SERRL Kenardington

June 16, 2015 | By | No Comments

Last Sunday Rudy, George, Pasquale, Reece and I travelled down to Kenardington in Kent (close to Ashford) for 5th Floor’s first road race in the South East Road Race League (SERRL) Summer Series. The race was 9 laps of a 10km circuit (including one ‘neutralised’ lap – didn’t feel like it!), which meant it took just over two hours and 90km to complete. There were about 60 riders in the field, and this race was categorised 3/4, so had both 3rd Cat and 4th Cat riders in the same race. The course had a few small climbs, enough to burn the legs, but not severe enough to cause much difficulty for most of the field…

The Big CRCA weekend

May 12, 2015 | By | No Comments

The Orchard Beach / Bear Mountain Classic has always been a big one two hit of a weekend. Much of this can be attributed to the rarity of the Orchard Beach crit course in NY – a true 4 corner flat crit, then followed on Sunday by a 55 mile 5,500ft of climbing race that creates an unrecognized stage race weekend.

The over-riding reason this is such a big weekend is the effort and organization that goes into making these races absolute jewels in the Calendar by CRCA. We can’t thank those involved enough.

The 2015 weekend was to take on special significance with Bear being attributed the NY State Champs Road Race and the CRCA adding the incentive of an Omnium purse for those who did both.

Historically both Orchard Beach and the NYS RR Championship have been good to 5th NYC with Ryan placing 3rd in the champs last year and Chris winning Orchard Beach in 2013, placing 4th in 2014 behind Nik in 3rd place. Despite being ‘suited’ to me I had yet to achieve a result at Orchard…

Rapha Supercross Weekend: Gloucester, MA by Andy Bokanev Part 1

September 30, 2014 | By | 2 Comments

We were over the moon to be joined by Andy Bokanev for Rapha Supercross in Gloucester. This is the first half of the ‘Holy Week’ of Cross here on the East Coast and it was exceptional in every way apart from the continued heat and dust bowl of the season so far.

Despite the race being such a highlight of the season it’s almost overshadowed by the fun times in MA that accompany it having Andy there this year really added to it. Read last years account from our cat 4/5 perspective here.Part 2 of black and whites to follow tomorrow.

Charm City was eh charming… the course was challenging, with flyovers, 4 sand pits and bottleneck corners instantly after the hole shot and it was hot, oh so very hot. The words on everyone’s chapped lips and dusty mouths was that it was harder than Nittany.. which was unforseen. Ryan brought home our best result in 12th on the Sunday race and we had the pleasure of hanging with Master of the High Seas, Team Yacht Club’s Cassidy. Next up Gloucester.
