Julie Comes Out On Top!

It was a great weekend in Warwick, RI for the New England Verge Series finale at NBX. I remember last year at this race being bitter cold, the only race at which I wore leg-warmers.

Let’s talk about Julie! If you’ve ever met Julie, you know that she’s overwhelmingly positive and also incredibly humble. Put her in front of a camera and she blushes immediately.

And so, with that in mind, here's a little recap of Mike Wissell's Official Season Opening Race (and a few pictures of the weekend that we were able to scrounge up):

Fitchburg: A Retrospective

So a couple weeks back this thing called New England Crit Week happened. 5 races over the course of the week, culminating with the 54th edition of the Longsjo Classic.

Instead, here's a couple of short stories from deep within the 100-person strong Men's 3/4 field at Longsjo:...
