Team CLIF Bar Weekend Results Round Up

Wow, what a weekend for Team CLIF.  Four of us desk jockeys who work to keep our athletes fueled traveled to the Sierras for the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run.  We got to chat with our athletes and some of ultra running's best known names at a dinner co-hosted by our friends at Montrail the night before.  We also attempted to make the smokiest camp fire ever and enjoyed some time sleeping outside.

Team CLIF Bar Free Sport MEGA Summer Update

Following some solid time in the tropics a few weeks back and some meetings last week, I have finally come up for air and some fresh updates in the world of Team CLIF Bar’s FreeSports roster. A LOT, and I mean A LOT,  has gone down in the past month and much of it made the news the moment it happened.

I’m sure that many of you have seen some of what’s included here, but there’s no way that you could possibly be hip to it all.  There’s a ton in the mix here, so take your time with a

Clif Bar donates 75 Garmin- Cervélo posters to NICA

Last fall we worked with illustrator Steve Thomas (www.stevethomasart.com) to create a series of retro cycling prints featuring Team CLIF Bar athletes to be displayed at our Interbike booth.  The prints were so successful that we produced a limited-edition run of each, including a 2011 Paris-Roubaix commemorative poster featuring Garmin-Cervélo rider (and race winner) Johan Van Summeren.  We recently handed over 75 of these posters to the National Interscholastic Cycling Association

Pro Cycling Comes Back To Colorado!

The USA Pro Cycling Challenge is finally under way!  Mark Johnson writes in to give us a feel for the atmosphere at Colorado’s first international bike race in over two decades…

It’s been way too long since European level pro bike racing has been in Colorado. 23 years to be exact.

That’s when the Coors Classic last blessed Colorado’s nose-bleed height roads with the likes of Greg LeMond, who won it in 1985, and Bernard Hinault, who took the title the following year. Indomitable Frenchwoman Jeannie Longo won the women’s race three times.

Well, the best in the world are back, including the top three from this year’s Tour de France, Cadel Evans and brothers Andy and Franck Schleck. Along with a stacked Garmin-Cervélo team, they are here for the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

Tour de France Evacuation

After watching all the fabulous racing through the marvelous mountains of the Tour de France - and seeing all those wild, enthusiastic fans who line the roads as the riders go by - Mark Johnson checks in to give us a glimpse of the aftermath of a mountain stage.  
The TdF racers rip down the descents at blistering speeds.  The fans in their vehicles… not so much.
