Capital City Cycles

Posted in Cyclocross, Events, Road by capitalcitycycles on October 14, 2010

So what’s been going on lately? Well, my man Thor Hushovd is the new world champion, Contador is in limbo after doping accusations and Schlecks’ new team is looking mighty strong for next season.
If you’re like me and can’t stand the Schlecks, this would be a good time to start trying to hate the Schlecks a little less, and prepare yourself to try and like them a bit. I have to say though, that I’ve never really had any issue with Frank, but Andy is too full of himself for me to handle. As a rider though, his cockiness may be a good thing and he does hammer up the hills which can’t be taken away from him. Cancellara is reportedly signing for the Luxembourg team, and with other big names, such as Stuart O’Grady, the team will be a force to be reckoned with next year.
As far as Contador goes I’ll be very upset if he’s found guilty and looses his 2010 yellow jersey. Not because I’m such a huge fan of Contador, but because it would be a blow to the sport in general. He was so far as I know considered to be a great, clean, champion…but now that’s all under scrutiny. Also, it would be a shame if Contador would retire, as he has hinted at if he’s found guilty. We’ll see…but looking at the stages for next year’s Tour and the Tour of California, 2011 is going to be a good year for us spectators. I predict Hushovd will steal the victory at Paris-Roubaix and defeat Cancellara in a sprint finish. Ha! But that’s it for predictions on the 2011 season, there’s a few months left of 2010 and lots of things will change before the next years season. But I’ll be expecting more betting going on next year!
But enough jabbering about the road and onto more immediate things.

“The Victoria Chainline Massacre” is an alleycat race being organized by our friend Clay and will be held on Friday the 29th, the night before Halloween. This race is being sponsored by us and should be a kick ass race if I know Clay right. So be there for some sweet racing and good prices. MMMM…I love racing in the winter.
Also if you’re looking for things to do this weekend, the Cross on the Rock is in full swing and there is going to be a race at the Providence farm in Duncan on Sunday. This is a very spectator friendly race, in a beautiful location, and not too far of a drive. It will also be an opportunity to see me and Jeff suffer greatly and possibly puke. So if you’re feeling like seeing a bunch of guys and girls battling it out in the mud on silly cross bikes, come and check it out it’s always fun.
