Welcome to the 2011 Body Concepts Race Team first blog post…

We are starting the year with 30-riders (up from 12-last year): Ten-cat 5, Two-35+ cat 4, Ten-45+cat 4, Four-45+cat3 and Four-women cat4

Our sponsors this year include: Body Concepts, VSP Global, Nike Vision, Western Health Advantage, Premier Access Dental, Bicycles Plus, Toft Fascial Plastic Surgery and Sierra Valley Chiropractic

We have completed our first two skills clinics covering group ride skills, climbing, descending and braking/cornering… Our next clinic is January 8th: Attacking, Bridging, Blocking and more pack ride skills, our February 5th clinic will cover Leadout Trains and review the January clinic.

We will be posting Race Reports again this year so stay tuned…just 5-weeks to the first races of the season

We have some Great Goals for the team again this year and have some big shoes to fill in matching last years BAR and BAT wins in the 45+ cat 4′s….and developing different categories on our race team including a Womens team, Men’s Cat 5′s and a Cat 3 team.

Both Ken and Carlos are well on the way to being fully recovered from their crashes late in the season last year with Carlos displaying his usual attacking style repeatedly on the ride yesterday and Ken looking at doing a 1/2-Iron Man mid year!

Wish us luck and keep the rubber side down.

Early Bird Patterson RR

By Rod Rozman, Body Concepts Team

Race: Early Bird Patterson RR Date: 1/22/2011

Category/Field Size: 45+ Cat5, approx. 35 riders

Team Mates: Al, Felix, Rod

Weather/Course Description: Sunny, 45-55F, light easterly winds. Road was wet in a few spots. Reports of ice and cows in the road earlier in the day. We saw neither. Few rocks. Road in pretty good shape (few small potholes).

Race Plan: Attack at mile ~20 when the road pitches up to break up the pack to a small group of riders if possible, then work with whoever is remaining until the finish… and get 1, 2, 3 places. Well, that was the plan…

Race Results: The entire pack stayed mostly together from the start, with the Taleo and Folsom Revolutions riders staying at the front for most of the 1st 10-12 miles. Al and Felix took some pulls at the front between 12-15 miles into the race. Rod was comfortable being lazy/patient riding in the 1st 1/3 of the pack up until this point. When the road turned up at about mile 20, Al and Rod got on the front. The front pack broke up into a 3(?) riders, with Al and Rod going first together at the turnaround. From this point until mile ~30, Al and Rod worked together with 1 other rider… with a pack of 3 other riders bearing down on us from behind. At about mile 30, we had a pack of 6 riders. Three of them did not do any work at the front for the next 10 miles. There were a few encouraging words for them to help do some work. 1st mistake on our part: we should have forced them to the front by slowing down. Second mistake: from mile 38 to ~41, Al and Rod did too much of the work. When we passed the `final 1k’ sign, Al and I both knew the other 4 riders were ready to jump us… and they did. We did a nice lead-out for them…. mistake #3. Probably too much excitement as the finish was approaching. Rod got 5th, and Al got 6th. It was still a lot of fun.

Lessons:

1. We should have forced riders staying at the rear of the pack to the front by slowing down up front.

2. Being patient in the field until the right time works really well.

3. Be even more patient at the finish. Don’t give nice lead-outs to a competitor. Don’t let `finish line excitement’ cloud good judgment.

BC Race Team Skills Clinic #3

This last Saturday was our 3rd team skills clinic with the topic of the day on “attacking, blocking, bridging and leadout trains”.

New members to the team who came early were presented with a discussion on what happens leading up to and on event day including a “packing list”

The ride section of the day went very well with the cat 5′s and women’s team giving the cat 4′s from last year a run for their money. I love these early season clinics for the coppery taste in the back of the throat after the sprint finishes… Everyone stayed upright and have at least a starting point to start racing from. Next clinic is February 5th and we will be concentrating on leadout trains with VSP Global/Nike Vision sponsors out filming the action…hope you can join us for some live action.
