9-21-2016 Pro Rider News Holowesko-Citadel picked up Sprinter Ty Magner and his current UHC teammate John Murphy (Asheville, NC). Oscar Clark has resigned with the team. “Eisenhart, 22, was the most-recent addition to the 2017 Holowesko roster after a potential deal with Joey Rosskopf fell through when the former team rider won the Tour du Limousin with BMC Racing. “We were going to bring Joey back,” Craven said. “We were working with him and it looked pretty good, but then that idiot goes off and wins [Tour du] Limousin and got taken back into the BMC fold. That left Eisenhart, who was going to get that spot, without a contract.” (Cyclingnews.com)

9-17-2016 Cycle Therapy Moves After 7 years on Broad Street in downtown Rome, Cycle Therapy has moved to 27 Central Plaza, also in downtown Rome.  Central Plaza is a well known shopping center off of East 2nd Avenue that will offer CT customers better parking, more convenient bike drop off and pick up, and trail access to test ride bikes.  Our website and phone number remains the same, www.cycletherapy.us and 706 235 4866 but our hours have been slightly tweaked, we are now closing at 5pm on Fridays instead of 6pm.  We look forward to you seeing our new space and celebrating the move with us.

US Pro to Knoxville Press Release from USAC: The 2017 Volkswagen U.S. Professional Road & Time Trial National Championships will be held in Knoxville, Tenn., next June, USA Cycling and Visit Knoxville announced Friday. “We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to run our most prestigious road cycling event in Knoxville next summer,” said USA Cycling CEO Derek Bouchard-Hall. “Knoxville’s love of cycling, natural beauty and renowned hospitality will make an exceptional location for us to crown our top professional road cyclists in just nine months!” The 2017 Volkswagen U.S. Professional Road & Time Trial National Championships will run June 23-25 in Knoxville. The men’s and women’s individual time trials will run on Friday, June 23, followed by the June 24 Knoxville Gran Fondo. Showcasing the weekend, the men’s and women’s road races will run Sunday, June 25 in downtown Knoxville, highlighted by challenging climbs as well as other scenic features offered only in Knoxville. “Visit Knoxville is thrilled that USA Cycling has chosen Knoxville for their event,” said Kim Bumpas, President, Visit Knoxville. “The Visit Knoxville Sports Commission worked very hard to make this partnership come to fruition. We are also lucky to be working with The American Red Cross of East Tennessee on the Knoxville Gran Fondo. We hope that the community rallies around these elite athletes as well as participates in the Fondo and visits the Cycling Expo at World’s Fair Park.”

USA Cycling is making this a standalone event in June rather than pairing it with Masters and Para Cycling National Championships in May as it did in 2016. This decision focuses greater attention on this marquee event and eliminates the many challenges associated with holding multiple championships simultaneously. The timing of the June 23-25 event aligns with the UCI calendar’s designated timeframe for nations to run their respective road national championships. This marks the first time that USA Cycling’s professional road championships fall in line with the UCI’s designated road national championship weekend.

Rosskopf Renews with BMC Georgia rider Joey Rosskopf has renewed his contract with World Team member BMC. Joey said: “I’m super excited for the chance to stay with BMC Racing Team,” Rosskopf said. “I just want to keep making steps forward and get better at competing at this level. I assume we’ll be doing even more UCI WorldTour races next year but that’s the goal, it’s a super high level of racing. “I learned a lot from being in the position of leadership at the Tour du Limousin, winning the first stage and defending throughout the race. It gives me confidence and I feel really good about racing for the rest of this season and next year.”

9-15-2016 Ashley Brock Memorial Service From the Hub Bicycles: There will be a service for Ashley Block at Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Prince Avenue tomorrow morning September 15th at 10:00am. Everyone welcome please show your support for their family.

9-13-2016 Athens Tragedy (Note: An updated article is here.)Everyone has been keeping up with the Athens Tragedy on Facebook today. I’ve held of posting anything on SE Cycling until the names were released. A woman was killed. A well known mountain biker in Athens is in the ICU with multiple injuries. Brian Molloy from The Hub bicycle shop was able to get out of the way and was uninjured. The driver has been charged with First Degree Homicide among other charges.

From the Athens Banner Herald: “A woman who allegedly was driving under the influence of drugs struck three bicyclists with her vehicle in east Athens Monday night, killing one of the bicyclists, Athens-Clarke County police said. One of the bicyclists was pronounced dead at the scene, another was in the hospital with serious injuries and the third was treated for minor injuries and released, according to police.

The fatal wreck occurred on Athena Drive, between Olympic Drive and Spring Valley Road, where police said a vehicle driven by 31-year-old Whitney Baker Howard’s vehicle crossed the double yellow line and struck the bicyclists. According to police, there was evidence the woman was driving while under the influence of drugs and also that she may have been on the phone. She had a child passenger in her vehicle at the time of the crash, police said.

Howard was charged with first-degree homicide by vehicle, driving under the influence of drugs, endangering a child by driving while intoxicated, failure to maintain lane and improper use of a mobile phone while driving. Police had not released the name of the person who was killed as of mid-morning Tuesday.”

US Pro to Knoxville I heard from a friend in Knoxville, TN that this Friday (Sept 16) at 10 am there will be a major cycling announcement at a press conference at the World’s Fair Park Amphitheater. Attendees will include the CEO of USA Cycling, a few professional cyclists, local elected officials and other dignitaries. Everyone in the community is welcome. From what I have previously have found out, it looks like US Pro is moving to Knoxville. This is great news for the Southeast as we’ve had this race for nearly 10 years now–Greenville, Chattanooga, Winson-Salem, and now Knoxville. I understand there will be some other announcements as well.

Use a Blinkie! It’s unfortunately that time of year when it starts to get darker earlier. Please remember to use a front and rear light or blinkie when riding on the roads. The darkness makes it hard for cars to see you, even as early as 7:00. It was cloudy last night, and I was surprised by how dark it made some of the roads in Buckhead. All of the local bike shops carry a variety of lights. For road riding, I use the Knog Blinder Road, which has multiple blink & steady settings at different levels. For the rear I use a Bontrager Flash-R. It is really bright and can also be seen in the day. For mtb and off road, I have an assortment of newish and old lights that allow me to see instead of being seen.

Previously off limits due to hunting in November and December, the County has determined that the area’s growing interest in mountain biking, trail running and hiking called for keeping some of park’s trails open. Hunters will still have access to the park outside this area. During November and December, access to these trails will only be available through the Pitner Road Dog Park. Trails will open at 10:00 am. No access will be available from the main parking lot. The rest of Allatoona Creek Park’s trails will continue to use the following schedule.

Fool’s Gold MTB Races Fool’s Gole MTB Races– Sept. 17, 2016 – 85 Spots Remaining in 60 mile race If you would like to participate in the 60 mile race, please register soon as there are only 85 spots remaining in the 60 mile. There is plenty of room in the 90 mile for long course racers. Important Dates: September 14th – 8 pm Registration Deadline. No race day registrations for this event. New Start/Finish Location and Improved Courses! We are pleased to be partnering with Anderson Creek Retreat in Ellijay, GA to host the 2016 event. On Site Camping for 2016!  One of our primary reasons for the move was to provide you with the option to camp at the race venue. Due to limited space, you MUST RESERVE YOUR SPOT by emailing lisa@mountaingoatadventures.com no later than Sept. 12th. Please include the type of camping unit…RV, Sprinter, Tent or Sleeping in car/SUV, so we can ensure we have room for you.
As far as the course, all of the fast Bull and Jake Mountain singletrack that you know and love will remain the same and will continue to be ridden in the same direction that you are used to. We knew you’d like to hear that. The main course changes will be to the gravel road sections and we feel will make the course safer and more fun. The 90 mile course will complete two 30 mile laps of the Bull and Jake Singletrack and then head back the same way as the 60 mile riders for a course that includes approximately 60 miles of trail and 30 miles of gravel or paved road.

9-4-2016 Cobb International Village Velodrome From a Facebook post: The United States is successful internationally in sports that are accessible to the masses. There are running tracks, swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields and football fields abundant in most communities. These are all sports the United States is successful in. Cobb International Village will be breaking away from the norm and include a velodrome. For those not familiar with a velodrome, it is a banked track where cyclists appear to defy gravity as they ride around the steeply banked turns. Without going into physics, once a rider hits a certain speed, they will not slide down the banking. Racing is exciting to participate in and watch on a velodrome. Fact is there are less than 30 operational velodromes in the United States. In contrast, the significantly smaller United Kingdom has just over 20 velodromes and currently has the most successful track cycling program in the world. Cobb International Village’s plan to include a velodrome will open up recreational, training and racing opportunities for the local community.

Trish’s Notes: Yes, a velodrome in Cobb County! I have been in touch regularly with someone on the consulting team to CIV. It is looking like a real, real possibility. Construction on other parts of CIV is scheduled to begin in early 2017. The track will most likely be regulation 250m. I don’t have a firm date on when the track might open. Like the DLV, there will be “memberships” or somesuch available to ride it. You will need to be certified for safety reasons, etc. There will be programs for all levels of riders and racing. I think the Atlanta market can support two tracks because of the large population north of 285 and south of the north arc of 285. I am still a HUGE supporter of the DLV and will be racing there in 2017. We have more racing than almost any track in the US except T-Town–but no one can match T-Town. Needless to say I am really excited! I can already see a DLV Friday & Sat. night Pro race the weekend proceeding a National Championship at the CIV track! Can you imagine the quality of racers it would attract to Atlanta? ATL is already home to a few former Masters Track World Champions, current Masters National Champions & medalists, a Junior that has represented the US at Junior Worlds & Pan Ams, other National Champions (DLV has riders from several nations!) as well as Elite medalists. This all blows my mind!

But for now…. #crossiscoming.

Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty Press Release: Coming on September 25, 2016 and taking place in Georgia’s Premier Cycling Venue, the Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty boasts many of the same roads and mountain climbs as the elite Tour de Georgia. Come ride the Ride of the Pros! The Six Gap Century’s ultra challenging route takes you up and down six of the steepest climbs in the North Georgia Mountains. Test your stamina with more than 11,200 feet of vertical climbing over the 104 mile course. Elevations for the six gaps in this ride range from 1,400 feet to 3,460 feet. The toughest climb, Hogpen Gap, will test even the strongest riders, averaging a 7% grade for seven miles, with sections as steep as 15%. The Three Gap Fifty’s alternative route offers half the gaps and half the distance, but is nevertheless a demanding and challenging course at 58 miles. Elevations range from 1,400 feet to 3,364 feet.
