Rather than write about my TT experience, which is pretty consistent week to week (I rode *expletive* hard and *expletive* fast), for my second race report, I’d do a feature on a team that not only participates in the series but also is a platform for helping more women get into cycling and racing.
Dana Platin and Roberta Smith, Naked Women’s Racing Team
I met Roberta Smith from the Naked Women’s Racing Team in week 2 – she was the rider immediately behind me. Roberta is not only crazy fast (she zoomed past me within 1:30 of my start), she’s incredibly nice and an ambassador for the sport of cycling. She didn’t hesitate to offer this newbie some great tips and some whoops of encouragement as we zoomed by each other on the course. . . Read more

RaceCO founder Kyle Sipes was inspired to create a grassroots mountain bike race series that would be fun for racers and spectators alike. He moved to Colorado from California and was inspired to create the Race the MAC series, based on his experience as a participant in a grassroots mountain bike race in Irvine, California. In looking at the Colorado racing scene, he noticed that most series were based in the central Front Range (Golden/Boulder) and that the races catered only to the racer’s experience. His idea was to bring a racing festival to the southern Metro Denver area… Read more

I had the opportunity to participate in this 7 week time trial (TT) race series and I JUMPED on it. TT racing had always been something I was curious about but had never tried. I have the TT bike and the aero helmet, so all I needed was the willingness to endure 7 weeks of all-out riding. Easy peasy… Read more
We tried. Really hard.
The COBRAS have been planning for over a year to bring back the Bear Creek Lake Park Time Trial (BCLPTT). Last year we realized it was more than we could manage with just having taken over the KHMTT and we wanted to do it right, so it was decided to wait until this season…
