4th of July Criterium in Hailey

I love these races which take place after the parade in Hailey.  The criterium course is along two blocks of Main Street and First Street so you can watch the action from many vantage points.  The first race was the Pro Men 1-2 category.

cyclists lined up before the start of the crit

The race was led and won by Remi McManus of Team Exergy.

Team Exergy were a strong presence Sunday

The afternoon of racing included contests for young riders and a Competitive Pool (Men 3, Women 1-2-3 and Master Men) and the Development Pool (Men 4-5, Master Group B and Juniors).

We need some more criterium races in Hailey so the local riders can get more experience.  Thanks to Blaine County Rec District and Powerhouse/Road & Dirt for putting on the races.

Sawtooth Century 2010 is history, what now??

We were treated to wonderful weather for the century this year.  It was a little early in the year for me but I did it, along with some good friends.  What’s next?  There are a number of weekly rides including Nappy’s ride on Wednesdays starting in Ketchum and the Sturto’s ride on Mondays starting in Hailey.  Our women’s only ride is Tuesday evenings starting at the bike path at Fox Acres Rd. at 6:00.  Now I’ll have more time for mountain biking, too. Come on out and I’ll see you on the road or trail!

2010 Sawtooth Century

The Sawtooth Century is 3 days away!! I know you’ve been waiting to sign up – looking at the weather and wondering why they moved the date up, we haven’t had time to train! But you can do it. You can sign up at Sportsbaseonline. You can pick up your bib bag at the Elephant’s Perch from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday. The ride starts from the Elephant’s Perch on Saturday at 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. The ride finishes this year at the Sun Valley Festival Field. The proceeds go to the Wood River Bike Coalition which is used to advocate and promote bicycle and pedestrian safety, education, and access here in the valley while encouraging everyone to further utilize human power for their recreation and transportation needs. You can read more about them on their About page.
