Red Trolley – Photo Essay

The CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team lined up for their first criterium of the season at Red Trolley, in San Diego. Wrapping up our 10-day training camp, the team bolstered a full squad. Returning racers David Santos, Brian McCulloch, Michael Weicht, Wes Holloway and Justin Williams were joined by new teammates Michael Olheiser, Chris Barton, Cole House, Logan Loader and Fabrizio Von Nacher.

The course is very fast with a swooping downhill turning right into the punchy hill to the finish. The team was active through out the race initiating breaks and attacks, but in the end nothing would stick. In the end we placed 5th in the finish to cap off a great training camp and our first experience racing together as a team.

Enjoy the photos of the event!

Boulevard Road Race – First Victory of the Season!

In Southern California, Boulevard Road Race has a reputation for many things……foul weather, an uphill headwind finish, a field of motivated racers ready to race hard, and a course profile that’s arguably the hardest on the SCNCA calendar. For me, its reputation of being a tough race and the fact it’s my hometown race are the reasons why I love Boulevard.  Prior to last weekend, I’ve raced Boulevard four times. Once as a Cat 4 and three times as a Cat 1. The first time racing the pro race was in 2010 and I DNF’ed.  In 2011, I made the break finishing 3rd, and in 2012 I finished 7th.  After finishing top 10 two years in a row, it became a big goal to win Boulevard in 2013.

I’m not a fan of taking too much time off the bike in the off-season, so I typically clip in sometime in early October.  Additionally, I met with my coach to figure out which races to target in 2013.  Because Boulevard is held in early February and near my hometown, El Cajon, it only made sense that it was first on my target list.
