Kay Hits the 50+ 4-spot at Ed Sander; Marchionini a Muddy 6th in the 40+

Wednesday, November 08, 2017

It was not raining by the 1:00 p.m. start of the Men's 50+ race at the 2017 edition of the Ed Sander Memorial Cyclocross - Event #6 in the BikeReg Super Series in Adamstown, MD, on Sun Nov 5, 2017 but it didn't need to be did it?  


A steady rain over the previous 15 hours, plus 7 or 8 events already contested on the day did a sterling job of softening the course into a sloppy, muddy mess that had otherwise highly skilled riders duck-walking up hills and clipping out to slide-pivot around off camber corners.


David Kay took full advantage of his hard earned, front row starting slot and motored away with the race leaders on the first lap of 5 in the 50+ contest for a solid 4th place finish.  


Brian Marchionini actually took the hole shot away from all of the CX partisans and led the field through the first turf section before giving up a handful of spots for a very respectable 6th place.

Early Ride on an Early November Day

Sunday, November 05, 2017

Saturday was a great day to kit up and clip in for an early start from Conte's in Arlington.  

We rolled around Northern Virginia with a brief stop for a photo at Beyer Volvo in Falls Church, and then ambled on out to take in the fall scenery around Great Falls and surrounding areas.

Whereas the pace got a little hot on Military Road back into Arlington, courtesy of some of our younger and fitter participants (there are always a few of these guys!) from Rock Creek Velo, NCVC and others, this was mostly a social ride, allowing us all to do the sport we love best.

Ryan "NOVA" McKinney led the way.

Greg Wood is Going to Kona

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
DC Velo's own Greg Wood has qualified for the 2018 Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii by finishing second in his age group at Ironman Maryland and making a qualifying time of 9 hours 46 minutes 43 seconds.

Absolutely fantastic result, Greg!  Congratulations.

Here's Greg's write-up:

As I stood on the ballroom stage during the awards ceremony and the lei was placed over my head, the words “you’re going to Kona!” rang from the loudspeakers. I could hardly believe that less than a year ago I began training for my first Ironman event and now I had qualified for the 2018 World Championships. It seemed like a dream.

Preparing for a triathlon, especially an Ironman-distance triathlon, was unlike anything I had done before in my many years with Team Beyer Auto. Of course success is always built on preparation and performance, but an Ironman requires that it all come together across three disciplines over 9 hours of racing on a single day. I hadn't arrived at the finish line alone; I was there because of the encouragement of my teammates, as well as support from all the Team Beyer Auto sponsors---especially Conte's Bikes. And, most importantly I was there because of the indulgence of my family.

It still seems like a dream, but I really am going to Kona. Aloha!
