Hüdz-Subaru announces Elite Cyclocross Team and Grass-Roots Program

(Boulder, CO) Hüdz, Subaru and the Vista Auto Group are pleased to
announce their support of a 10-person Elite cyclocross team for the 2009-10
season. The team is managed by 303 Racing, LLC in Boulder, Colorado and
features Jon Baker, Chuck Coyle, Matt Pacocha, Colby Pearce, and Brad White
on the men’s team, and Lauren Hall, Lara Kroepsch, Rebecca Much, Emily
Van Meter and Wendy Williams on the women’s squad. In conjunction with
the Elite team, Hüdz-Subaru will also be organizing a National Grass-Roots
Program designed to offer support to crossers of all levels.

“It really is ambitious for a first year program,” said Hüdz owner
Lance Johnson, co-director of the team, “But with a partner like Subaru
and the Vista Auto Group (which also runs a successful road team) we have a
wealth of experience to draw from. Plus, when we were able to attract such
an incredible group of racers we decided to just put our head down and go
for it.” The team will be co-directed by racer Chuck Coyle, himself a
9-year veteran pro racer for teams like Nutra-Fig, Successful Living, and
currently the Subaru-Vista Auto Group road team.

Koppenberg Recon

News Item: 

Say say 3rd times a charm right? Twice the Koppenberg has been canceled and according to the promotor there will be NO cancellation this time.

Yes, we are CHANGING THE RULES. From here on forward the race will not be canceled b/c of mud. In the future, if the hill is unrideable, then the expectation is that riders will hike the bike up the grassy sides and remount on top. So this means it is highly recommended that if it is wet outside, you bring Mountain Bike shoes and pedals. We will investigate footbath options (seriously) on top of the hill in case of mud on the cleats before remounting.

This coming Sunday, August 30th, is the 2009 Koppenberg race so I took a tour of the course to see how it is doing and here is what I found.

Loose!. That is the one word I would use to say how the course is compared to past races, but there are the details....
