Midweek Crit Series - LaBicicletta Domination!

Last night was the first night of racing at the Tuesday night crit series put on by the Midweek C.C.
After years of crushing the field every week we wanted this year to start like no other. Heath Cockburn set the standard for laying all out on the road and punishing anyone who showed up on a Tuesday and the past two years Ed Veal has followed in his footsteps hurting anyone who dares to go off the front with him. Our new crew in 2010 was out to dominate from the gun and they sure did not disappoint!! Ed Veal and Jamie Smith attacked 1 lap into the race and got away with Anton Varabei. It wasn't too long before Anton had enough of the hard paced rotation and popped. Ed and Jamie continued to creep towards the back of the charging pack. It took an hour but with 2 laps to go they got on to the back of the group (lapped the field) and rode through it with 1 lap to go and sprinted to victory!!
It was quite the night and a great way to start the season!! Congrats to all the team members who made it out and helped by shutting things down in the pack.
See you all next week!!

LaBicicletta Elite Team - Domination at FCV

Team LaBicicletta Elite Youth Stick Together and Win Together at F.C.V.

"On April 3rd, the Forest City Velodrome hosted a night of elite racing for Canadian and American track riders.
The women raced for a cash prizes and preems of over $1000 in the first annual Mary Kelly Memorial Race.
Team LaBicicletta's youngest riders were there to support each other on and off the track, and did so very well.

LaBicicletta's Krista Ruby fought with a very strong field for 100 laps to earn a well deserved 2nd place finish.
Krista was also very successful in earning extra cash by winning all preems.

On the Men's side of track, Junior Racers Kyle Rupay and Justin Zottl battled with the elite men in a Sprint tournament, Madison and an Endurance race.
Kyle was eliminated in round two by the eventual winner and Justin made it to the third and final round and took a second place finish.

In the Madison, seven teams competed. Kyle and Justin racing as Team LaBicicletta lapped all but one team and won the tournament.
In the final men's elite endurance scratch race, Kyle took a hard fought fourth and was the youngest rider left on the track.
Both Kyle and Justin also won their share of preems.

A great team effort from the young LaBicicletta Elite"
