I’m not sure who is responsible for the creation of Tulsa Tough, but they should run for Mayor of Tulsa or some other significant Okie public office. The 7th edition of the race drew strong competition, despite a split NCC schedule. This year, community awareness for the race was notably higher. While deplaning in Tulsa […]
Alec Aldape Racing three times in one day meant I had the opportunity to see the picturesque Georgetown square when the sun was rising, when it was at its highest, and when it was setting. I knew it’d be a tough day but I was looking forward to it. The cat 2 race was my […]
This past weekend was a hotly anticipated but sadly abbreviated Hammerfest Stage Race in Fort Davis, TX. Holland Racing deserves credit for both revitalizing the sagging Hill Climb, TT, RR format with new stages, and making the tough call to cancel the final stage when wildfires encroached upon large swaths of the route. With David […]
Yes, it is as fast as you’ve been led to believe. It starts fast. The hardest, and fastest 5, 10, and 20min marks were all in the first 5, 10, and 20mins. Also, the race is long. 80k (or, 50 miles), so that fast start primes the field for explosions later on in the event. Mix […]
This past Tuesday marked the return of our Super Squadra skills clinics!!! (Exclamation marks display our genuine excitement.) Cornering was the subject covered in this edition. It was an opportunity for us to provide developing riders a touch of feedback in regards to physics. Though I am far removed from the Newtownian ways of our green planet, I do know that if one turns handlebars left, one can expect to go left. Silly digressions aside, we desired to not specifically ‘teach’ riders how to corner, but rather to run them through drills addressing the onerous bits of cornering. The task of cornering is strictly limited to two elementary actions, left and right. What is important, is to develop a trust with your equipment, to feel for the apex, to keep your eyes looking through the corner, and ultimately to take the fastest/safest line. Riders all ages and skills turned out, and marked improvements were flaunted by all. We hope riders will take what they learned at our clinic, and apply it to their daily riding. See you all May 8th for breaking away!
