On Saturday, over in Angel Fire, NM, a few ZVC Zia racers, Jerry Garcia, Kevin Quattlebaum, and Tamatha Risner raced the Oso High Mountain Bike XC. As in years past, donations and revenue from the race went straight to the ALS Association (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/”Lou Gehrig’s Disease”). This year was in honor of fellow cycling enthusiast, Doug Schneebeck, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2010, and passed away just this past October. Doug established Oso High Endurance Sports, which has raised more than $405,000 for ALS research. His family was there as honorary guests and to support the event. ZVC is happy to report that Kevin Quattlebaum got 2nd in the Cat 1 40-49 age group and 2nd place overall. Jerry Garcia won his age group and had a strong 4th place overall finish. Tammy won the Cat 1 40-49 age group and 2nd place overall.
On Sunday, in Albuquerque, the first of three races in the 2017 Double Eagle Time Trial Series took place. There were a few ZVC racers out representing. ZVC is proud to report that Zia racer, Marcel Berger was the fastest rider of the day. The next two fastest racers of the day were also Zia racers, Joseph Garcia and Al Senft. Zia racer, Kathy Alvarez, was the second fastest woman of the day. Also out racing and representing ZVC were Velo racers, David Hughes and Amber Zimmerman, both with strong finishes.
