Glen Alps HC
Everyone stayed dry tonight at the Glen Alps Hill Climb. Turnout was low, but times were fast! Results for the race and the series standings are posted on the race results page.
Tour of Anchorage
The Tour of Anchorage wrapped up on Sunday with the Bodenburg Loop Road Race. We had a great turnout this year. Results for all stages and the GC are available on the race results page. Congrats to our GC winners, stage winners, and everyone that came out and pushed themselves! We still have 9 more races this season, so don't hang your bikes up yet. Registration for individual stages is now open. We'd really prefer that folks do all stages if possible as it's more fair for other racers that are doing all stages, but we are providing the option for those that simply can't make it to every stage. The race bible is also available here.
Weekday World Championships
We had excellent turnout in the Kulis C and A races. Where are all of the B racers?? Results are posted.

Independence Day Crit Canceled
We ran out of time for planning this one, so don't plan on attending this one. Head down to Seward and watch the crazies do their 5k instead.
Hatcher Pass HC
Wow! The weather was beautiful up at Hatcher Pass today. We had a pretty small turnout, but the racing was excellent. The gate to the mine was closed, so we finished a mile short of the full climb. Results are posted for the HC as well as the series standings.

Another great night of racing in beautiful weather is in the books. We have two mandatory upgrades: Norm Sharp will move from the C race to the B race; Jens Beck will move from the B race to the A race. Results are posted.

The TT is in the books. See the results page for stage results and omnium standings.
The crit was interesting. Minutes before we started the first race, we were told we couldn't use a portion of the start/finish straight due to a presidential landing (we had been cleared to use the road yesterday). We made a quick course change and raced a new crit route for all fields. We were treated to a fly-over of Air Force One and a lot of security details. Results are available on the results page. The Ruff Road Circuit Race is complete. We had awesome weather and practically zero traffic on smooth roads. There were a few bears sighted, but they didn't interfere with our racers. Results for the stage and the Omnium overall are posted on the results page.
Kulis Criterium Series
We had some great racing at Kulis with some strong headwinds on the finish straight. There was no A race because no one registered to race except John and Joey - what's up with that?? We don't bite. Results are available here.
Clarks Rd HC
We had a bit of wind to deal with on today's hill climb up Clarks Rd. Results are available here (series standings here).
While the turnout was small, we had awesome conditions at today's 10 mile Portage TT. The sun was out, and the light wind was reversed from it's normal direction, so racers got to enjoy a tail wind on the second half of the course. Results are available here. Thanks to those that made it out.
Tuesday 5/10: Moose Run TT #2
We had some special spectators at the Moose Run TT. Several racers were turned around or delayed by a bear on course. Results are available here.

The first race is in the books. It was a little damp, but 35 people made it out to race in the 3 separate races. Results are available here.

Hill Climb and Criterium Race Series
For 2016, we're going to change things up a bit. There will still be a hill climb and crit series, but there will be more races in the series. The series will also be broken up so that you don't miss out on the whole season's series if you miss a couple of races. Check out the race calendar to see what we have planned.
Mandatory Upgrade Policy
To ensure fair competition in the Novice and Intermediate categories, we are implementing a mandatory upgrade policy for 2014. It's simple: Novice or Intermediate racers who win a stage race overall general classification or five individual races in a season are required to upgrade to the next division up.
