Last weekend was another great weekend of racing for the AirLine /Stage 1 crew, including many great results at the Mansfield Hollow Cyclocross race, and a bunch of great podium time for our downhilly crew at the Powder Ridge Enduro race on Sunday. Special congratulations to JT Hotkowski for not only winning his division, but for clocking the fastest run of the day for the whole event. Proud Papa Paul took the top spot for his race as well; that's two fast Hotkowskis for those of you keeping track at home. Young gun Muddy Mayhem'er Justin had a great race as well, earning a podium spot hot off the heels of a great cyclocross race the day before.

Next up: Belltown Cross, this Sunday, October 20th, right here at the Haddam Neck Fairgrounds! Come on down to check out some great cyclocross action, sponsored by the Stage 1 Cycling Team.

SATURDAY HOURS: 12-9
We will be opening late and staying later as part of the Second Saturday Village Center event.

Right now, we have a TON of used bikes on sale, including a couple sweet full suspension bikes, some great hardtails, and some gorgeous fast road bikes. We also have great deals on Swagman racks - want a nice hitch rack, but don't want to pay $450? Swagman has great options starting at $250! Come check them out!

Best of luck to the Stage 1 crew racing at Mansfield CX tomorrow, and to the away team racing in Baltimore, and especially to East Hampton's own Ruth Spooner who is representing the University of Vermont at Collegiate Cycling Nationals in California this weekend! So proud to have our past (and future) teammate competing nationally! Go get 'em Ruth!

It was another great weekend of racing throughout New England! Collegiate racing at Highland, night CX at Night Weasels in central Mass, day CX in Amherst Mass, and some wheel tweaking enduro goodness at Thunder Mountain in the Berkshires!

Special congratulations to Byron G, earning his first CX podium, to Brooks for taking a few moments off coaching to actually race his way to a podium finish, to Robbie who is inexplicably paddling his way off giant waterfalls, and to AV who had a kick ass top five finish race against a crazy competitive pile of forty singlespeeders. Here's some pics to get you through a rather gloomy Tuesday:

It was an off weekend for cyclocross, but that didn't stop Stage 1 from having all the fun at the Vermont50 mountain bike race, and the Eastern States Cup enduro race at Mountain Creek. Thanks to Allison, Brooks, and Cristal for the great pictures! ...

EDIT AGAIN: Rides are cancelled. There is a giant wall of storms that will soak us pretty thoroughly. Sorry!


EDIT: Apparently there is a 90% chance of thunderstorms right at ride time, so it is not looking good, but we'll keep you posted.

Tonight we ride: lights and bug spray required! Gravel ride leaves from the shop at 555. Mountain ride, multiple levels, leaves from Hurd Pavilion at 620. Please bring lights and bug spray. Mosquitoes are now carrying chicken pox, poison ivy, and bedbugs, so use of insect repellent is strongly encouraged!.

Happy hour to follow at the shop!

Bedbug-carrying mosquitoes? Almost sounds worse than triple E! (Which, by the way, is what I first saw when I read 555!)

555?!?!?

It was another great weekend of racing for the Stage 1/AirLine crew at both the Holiday Brook Farm Collegiate race and at the Newtown CCAP cyclocross race.

East Hampton's own Andrew, Jarrett, and Ruth all won their dual slalom events representing UVM, UConn, and UVM respectively. The college kids are cleaning up!

In Newtown, the whole team had an amazing showing, with several great first races from our newest team members Patrick and Justin, a stellar turnout from our junior squad, a sweep of the podium for the 9-11 boys race by Dolan, Hudson, and Jax, and hard fought podium spots for the adults including Brian Girard, Steve Sadler, and Karel Citroen.

Special congratulations to Kelli Montgomery who took the win in her first cyclocross outing since kicking ass through the XTerra PanAm series, and to Anthony Vecca who battled tooth and nail in the Singlespeed race to win it in a photofinish at the line!

Please check out the great pictures at CCAP, Peter Blake Photography, and Broken Steel & CX Appeal, Powered by Wayfarer Bicycle.... just too many great pictures to share!

As always, many thanks for the great support from Skratch Labs keeping us hydrated during the event, Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. for the post race hydration, Smith Optics, and of course Giant Bicycles and Liv Cycling!

Tonight we ride: 6pm gravel ride leaves from the shop, and 620 mountain ride leaves from the Hurd Pavilion! Bring your lights, and bring some bug spray because the news said that mosquitoes are now carrying the black plague or some such nonsense. Also, feel free to bring a tasty beverage for happy hour because the fridge is looking pretty barren.

Thanks to Muddy Mayhem Mama Allison S. Scott for the great from last night's CX race in Rocky Hill...

Bug spray is really important for everyone at dusk and dawn. EEE is not something you want to mess with. Sorry, my public hat is on.

Let me re-emphasize what Brian said about the fridge being empty. BRING BEER, rations are low!

Just in case you were wondering what laundry day looks like at AirLine HQ:

(Note to Thursday night riders: charge your lights now in case we get caught out late tomorrow night. 6pm gravel ride leaves from the shop, and 620 mountain ride leaves from the Hurd Pavilion!)
