february keeps getting faster

with the Tour of Cali around the corner for the men, and the Merced NRC big shows on the horizon for them and the women ... the racing on the left coast is just stupid fast right now.

The town of Martinez threw down many a thousand for their crits this year ~ and even ridiculous amounts of water slicking up streets couldn't stop a damn good showing of riders.

borderline epic day of racing.

More pics n' blabberings after i ice this back, down another shot of vino, and get some sleep.


... bike racers should get Monday's off work.

Take the day off tomorrow, tell 'em I said you could!

Lori it looks like the blue suit is the Smurfettes.. Uh I mean Touchstones new colors.. and if Jen is not mistaken that is the return of Jill Mclauglin....

Its going to be fast this year

Velo Bella said...

Thats PABW/Tibco. Its Brooke, who won the race pretty handily. The first of two this weekend.

Sunday's win was even more impressive as she outsprinted the legendary Tina Pic and her 7 other Colavita teammates.

So the smurfette kit is Pabco this year. MMMM

Velo Bella said...

I think its the same as last year, except Brooke was wearing the baby blue Sheila Moon warmers

velogirl said...

And PABW isn't PABW anymore -- they're now Team TIBCO.

Jill returned to racing last season (with Touchstone).

Dam, Saturday was just absurd, I have not been dropped that fast since Nevada City 2 years ago. BIG props to Hernado and Jandy who came back from the dead and bridged themselves back into contention. VERY impressive.

I heard Cherry Pie made Saturday look like a EB Crit...full Colvita and Fast Freddy to boot. Thank god I sat that one out!

Tony Rocha said...

It looked fast! Nice work by Olaf and Jandy most certainly. They looked to be dropped and pulled it back, impressive.

fun stuff on both days and rubber side down for everyone (at least in the 35+)

hey that's the back of my dad's head in that picture! hehehe

I have to say, if it's not a VB winning a race, I do like to see Brooke win. When I was talking to her at Cherry about her win saturday, she couldn't stop talking about how great her teammates are. And she always looks so suprised and excited when she wins, as if she doesn't know she's a bad ass.

word.

B.Miller is a complete badass and a very good person to have in the sport.

i hope she rocks it this year.

Brent Chapman said...

yah cant argue that. The tallest smurfette is a very tough competitor and a cool person. Not meant to be a slam on her at all.

She snagged lots of good results from some top competitors last year and shows some good potential to be up on some big names.


I know Jill did a few last year, but I honestly think this is her come back year... It's always good to have her back to make sure theres no slow races.
