Virginia’s Rough Roubaix

Eric Crandell and Tom Vaquera travelled to Harrisonburg, VA for the 2015 Rough Roubaix. 92 Miles of mixed paved/gravel with 7400 ft of climbing. We had a great day, unfortunately the cameras only lasted about 2 hours, while we finished the ride at ~ 5:36 mins. While the roads were great, Clementine, Billy Jack’s and some new place were a ton of fun for pre-race fuel .

Junior Development Team Ride

Made a little video from a 50 mile team ride from the Fulton’s house down to North Carolina. Was a great day, one of the few this winter.

New Rogue Velo Juniors!

Please join me in welcoming our two newest Rogue Velo Juniors – Sean Hughes and Samantha McKinnon.  Great kids that love to ride bikes.

First up is Sean Hughes. He is 11 years old and just completed his first year of racing.  He raced both road and cyclocross in 2014.  His proudest moment happened at Mt Trashmore race where Sean finished 5th in the 10-14 field.  He also placed 3rd in the 11-12 VA State Cyclocross Championship field!!!

Sean’s goal for next season is to consistently finish in the top 5.  The way he improved this season, you can bet he will be up on that podium in the Rogue Velo colors!!!

Next up is Samantha McKinnon who will be a big addition to our woman’s team.  You may have seen Sam flying around the course in the Cat 4/5 and Cat 3/4 races, and if you didn’t see her on the course then you probably saw her on the podium as she is a regular there.

Sam has been racing triathlons since she was 6 years old and her first bike race was the Shenandoah Time Trial at 11.  Her best bike experience so far was the VA Crit State Championships where she was the only female to hang onto the lead pack of boys.  Sam says that race taught her a lot about race tactics, position in the pack, chasing down a break away and her first attempt at breaking away with Casey Fulton..

Sam’s goals for next year are to place well at Road Nationals and CX Nationals as well as upgrading to CAT 3 in CX.

Welcome to the team Sean and Samantha. We are excited to have you.

We are back! The time is here…

Tis the night before Jamestown
when all through the state
Not a cross racer is sleeping
Just awaiting the date

The tires are nestled…
all snug on their wheels
While Rogue Velo team mates
search East Coast for deals

The tubulars are glued
and topped off with Stans
while we search for all races
throughout East Coast lands

The bikes are hung
On the bike racks with care
And each tire is pumped
with an exact pressure of air

We’ve replaced all our cables
and a new shiny chain
In preps for the mud
The sand and the rain

So here’s to our friendship
Share a beer and a smile
Caution tape is back
And will remain for a while!

And yes…. I am addicted…..
