Many ZiaVelo Cyclists have been busy taking to the road and dirt the past few weekends for races all over New Mexico and Colorado. The ZVC colors have shined brightly in all events! The weekend before last, racers participated in the Tour de Los Alamos road race, the Desert Eagle Time Trial, and the Oak Flats mountain bike race. At the Tour de Los Alamos, notable finishes included Kevin Quattlebaum winning Cat 3, Robert Mercer winning Cat 4, Joseph Garcia coming in 4th place in P/1/2, and Zach Taraschi coming in 3rd place in Cat 4. At the Desert Eagle Time Trial, the second race in the series of three, Marcel Berger won the overall, Joseph Garcia came in 2nd, and Al Senft came in 3rd. Kathy Alvarez had her fastest time, winning the overall in women for the day. A few of these racers along with other ZVC racers will be racing the Record Challenge TT race Labor Day weekend. We wish them our best! Taking to the dirt at Oak Flats was Jerry Garcia, winning his age group and coming in 6th place in the overall Cat 1. Al Senft came in 3rd place in the Cat 1 40-49.
This past weekend, ZVC racers participated in the Santa Fe Hill Climb, the last New Mexico road race of the season. A few others traveled to Boulder, CO to participate in the IronMan 70.3 Triathlon. Notable finishes include Amber Zimmerman coming in 2nd place in Cat 5, beating many racers in the other categories at the Santa Fe Hill Climb. At the IronMan70.3, Terry Casey came in a remarkable 14th place in the overall Pro category. Rachael Greuber also had an impressive finish coming in 9th in her age 25-29 age group. Also participating in this event was Ryan Conklin.
