Redlands Bicycle Classic 2013

This year’s Redlands Bicycle Classic began with an Individual Time Trial up in Big Bear, as opposed to the usual time trial in Redlands. The new time trial was generally more flat than the old one, but it was much more technical. In addition to it’s technical difficulty, the fact that it was set at an altitude of just under 7,000 feet made for a challenging event. Considering the altitude, I don’t believe the results would have been much different on the old course. The lack of elevation gain was somewhat made up for with the thin air.

I was able to pre-ride the course several times leading up to the race, which allowed me to find the fastest lines through the turns and to see where I might need to conserve energy and where to give 100 percent. My preparation paid off, as the only surprise during the race was having to maneuver around a fellow cyclist while negotiating the tricky curves of the road. I was happy to end up in 18th place when the day was done. Teammate Mike Olheiser had a great race and placed 10th.

I personally enjoyed the new time trial course. It added a new dynamic to the event with sweeping turns and thin mountain air. I hope they keep the venue for next year’s event. Continue reading “Redlands Bicycle Classic 2013”

The CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team has wrapped up the first stop on the NRC circuit, the Redlands Bicycle Classic. It was a great event for the team and we were lucky enough to have David Flick of KHS Bicycles with us through out the weekend. He created two awesome videos of the event for you to get a front seat look at what it is like to be in the professional peloton. These videos are a great showcase of our athletes and sponsors alike. Enjoy!
