CX season is just around the corner (for those of us who get excited at the very thought of morning dew glistening off of yellow caution tape, a couple of months easily qualifies as just around the corner). Anyway, being the good stewards that we are here at RVR, we‚Äôd like to offer a few team clinic sessions for those amongst us who will be experiencing CX for the first time (or for those who have jumped from a moving bike in the past, and need some time to shake off the rust). You soon will know/remember the joy of the I-64 corridor road trip, bike racks stuffed with thousands of dollars worth of gear, and poor breakfast choices enroute to far-away lands like Richmond, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, and DC to name a few.
To prepare you for the season, we‚Äôll soon be sending out info and dates for these sessions which we‚Äôre going to hold at Bennetts Creek Park over here on mine and Jason‚Äôs side of the universe. The park is located on Shoulder‚Äôs Hill Rd., which is just off of Rt. 17 in North Suffolk (and like 5 minutes from 664 if you take the James River Bridge exit). There‚Äôs unlimited real estate to set up barriers to practice mounts/dismounts, a huge field where we‚Äôre going to set up cones for some ‚Äúhot lap‚Äù fun, starts, etc. Just remember to bring your helmet because the disc golf goobers stand down for NO man. Anyway, expect to see some communication on that in the very near future.
In addition, kits HOPEFULLY will be here mid to late August, and when they arrive I‚Äôd like to get everyone together for a team picture. I would think that Fat Frogs Chesapeake would be the most logical location, as Walt and Ben are our lone ‚Äúsponsors‚Äù and anything we can do to show them the love back makes perfect sense to me.
One more note: I have finally found a good source for Rogue Velo Racing die cut decals. I‚Äôm having my guy work up a few different sizes and I should be getting these in the very near future. There will be a size that will fit nicely on that new CX steed‚Äôs top tube, a good size for your car‚Äôs rear window, your neighbor‚Äôs mailbox, etc. The world is literally your coconut. Make sure you put a decal on something. I‚Äôll let everyone know when these are available and how much they‚Äôll be. Based on past experience with this guy, I‚Äôm guessing he‚Äôs going to take good care of me. More to follow.
That‚Äôs all for now ‚Äì I‚Äôm going to ask that for any team communication, comings and goings, etc that you start going to the website as your first stop. It seems that every time someone starts an email chain about something that a few folks inadvertently get left off. I‚Äôll be posting this there as well later today. In the meantime, visit www.rogueveloracing.com, Rogue Velo Racing on Facebook (hit us with a Like), or hashtag #RVR on Twitter. That‚Äôs right ‚Äì we‚Äôre freaking everywhere.
