Brady & Mitch Racing the BC Bike Race

Team CLIF Bar riders Brady Kappius & Mitch Hoke are up in beautiful British Columbia racing the BC Bike Race from July 3rd through July 9th.  The TCB duo has been riding well – but they took a wrong turn yesterday that added a few additional miles to their day and hurt their overall time a bit. 

But that’s how the BC Bike Race goes. 

Still three stages to go – so a lot can happen.

The Tour de France Gets Started

We hope you’re enjoying the first week of the Tour de France.

Garmin-Cervélo fans are no doubt thrilled with the team’s success during the first few days of the race. On this end, it’s been a thrilling start to the race.  Watching the guys win the Team Time Trial; then seeing a perfect lead-out help Tyler take the win on Sunday; followed by the remarkable efforts Thor made to hold on to the yellow jersey during Monday’s stage – it’s all amounted to plenty of smiles over here at CB&C.

 
While you’re following the race this week, we thought you might enjoy this piece from Mark Johnson about the Tour de France Kick Off.  As Mark points out, in France the race is so much “more than a sports event, the Tour is a ritual marking the true start of summer and the freedom it represents.”  The start of summer is always good for generating smiles too.
 
Enjoy Mark’s report from the roads of France.

Team CLIF Bar Cycling Races Tulsa Tough

The TCB Cycling squad was out in Tulsa recently, racing the Tulsa Tough.

Ahh, the joys of racing in the stifling Oklahoma heat. Mix in a couple thunder storms, Dave Towle on the mic, enthusiastic crowds, plus a handful of crashes and it makes for three relatively crazy days of bike racing.

Thanks to Tim & Laura for hosting the team and baking Blake a bundt cake for his college graduation celebration. The guys might not know how to spell "bundt" properly, but word on the street is
