As always, let me know if I got anything wrong, such as your category or name or if your time's way off from what you thought it was or whatever.
Thanks to all who showed up. And thanks Ron and Don for your volunteer efforts.
It really turned out to be an excellent night for racing. The wind died down and the skies cleared up just in time to race. Pretty much an excellent evening all 'round.
See you out there again next week

- This is the team bike of the Cashcall Mortgage Domestic Elite team. It has Dura-Ace 7900 shifters, front derailleur, and rear derailleur with an FSA SLK crank and brakes. It also has FSA carbon handlebars and a carbon seat post. Carbon Serfas water bottle cages are also included. The Zipp wheels are 303 tubulars that are in amazing condition with freshly glued tires. These are the year right before they came out with Firecrest so the shape is pretty similar. The whole bike is in great shape with no cracks in the carbon, it also has never been crashed! With the Zipps I am asking $3000. But I also would not mind selling the bike with no wheels for $2300. But make me an offer!
Tour de France champion Chris Froome will start Liège–Bastogne–Liège on Sunday, his Sky team confirmed Wednesday.
Froome was originally scheduled to skip the Ardennes classics, but will take the start of “La Doyenne,” according to a team spokesperson. The Kenyan-born Froome was originally scheduled to start Milano-Sanremo in March, but backed out when road conditions forced organizers to change the route weeks prior to the race.
The Sky captain’s top result in Liège is 26th, in 2013. Three months later, he rode away with Great Britain’s second consecutive Tour title.
Garmin-Sharp and Belkin will be among the teams to compete in the second Tour of Alberta in September. The race organization unveiled its host cities Wednesday and will kick off with a prologue in Calgary and finish six days later with a circuit race in Edmonton.
“I loved the Tour of Alberta last year. It had plenty of challenges throughout the whole race and I think the fact it was the inaugural Tour of Alberta made it all the more special to me,” 2013 winner Rohan Dennis (Garmin) said in a press release. “The race itself was organized perfectly. I am looking forward to being around the people of Alberta. I honestly could not believe how friendly everyone was. It’s an important race for me and the team this year.”
The tour will reverse course in 2014, starting in Calgary and finishing in the capital of Edmonton. New host cities include Lethbridge (stage 1), Innisfail (stage 2), and Wetaskiwin (stage 3).
“The commitment by our host communities is special,” said executive director Duane Vienneau. “They are true partners in every sense of the word. Through their commitment, we will be able to stage a second and successful race.”
Organizers also unveiled a new title sponsor in ATB Financial and will confirm the stage routes later this year.
