Successful Trifecta Series over for 2015!!

The weekend of 7-8 March saw 254 riders from numerous states and two countries compete in the annual Trifecta Race, promoted by ZiaVelo Cycling and made possible only because of our tremendous sponsors and volunteers!

Commencing with a time trial on Saturday morning, in our new series format, and continuing that afternoon with the criterium races, then continuing on Sunday with the Hillsboro Classic Road Race, the action was fast and furious.

Thanks to all that attended and supported this event.

ZiaVelo Sees Early Season Action at the Valley of the Sun!

Representing 5 different categories with 15 racers, ZiaVelo cyclists took to the streets of the greater Phoenix area at the 28th annual Valley of the Sun Stage Race this past weekend.

With 4 racers in the Cat 2’s (Chris Schlabach, Kyle Martinez, Ryan Szabo, and Marcel Berger) , 5 in the Master Men 45+ (Jerry Garcia, Al Senft, Dave Rutledge, Tim Ketelaar, and Shane Cunico), 2 Women in the Cat 3 field (Carol Flinchbaugh and Cat Stailey), 2 Men in the Cat 4 field (Brian and Kevin Robinson), 1 in the Womens Cat 4 field (Lynn Robinson), and 1 racer in the Junior 17-18 field (Greg Albright), racing was always on-going throughout all three days of the event.

The VoS is one of the most highly contested races of the early part of the Road season and gave all the ZVC racers a chance to get in some quality miles, against competition that is already in the prime of their seasons.

Top finishers for ZVC were Marcel Berger (11th in the CAT 2’s), Jerry Garcia (10th in the Masters 45+), Brian Robinson (5th in the CAT 4’s), Cat Stailey (18th in the Women’s CAT 3’s, Lynn Robinson (15th Women’s CAT 4’s), and Greg Albright (66th in an International level JR 17-18 field).
