WOLFPACK CRIT: SAMSON PHOTOS


It was a long summer day yesterday and perfect conditions for Wolfpack Hustle's Civic Center Criterium. The racing was fast, the finishes were amazing and the entire event was a lot of fun. My buddy Sammy just sent me his photos of the races which capture the excitement of the day perfectly.

See the rest of the set HERE.

ENGINE11 IN KOREA


Good stuff from Engine11 documenting the team’s trip to Korea back in April. Shot for shot, this video pretty much encapsulates everything that Ride The Black line is all about.
R.I.P. JACKIE PRICE DUNN 

I am truly heartbroken to hear of the loss of local So Cal racer Jackie Price-Dunn who succumbed to injuries after a crash at San Diego Velodrome.  Though I did not know her personally, this intense weight on my chest that I’m feeling is identical to what I felt when I heard about Cono's passing less than a month ago.  My deepest condolences go out to Jackie's family, friends and everyone whose lives she touched.

Please find it in your heart to contribute to the Jackie Price-Dunn Memorial Fund.

SUMMER RACE SERIES: TEAM DREAM TEAM TRIAL TIME 

After much deliberation over all the details, Team Dream Bicycling Team and Ride The Black Line have settled on the perfect event to open the 2013 Summer Race Series at Encino Velodrome.

The Team Dream Team Trial Time will be a night full of Team Pursuits, Team Sprints and a dash of Flying 200’s.  This will be an important event in the Summer Race Series because it presents a big opportunity for teams to grab some early points for the Summer Race Series Team Trophy.  Take a look at what the each time trial event will be worth on June 26th:

TIME TRIALS (individual and team time trials)
1st place - 10 points per rider
2nd place - 7 points per rider
3rd place - 5 points per rider
4th place - 3 points per rider
5th place - 2 points per rider
6th place - 1 point per rider

What does that mean?  That means a four-man Team Pursuit all riding for the same club can grab up to 40 points (44 points with the participation points) for their team and get started with a good lead in the SRS Team Trophy standings.  On top of that, since this is the only SRS2013 event in which women race separately and all female racers score DOUBLE POINTS, a three-woman Team Pursuit racing for the same club can pocket up to 60 points (66 including participation points) to get their team started!  How awesome is that?

To sweeten the deal, TDBT and RTBL are putting together some great prizes for the fastest riders of the night just to encourage everyone to pedal that much harder.

Predator Cycling has won the SRS Team Trophy for two consecutive years.  So start putting your DREAM TEAM together for a night of Team Time Trials and remember that any victorious Team Pursuit or Team Sprint composed of riders in different clubs will have the points distributed accordingly.  So choose your teammates wisely and get those points!
