The State Crit

M1 riders were well represented at yesterday's State Criterium titles at Nundah in Brisbane.  

Thunder, LG and Paul Andrews kicked off the morning in Masters 4 with a hard and fast 30 minutes.  Despite numerous attacks off the front the race came down to a bunch kick and it was on for young and  old - ok, just middle age (we are talking Masters 4 here!).  All the boys finished strong despite being exposed to a fair amount of wind in the crucial moments of the last lap

Stepping up and racing Elite Women's, Spycat had to deal with tough wet conditions later in the afternoon.  In another bunch finish, Spycat finished strongly to come home in 6th place in a classy field of Elite Women riders.

Despite not coming home with any medals, all M1 riders kept it rubber side down and came home in one piece which makes for a good weekend of racing!

CANCELLARA SPRINTS TO 2014FLANDERS VICTORY


FABIAN CANCELLARA WINS RONDE VAN VLAANDEREN FROM A FOUR-MAN LEADING GROUP, HIS THIRD VICTORY IN THE FLANDERS’ MONUMENT.


“I tried to ask Dirk [Demol] through the radio how many seconds we had because the last thing I wanted was the others coming back,” explained Cancellara soon after the race had finished. “That would have been the end of the world. For the spectators at home I am sure it was an exciting track final. It was man against man and I just kept pushing to the end. I did it for the team, and for my wife because I promised to bring the flowers home. I feel sorry for the Belgians. I was against three Belgians at the end….but now I am happy and it’s time to go rock the bus and have a nice evening.”

The Trek Remedy 27.5 and Rene Wildhaber



Rene Wildhaber and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (JHK) found themselves in British Columbia with some time before an enduro. They contacted a float plane, rented a cabin in the Chilcotins and grabbed their Trek Remedy 27.5s. They spent a few days going on some all-day backcountry rides on the 140mm travel trail bike, weaving up the backsides of mountains before charging down.
See the Remedy models at Trek Bikes.

SPARTACUS!
