So far this season, Once Again Racers represented with more than 30 different racers in over 40 different events across 5 different states and 2 different countries (see podium results below).
The team was extremely well represented on our home turf at The Rock Race Weekend sponsored by American Rock Salt and hosted by the LCC as we saw several pin-striped riders on the podium as well as many others who put up strong finishes in every field over the two days of racing.
With many highlights to celebrate, the best team result came from Jake Castor in the Men’s 1-3 Road Race in Avon where he joined Dylan Pudiak (Towpath) and Matt Brophy (Nalgene) in an early break that last nearly 70 miles and held for a podium finish in an inspiring effort from all three racers.
Over the last two months, we also saw Rachel Andrews continue to tear up the local women’s races with top finishes in Buffalo and Binghamton, a National Championship podium from Jen Reschke at USAT AG Nationals, and a win from Tim Paul at Binghamton Circuit.
Although road and triathlon racing will slow down, the team is still full throttle with a packed calendar over the next couple months.
On 9/9 and 9/10 we look to start cross racing at the UCI Rochester CX, an event that the LCC is proud to be the sponsoring club.
The following weekend, Once Again will break out the road bikes for one final race at Smethport Wheel Around the Hub as well as one final bike road ride in the Bicycling Fall Classic sponsored by Once Again Nut Butter on Oct 1.
The team also plans to hit several other local cross events throughout the fall, including the Full Moon series races at Grand Island, Webster, Cobbs Hill and Parma all of which are also permitted under the LCC.
