Well, well, well….lookee here. Good to see you all again. We apologize profusely for the lack of blogitude, but we’re back with the new year to bring you the news on our little team that could. So much is happening! We’ve begun our team rides, planning our training camp and our racing schedule, and hanging out a bunch drinking Rainier as we prep.
We have some new riders in the black and yellow this year! On the men’s side, we’re bringing on Doug Ollerenshaw and Ira Ryan to help out throwing down, and we’re returning our entire 2013 men’s roster. On the ladies’ side we brought in Erin Goodall, Catherine Cooper, Sydney Running, and Madeline Kovacs, all of whom will bolster an almost fully returning women’s roster.
One good way to lose a rider, is to the professional ranks, and we wish our dear Anna Grace Christiansen the best as she switches across to the NorCal based JL Velo team, and will entertain a full NRC schedule with her new team. She may show up to terrorize a few local races so you’ll still see her around. We’ll all be cheering her on as she steps up to the big leagues to flex her considerable strength on the national stage.
We have a bunch of new sponsor news to announce, but we’ll wait until everything gets finalized before speaking publicly on the matter. Good news, good partners, and a good budget look to be in line to help us race near and wide in the Pacific Northwest.
This is our EIGHTH SEASON here in OBRA, and we’re stoked to continue our traditions of classy racing and good time havin’. Beer is a good thing. Always has been, always will be.
