Also, everyone please wish Brendan Rhim best of luck as he just left for his National Jr. Team trip to Belgium. He'll be gone for over three weeks. Good luck, B!
Plan for remainder of summer:
We're now in our mini off-season break, but some kids will be doing Claremont on their own tonight. We'll resume Claremont as a team on Tuesday, July 31 and PLEASE NOTE, THIS WILL BE THE ANNUAL PIZZA/POOL PARTY AT MIKE THEROUX'S HOUSE! Bring your bathing suit and your appetite! We'll aim to leave at 4:45 pm in the team van and we'll be home by 10 pm.
We will be doing the WBC dirt road training ride every Wednesday from the SH for the remainder of the summer (5 pm). Cross bikes with cross tires are mandatory, so see Dan at the Start House if you do not have your cross bike lined up.
Speaking of cross, for those not doing Green Mountain Stage Race, I highly recommend that you register for the Blue Steel Cyclery All-Day Cross clinic on Saturday, September 1 in Auburn, NH: https://www.bikereg.com/Net/
August is usually family vacation month so, other than the Concord Criterium on August 4, we won't be doing any team racing until Green Mountain Stage Race at the end of the month (8/31 to 9/3). All riders 14-18 who are Cat 1-4 are encouraged to do the Junior Race at GMSR. Please feel free to register asap: https://www.bikereg.com/Net/
Also, please don't forget to pre-register for Concord: https://www.bikereg.com/Net/
So, for the remainder of the summer, we'll be doing Claremont on Tuesdays, dirt road rides on Wednesdays and then a mix of things on the weekends. I'll be fleshing out the calendar with the fall cross racing, so stay tuned! Enjoy these warm days and keep riding!
