maya Cross-Killingsworth (UA) won the Women’s B TT as well!

ASU Crit and McDowell Mountain:
The following weekend the UA club was back at at the ASU crit and McDowell circuit race.
The results in the Men’s A/B/C race looked similar to the UA Crit with Spencer Crites (ASU) taking the win, Nathan Franklin (NAU), and Iuliano (UA) in 3rd. Max Rich (UA) took the win in the Men’s C in commanding fashion with Andrew Keller (UA) rounding out the podium in 3rd.
In the Women’s race, Maya, Shelby, and Allison took on the ASU and NAU ladies, taking 3rd, 5th, and 6th respectively.
On Sunday the team headed to McDowell Mountain Park for a non-collegiate race. The course was a challenging 1.3 mile circuit with a gradual climb and quick descent- not much time to rest! In the Men’s 5, Max Rich took 3rd and in the Cat 2 race Joey Iuliano took 3rd as well.
The team enjoyed a weekend off last week and is looking forward now to the 2nd Avondale Crit on 2/24.
