Stage 1 Cycling Team

and the Muddy Mayhem Junior Team

The Stage 1 Cycling Club is a registered non-profit cycling organization based in East Hampton, CT. We got our start over 30 years ago and have gone through many iterations and changes over the years. But one constant remains: Stage 1 is dedicated first and foremost to having fun, building a community of cyclists where all are welcome, and promoting the sport. We believe that pretty much everyone is happier on a bike.

We welcome and are composed of riders of all levels, from beginners to elite racers. If you don’t know how to ride a bike, we’ll teach you. If you’re a national level rider, we’ll support you and help make you better. Most of all, we want to ride with you. To join Stage 1, please contact us first through our Facebook page, or drop by AirLine Cycles in East Hampton, CT so we can meet with you, tell you more about our club, and learn more about you and your goals. The waiver form on this BikeReg page is the final step in the process, AND is also required for anyone interested in joinging in on our rides — regardless of club membership. It’s completely free!

Correction to Segment 5 Results
It just wouldn't be the CSCU if I didn't make at least one mistake in the results. This time, I failed to give Dave Geissert his points. That shook up the standings a bit in the Rolling Stones. Here are the final results:

For Segment #5:
1. Sean Walsh
2. Dave Geissert
3. Todd Samuelson
4. Donald Annino
5. Kim Costa

For the OVERALL:
1. Sean Walsh
2. Donald Annino
3. Kim Costa
4. Dave Geissert
5. Todd Samuelson
6. Fabian Esponda
7. Edward DesPlaines

The top 3 for the overall remained the same, so the prize distribution is still correct. Sorry guys. I've reposted the results here with the correction. drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Ji44XOosRCDwQxYk2CoKkkLdxsqaX6G1?usp=sharing

Thank you Honestly glad it did not change the overall.

Your New CT Segment Champions of the Universe (and other notes)

Well Gang, it has been a whole lotta' fun but we have reached our conclusion and it's time to award our New CT Champions of the Universe!

First, a HUGE thank you to some very classy competitors who have elected to graciously donate their winnings to various junior cycling programs! Tip of the hat to each of you!

- Geno Villafano , Misfits Champion, donating his entire prize winnings to CCAP!

- Meg Pennington, Runaways Champion, donating her entire prize winnings to STAGE 1 Junior Cycling Programs!

- Shawn McCann, Mastodons Champions, donating his entire prize winnings to STAGE 1 Junior Cycling Programs!

- Sean Walsh, Rolling Stones Champion, donating his entire prize winnings back to the CSCU junior competitors! This allowed us to provide cash prizes to our 2nd & 3rd place overall junior winners.

Thanks! I can tell you all are way classier than Kurt and Jake! 😉

Ok, I previously announced our Overall Winners. You can visit this link to access all the results: drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Ji44XOosRCDwQxYk2CoKkkLdxsqaX6G1?usp=sharing

Now let's congratulate our Segment #5 Rocky Neck winners:

1. Bad Brains (Jr. 14-18) - Justin Green! Justin threw down a blistering 11:54 at Rocky Neck. Pat Woble, who took second, was no slouch either with a 13:37. BTW: These guys are both under 16! Thank god they're on my side.

2. Minor Threats (Jr. 13 and under) - Hudson Nablo, who turned 10 just a few weeks back, rode Rocky Neck in just 15:03.

3. Lunachicks (Athenas) - Kate Powers brought it home with a 17:37 on a day with sloppy conditions on the hill. Well done!

4. Rollingstones (55+) - Sean "man that guy can roll" Walsh rode a solid sub-14 minute segment with a 13:31.

5. Misfits (Open P/1/2/3/4/5) - Geno Villafano scorched the trail with a 10:51. Sadly, he took one of my treasured KOMs along the way - by a lot... Super impressive time that will stand for a long time to come!

6. Runaways (Women P/1/2/3/4/5) - Meg Pennington dropped a 13:47 and nabbed 4 QOMs (!) on her ride to segment victory!

7. Mastodons (Clydesdales) - Shawn McCann and Ed Crane were locked in a tight competition these last several weeks, but Shawn edged out Ed by 7 seconds with a very fast time of 14:29.

All of our adult winners this segment will receive a sweet pair of TASCO cycling socks and a 4-pack of Fat Orange Cat from the great folks at AirLine Cycles and (of course) Fat Orange Cat Brew Co..

Our special prize this week goes to all of our Lunachicks riders who will each receive a custom Lunachicks t-shirt courtesy of AirLine Cycles for their perfect completion of all segments! (KBB is seen below sporting one of these awesome shirts!)

I only awarded prizes for the Overall at the party. If your earned a top 3 spot in the overall, you are entitled to a prize along with the folks who won Segment #5. All prizes are available for pickup at AirLine Cycles. Be sure to offer Brian and the AirLine crew a HUGE thanks. Without them and the great people at STAGE 1 cycling, none of this happens! For those of you owed prize money, I will be in touch with you to determine the best way to get you paid!

See you all next time... Could be soon... Who knows? 😉
