    Here are some pix of our race bikes. Although our camping / racing series dont start until next month, we have been doing some local winter short track races. Although I have been stinking it up, my 11 year old daughter is locked into 2nd place for the series.

    Wow! That's great.

    I gave road racing a try but hated it. I started out on a road bike.

    One day my husband got a MTB, so I was like "No way! You're not going to start something without me then be 10X better before I get started!" So I bought one.

    He's still 10X better than I am, but I can't blame it on him having a head start.

    MTB racing I fell in love with right away.

    The problem with tri's is all that running and swinning. Bleh!

    I imagine cross bikes are probably in our future. Although here in Texas we can MTB and Road bike all year long, so there isn't so much a "cross season" here.

    Since my daughter is only 10, most of our road races are crits. We also do a time trial series that is held in the Charlotte Motor Speedway and a few charity rides. If you are ever looking for the coolest charity ride ever, check out The 5 Boro's Ride in NYC. It's 50 miles through all 5 Boros, and the roads are all closed. The pix are just some various pix of some of the bikes and our superstar.
