usat duathlon long course natl’s

Just registered for Black Water Duathlon, just over a week away..

10k run, 70k bike, 10k run
Blackwater Duathlon is the USAT National Long Course Championship

Should be pretty awesome!

shout out to WoolSports! only the finest of merino sheeps get to donate their wools to become high quality apparel fabricated in the good ol’ US of A .. just rode in a little rain storm last night in one of my wool jerseys and I am routinely amazed at the properties of wool.. look it up.. it’s not just for old time hockey jerseys.. WS has some top secret prototypes in the works.. very exciting stuff!

Randy Hadzor – Team USA

It’s official…

(source)

Randy Hadzor will be representing Team USA at Nancy France, 2012.

Here is the official email from USAT:

The 2012 ITU Standard Course Duathlon World Championships will take place September 22-23, 2012, in Nancy, France.

Nancy France is just 20 or so days after the Powerman World Championship in Zofingen Switzerland, perfect timing for fitness and transportation potentially. Giving ample time to get acclimated and being that Zofingen is the longer distance, the training taper will be spot on.

Now it’s just a matter of financing the trip, WoolSports, Mello Velo Bicycles & Café, M&J Coaching continue to be invaluable supporters making training and racing at the current level possible. Randy could still however benefit from local personal and corporate support.

Help Randy get to Europe!

(pronounced yerp)

We’ve set up a donation page with the funds going to race fees and travel expenses helping Randy get to and compete in these World Championships.

Randy is open to advertising interests and other various arrangements ie; get your company logo on the uniform worn in Switzerland or more  locally at another race; also possible is advertising right here on btbathletics.com!

In France he’ll have to wear the Team USA uniform which will be available to Team USA Nancy athletes sometime this summer, but other races are open for discussion, with the new Variety Studios silk screen capabilities virtually anything is possible!

Thanks to all for your support! It’s an exciting opportunity!

2012 is going to be a big year for BTB !

The day after thanksgiving…
Curtin and Hadzor Fine Home Builders present: GOBBLECROSS

a citizens (unsanctioned) cyclocross race…

When you awaken from your L-Tryptophan slumber what better way to start fresh with all your thanks  than with an good ol’ honest cross race.

wild, genuine; just you your velo, the trails, and the occasional obstacle.

  • 10am start time: all inclusive citizens open race to go off
    categories will be created if field size deems necessary
  • the trails of 2665 O’Connell Road, Lafayette NY
  • 8am course set up/fine tuning/raking/pre riding
  • 8:30ish-9:30 registration
  • email gobblecross@btbathletics.com to reserve your spot… or say so on facebook


so get your warm up in at walmart in the morning and come ready to ride. turkey sandwiches will fit nicely in back jersey pockets i’d assume..

gobblecross is family friendly; as a big black newfoundland makes a great babysitter, and chickens are entertaining for kids of all ages.. at least 6-60+
