Fuzz and Bob Grab Podiums In So Cal Cross.

World Famous Vegas Bob and Backbone Fuzz spent the weekend racing cyclocross, just up the road from Fuzzy's crib in Glendale. Fuzz rode his bike TO the race, of course. After a Saturday of leg death, Bob landed inside the top 10 (8th). He would return Sunday to race again, and feeling saucy, pounded his way to a silver medal finish. GO BOB! It HAD to be the sideburns.

Fuzz had tons of family and friends out on his home turf, and they landed post-race at our amazing team sponsor, BREWYARD BEER COMPANY for post-race shenanigans. Ara also would have a stellar weekend, landing in third place Sunday.

Brewyard Beer Company was on flizeek, pouring some tasty brews (like their "Black Sunrise" ) and offering up Takuma's Burgers Food Truck vittles.

Great job, gents!

ALSO, team shirts should be shipping next week!

The icy death approacheth here in Ohio.

Wow! November has fallen upon us, and is almost over already.
I am sitting at my desk, eating lunch, and it is "Spirit Day." They created it so people can wear their BUCKEYE football shirts, but I think my priorities are awe bit different.

Spirit day at work.

With November coming to a close, the riding here will come down to frozen farm roads and icy single track. Back out west, Ara, Randy and Bob are closing down the cyclocross season and the Fontana Winter XC racing season. Bob has also signed up for a few unbelievable Epic races/rides, and I can't wait to see the pics form them.

Randy Rush is back, and having some fun in Fontucky racing XC.

Beer from Brewyard Brewing Company in Glendale lubricates this team.

Fuzzy sharing the Brewyard love!

Podiums in the Killer B's are not easy.

Josh and Jeff are still out rolling through Greenbo State Park in Kentucky, dragging several of the Ashland Cycling Enthusiast members with them.

Josh, Josh and Tookie are enjoying the fall colors in Greenbo, KY.

Mark and Matt Thome have been riding, and racing cross in Montana as well, which has been fun to see. The mountains there look like a playground for a mountain bike.
Mark Thome's fat bike is ready for the Montana winter.

Phil at PB Creative has been taking some unreal photos of the gang this year. Ara has been staying on the podium in the enormous "Killer B" category for cross. Josh Qualls received his sweet new BKOOL indoor trainer, and will be smashing people on the web-based races via BKOOL. Those trainers are amazing!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving, and have a Brewyard beer!

November Nonsense.

Wow, is it REALLY November already?

   It is my favorite time to ride, here in the central part of the country. It is cooler, and the mosquitos are fewer and farther between. The roads are all but empty, with few cyclists left to brave such elements.
I am one of those few. having saved half of my vacation days to supplement weekends, I am ready to get riding.

   Josh Qualls has partnered up with Brian Orloff (formerly of SIGMA SPORT USA) to R&D and help promote the amazing new BKOOL indoor trainer products. Visit for the product line. Josh will be competing tonight in their online race, complete with prizes. Mr. Qualls has had to take some time off this year, but Jeff Williams has been plying him with tasty trails and cold brews to get him back on track.

   Bob, Randy and Ara have been up to, well, everything really. Travel has taken up lots of their time, with cyclocross, Fontana XC, and various road trips to places like Mammoth for extraordinary rides and races. Cyrille Hanson will be joining this season on the race course, and with any luck, that will mean Bob will make it to events ON TIME! *kidding.

   With temps dropping in Montana, Mark and Matt Thome have been busy riding, hiking, racing cyclocross and raising Mini-Thome. Mark stopped by CBUS for a few days to hang out during the motorcycle show, and it was great to see him.

   Cheers to everyone, and the final draft for team shirts should be done by Friday. Thanks to everyone for all the pics, updates, and fun!
