Wow! A lot has been going on while I have been in my cave getting ready for interbike (booth 6570 by the way) Let see. This weekend is the last in the Cat 4 series, it's double points so things are a little crazy and the racing should be good. Not sure who is leading the series as ladies have been getting lots of upgrades.
On the Veloforma home front Becka Hartkop was 2nd at the Boulder Roubaix to Team Columbia racer Mara Abbot. Way to go Becka - maybe she will show up and walk away from the field at this weekends race. Rumor has it she is flying. Let's hope Becka makes an appearance. Becka please race, please... oh and send me some photo's of the Roubaix.
Tina won the state Criterium Championships a race that has long alluded her. I think before this win her best was 5th. Way to go earthquaker!!! Photo by Ed Norton

Tina was also sighted in Beijing, which she said was absolutely amazing. To get to be at the the Olympics, Wow way cool!!!

Carrie Goodbrake rocked it at the State hill climb and with her climbing prowess gett'n the big W!!!

to make the win even sweeter the family was in town to see the victory!!

Oh and if I can get this rolling too. We will have a way cool and very sexy and tasteful calendar at interbike. Check the cover mock up. And no you will not see Becka's foot in the final draft. Thanks to all the ladies for doing this, and most of all Laura McGraw for all her hard work. Not only is she an awesome racer but is a excellent photographer

One last note check out Hilary's Diary on Cyclingnews!!! She is being coached by Mike Engleman who runs the us womens development program. Here is the link to Hilary's post.

Inter Bike - spy photo's

Well - we are under two months away from interbike. It is crunch time to say the least. We will have several new rigs at the show. One new road frame, one new cross frame - single speed and our new mtn. bike. The mtn. bike has been a two year work in progress and I am very pleased with what we have as a final version. Check it out. Can you say SEXY!!!!

You can click on the pictures for a bigger version of the photo

I actually did not want to enter the mtn bike portion of the industry. I just wanted to focus on Road and Cross bikes. But when this rig got finished it was hard for me to say NO. And of course there is the added two years of $$, R&D Blah, Blah, Blah. So it's a go, and it's name is the Grundig - after the grundig world cup series of the late 80's early 90's. Yes I'm dating myself. :)

More spy phoo's of our Single Speed cross bike and New road rig will be up soon.

Have a great day and go ride your bike.
