Rogue Velo Racing is very excited to announce the addition of new members to our team, and to lock down our team for the year. The goal of this year’s recruiting was to add more depth to our women’s’ cyclocross and road teams. First and foremost, Eric and I are ecstatic that Sarah Kozak has decided to remain with RVR for the Cyclocross season and we plan to work on her to try to keep her around for our road team also (more to come on that from Eric). We are pleased to announce veteran mountain biker Mandy LaClair has agreed to become 48% better looking and race in the Women’s CAT 4 field this year. If you have been to any recent parties, you have noticed her bubbly personality (and love of beer) and realize that she fits right in with the RVR crew. Speaking of bubbly personalities, Meganne Jarvis Huett has also agreed to team up with Mandy and our other women CAT 4 racers to put the fear of God into the rest of the CAT 4 field. Riding since 2009, Meganne made the “leap” to racing in the road season for 2016. She has learned so much this road season and is beyond excited for Cross Season. Our final new team member, Jessica Lehman , has also decided to give CX a try after a very successful road racing season in the Hampton Roads area and racing throughout college. The RVR kit automatically appeared on her, as if sent from up above, when she said, and I quote…. “I realized that playing in the dirt is way more fun, less prissy, and has more beer.” Jessica enjoys mountain biking and has a triathlon background, like many of us here. Please join Eric and I in welcoming out new RVR family members. The women’s CAT 4 fields will be fun to watch and cheer for! Thank you ladies for joining our RVR family! Have I mentioned lately that I love this team?
Congratulations to Michael Seek and Melissa Mosley Presnell on tying the knot tonight! It is so awesome to see this family continue with weddings, babies and general family friendship! Have I mentioned lately that I love this team?
