Steve Bauer + DCVelo = Love

Sunday, September 10, 2017

Several weeks ago Team Beyer Auto team member Greg Wood rode the climbs and cobbles of the Tour of Flanders with former Tour de France yellow-jersey wearer and Olympic silver medalist Steve Bauer. Steve won dozens of races during his professional career and is currently working with the BMC racing team on the road, as well as running Steve Bauer Bike Tours (http://www.stevebauer.com/ site/home). Greg presented Steve with a DC Velo jersey and invited him to join our World Championship track team.

Race day, Saturday, July 22 started hot and got hotter for the Tour de Tysons.  By mid-day temperatures had reached the upper 90's and racers - mostly in the juniors and masters events - looked for ways to stay cool while racing. 

But relief came in the form of a strong, mid-afternoon storm that brought high winds and heavy rains and by the 3:50 p.m. start of the premiere men's event, temperatures were much more reasonable.

All of the area teams, and most of the best riders, showed up for the start and the racing was aggressive throughout.  

In the end, DCVelo's own Ben Fogle out sprinted the talented field of riders for the win.  Another successful day in what is turning out to be a great season for Ben!

Here's what Ben had to say about the day:

From the whistle, the Battley squad set their sights on becoming a seven man wrecking crew...but DJ (Donald Brew), Marchio (Brian Marchionini), and myself were constantly on the tail end of any attack setting up for the inevitable sprint finish.

Jose Escobar sought to change the outcome going into the bell lap with a fresh set of legs and hit the front for the first time all day. Jumping immediately, I still wouldn't make the capture until the downhill. Looking back, it was apparent that we had a significant gap and thoughts of this move sticking began to emerge. So, I hit the front but not quite ready to go all in. This proved to be a sensible tactic as the field caught us shortly after rounding the corner to begin climbing.

I readied myself for the inevitable surge and was able float in the top 5 going into the final straightaway. I patiently waited for someone to make the first move and the rest, as they say, is history.

Sommers Ties for the W in the Points Race at Masters Track Nationals

Friday, June 30, 2017

In characteristic fashion, DCVelo President and Team Captain, Mark Sommers went all in Tuesday evening in the 60-64 points race at Masters Track Nationals in Baton Rouge, LA.  Mark and 2 others lapped the field and Mark finished tied in points for first overall with 25 but ended up with the silver medal to the eventual winner, who had a higher placing on the final lap.  

We say, "Blammo"!  About as good as it gets, tough guy.  Great ride, Mark. 

To those racing in the scratch and points races, one warning: watch out!  :)
