This Ain’t No ProTour:  Team CLIF Bar Goes To Camp

Warning:  This is long.

Nothing makes competitive cyclists more excited than a preseason team camp, and the guys from Team CLIF Bar got more than they bargained for this past weekend as the squad descended upon Gary Erickson’s guest house tucked into the hills above Napa to kick-off the new season in style.  Thanks, Gary!

  

The first day of camp started casually enough with riders eating a hearty breakfast prepared by team rider Pete Morris, who dialed in the menu weeks ago and

Last Friday, we couldn’t wait until quittin’ time to bring on the proverbial ‘za, so we invited some likely suspects to help us break the workday mold. Turns out, the Team CLIF Bar BMX Athletes were way ahead of us! At their ages (13 – 25 yrs), most of

Bring on the Classics!

Here in the US, the Tour de France is synonymous with professional cycling.  If you’re an American pro or ride for a team based in the United States, your success in the sport will undoubtedly be measured by your performance in the world’s most popular bike race.  Win the Le Tour, and your popularity stateside can transcend the sport.  As much as I love the Grand Tours, though, nothing gets my cycling blood pumping like the beginning of the Spring Classics season.  And, my favorite of

Garmin’s Millar Takes Tour’s 12th Stage!

In what had been an exceedingly difficult Tour de France so far for the Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda team, David Millar staked his claim as one of the more tactically-astute riders in the pro peloton today, winning the 12th and final Alps stage out of a five-rider breakaway group that was out front for most of the day.
