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

High School Mountain Bike League Looks East to Expand

10 years ago, all Berkeley High math teacher Matt Fritzinger was hoping to do was start a road cycling club for interested students.  By 2010, what started with that simple mission had turned into The National Interscholastic Cycling Association, with 6 leagues stretching from California to Minnesota.  With those leagues now successfully in place, NICA is looking east to turn competitive high school mountain biking into a nationwide phenomenon.

 
 
 
Starting July 4th, Fritzinger, now the league’s Executive Director, will be joined by Development Director, Ben Capron, for a 6-day whirlwind tour of the East Coast with the hopes of gaining foundational support for creating new leagues in the region.  The ultimate goal is to offer mountain biking as a sport in high schools coast to coast by 2020.
