Iowa City Weekend

Written by: Admin

Some team Powerade/IF racers made the annual spring trip to contest the popular weekend rural road race and downtown criterium at Iowa City April 24th-25th.

Cody McCullough notched his first victory of the season by taking the win in the Master's 40+ road race on the familiar, mildly rolling course near the Kalona Cheese Factory on Saturday. Overcast skies and some wetish roads were in store but unlike past years, the wind wasn't a factor this time only blowing at around 10mph from the southeast. Bob Greigg finished 13th. Bill Feiges was 7th in the concurrent Master's 50+ race.

As of Saturday at 11pm the forecast is looking great: Mostly sunny, a high of 69 (55 or so for the start at 11am). East winds 6-15mph.

Brent and Bob got out the CX bikes once more and raced in Lincoln on Saturday, November 21st at Pioneer's Park. They agreed it was by far the most challenging CX race either has done this year.

Kluck Upgrades

Written by: Admin

Jeff Kluck was recently upgraded to Category 2 for cyclocross and performed quite well in his first two races with the hot shots.

At the Minnesota State Championship in Crystal, MN on November 14th, Jeff was 15th in his category out of 59 finishers. The following day, also at Crystal, he was 12th out of the 42 finishers.

Iowa CX Championship

Written by: Admin

Brent and Bob went down for the Iowa State CX Championship in Altoona on November 14th to do some Master's racing: Bob in 35+ and Brent in 45+.

The course, in a city park with athletic field, had terrain ranging from bumpy, flat, technical with some off-camber; to bumpy, hilly, technical and a bit of pavement through the uphill finish. For good measure, a high-step barrier section and another high barrier at the base of a run-up were included to keep the HR high.

After a too brief warmup, the three Masters fields started at 15 second intervals on the chilly but dry, overcast mid-morning.

The cream quickly rose to the top as Lane, Shrek and C. Vandelune put the hammer down to string out the 35+ with the fastest 45+ers soon working their way through the stragglers. Brent, riding borrowed tubulars, seemed to easily float past Bob early while he banged along on what felt like wagon wheels (or clinchers with a little too much psi).

As Bob went backwards, Brent worked his way to 4th before crashing late losing three places he couldn't regain to finish 7th. Bob finished 9th in his race. Full results are here.

Linn, Greigg at Skyview CX

Written by: Admin

The first ever CX event in Norfolk was hosted by the EVCC crew at Skyview Park on Saturday, October 24th. This was a nicely flowing power course with one sustained climb, several short ups and downs, a couple of barrier sections but lacking tight, technical challenges. It's a course that a couple fish-out-of-water roadies can handle without too much trouble.

Kluck 2 for 2 in Wisconsin

Cyclocross Season Underway

Written by: Admin

Fall is here and so is CX season. Three of the PIF crew have already done some racing off road.

Brent Linn went to Des Moines for the first round of the Scheels Central Iowa Cyclocross Series on September 26th at the Capital City Cross. He finished 8th in the 45+ category.

Be Careful Out There

Written by: Admin

It's getting dark earlier now that fall is upon us. Be extra vigilant in low-light conditions and when headed into the setting sun if you are road riding in the evening. Yesterday evening another cyclist fell victim to a hit and run
