I'll try to keep up with posting some events for Team Member participation that aren't part of WORS, WEMS or WCA. I'll focus on events that tend to have an off road cycling element, and are somewhat local. The first that comes to mind is the 2015 Cheesehead Roubaix. Come on out and support a great event that is promoted by our fellow team mate, Dave Hanrahan. More details can be found on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1515036522080670/
Check out this exciting first-person video from the Masters Cat 1/2/3 race for the 45-49 age group at the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships in Austin TX last Friday. Team Pedal Moraine captain Jeff Melcher (number 648) appears early in the footage. Jeff finished 31st out of 135. As a tune-up, Jeff also competed in the non-championship race last Wednesday and took 6th place out of 131. Great job!
It’s time to provide you with an update
of what Team Pedal Moraine has
accomplished so far in 2013. As you might remember our “primarily” mountain
bike racing team’s main focus is the 12-race Wisconsin Off road Series (WORS). As
a team, we registered 19 members into the WORS Team Competition in the Large
Team Division. We’ve had many great individual results this year with most of
our members finishing on the podium at multiple races. This commitment to
racing has made us very competitive in both the WORS team and individual race
categories (currently 2nd overall).
The WORS series is only part of what
the team participates in. Other events include Road, Cyclocross, Charity Rides,
and the Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Bike Series (WEMS). TPM put on its own
race in the WEMS series on May 11th; 12 Hours at Northern Kettles. This race
was not only a fund raiser for the team but also supported the maintenance of
the Northern Kettle Moraine trail systems. Our members contributed an estimate
of 270 volunteer hours so far this season for the support of this race, trail
maintenance, and other team functions.
