Race Days

Today, we just wanted to do a little shout to a few races:

As mentioned Friday, the Yankee Springs Time Trial was Sunday, it went off without a hitch and was another successful year. Both Ryan and Jacobi sounded pleased with their results, although Jacobi has a bit more of a story involving his disc brake rotor bolts. I'll see if I can swing some sort of race report out of one of them this week along with some pictures.

Another event we are pleased to be part of is Trans Iowa. Surely not the original in the growing epic gravel races but truly one that has gained the reputation for being one of the toughest. The race goes on this weekend out of Grinnell, Iowa and is 'one big ass loop' of 315 miles of unsupported gravel goodness. With rain in the forecast for this weekend, it will be interesting to see how the race plays out and who finishes. With the 70+ riders registered for the race, we wanted to make sure all the riders at least walked away with some thing and supplied one of our new Bottle Traps for everyone. Stay hydrated, stay safe and ride hard!

To give you a little taste of the race, here a few videos from previous years of Trans Iowa put together by some of the riders on it:
