2010 was a very good year for the Powerade/IF racing team. We raced 183 times with 70 of them ending atop 3-step podiums. We had 26 victories, 18 second places, 26 third places and 120 top 10's overall.

The top three most frequent racers were: tie- Jeff Kluck and Bob Greigg (21), Buddy Houts (19) and Jon Nelson (16).

The top three most frequent winners were: junior racer Buddy Houts (7), our other junior, Zach Schuman (4), tie- Cody McCullough and Matt Maxon (3).

Besides Iowa and all our bordering states we raced as far west as Colorado (Ken Peterson, Leadville 100) and as far east as Ohio (Jay Chesterman and Bill Feiges, Mohican 100).

Notable results:
In August, Buddy was the Junior Iowa State Road Race champ for the second consecutive year.

Late in the season, Jeff Kluck recruited five racers from Sioux Falls that turned out to be cyclocross commandos. They combined for 8 victories and several top 3's. 16-year-old Zach Schuman contributed 4 of those wins. He started the season in the Junior races and advanced to Cat 3 while at the same time competing in high school wrestling.

Jeff upgraded to Cat 2 in cyclocross for 2010 and won the Nebraska CX Series by a comfortable margin.

Other highlights:
We staged the USAC sanctioned "Twin Bing Classic" road race in April. The A and B category format attracted 96 racers. We plan to continue the race in 2011, possibly with a more traditional format.

We again staged our USAC sanctioned 3-race 20k time trial series in June-August for the 4th consecutive year. We plan to continue the series in 2011.

We have added 8 new racers to the team. Five will be departing.

Thank you to our Sponsors: Powerade, Independent Fabrication, Shimano, Rudy Project, Voler, Albrecht Cycle, North Iowa Oral Surgery, Palmer Candy, Crary Huff Attorneys at Law and Two Wheeler Dealer.

We look forward to competing in 2011. We'll see you at the races!
