This weekend is bringing some great racing action for BJL Coaching Athletes!
Kathryn C. and Pete S. will be up at The Tour of the Battenkill, testing their skills and endurance over the 68 miles of dirt and paved roads on Saturday. Kathryn will be bringing her cyclocross racing experience along with some amazing fitness to tame the unpaved roads and climbs, and Pete brings his amazing tenacity and attitude while using this as a training race.
Kevin E. is racing against the clock at the Allamuchy Time Trial, stop two of the NJ Time Trial Cup, also on Saturday. Kevin finished just outside the top 10 at Sand Hook, as is well prepared to conquer this fun out-and-backish course.
Chris C., Brook W., Morgan P., Greg S., Stef M., and Rod M. will also be at Allamuchy, but on Sunday racing mountain bikes at the kickoff event of the Hudson to Highlands Regional Mountain Bike Race Series. The good folks at MTBNJ.com have laid out a fun loop for their cross country racing pleasure.
I will be racing the South Jersey Law Enforcement Challenge with my good pal and teammate Keith L.. This event, which was developed to raise money and awareness in memory of Police Officers killed in the line of duty, takes place in Medford, NJ. Teams of two must stay together throughout the entire event while they trail run, mountain bike, canoe, then finish up with another trail run.
Good luck to all! Leave it all out there and have fun!
