dawg days

This picture was snapped by District Velocity Racing p/b Bicycle Pro Shop teammate Marcus during the Cat 4 Men’s race, which was shortened for pretty obvious reasons.

DVR RSR

For totally unrelated and random reasons, District Velocity Racing p/b Bicycle Pro Shop hasn’t had much luck at Ride Sally Ride over the last two years. In 2009, a nasty crash led to an aborted Cat 4 race, and last year the Cat 3 race was called a lap early as a massive thunderstorm rolled […]

Race Report: Leonardtown Crit

Chas-Leonardtown

This picture pretty accurately sums up our highlight of the weekend: Chas took second place in the Masters 4/5 race at Leonardtown!
