Elkhart Time Trial #5 Results

Another year of racing in Elkhart is in the books and we couldn’t have had a better night to close out the season. Thanks to all the riders for coming out. Thanks to the Zealous family for volunteering their time and skills (yes, it’s a skill to hold up 80 riders by their saddle in less than an hour!). Thanks to Bruce for his dependable officiating. Thanks to Sheriff Mike for helping us keep the course safe. Thanks to Kyle’s Bikes for donating some great door prizes and awards. And of course, thanks to Rachelle Little of Zealous Consulting sponsoring our series.

We fully plan to be back in April 2012 and look forward to seeing everybody then. Stay tuned to Zealousracing.com for more info as the snow melts next spring.

Iowa Cup Standing pb Zealous Consulting – Round #7

The last race in the 2011 Iowa Cup Series is upon us, the East Village Criterium is just days away.  There are several compelling battles that will come down to the wire.  The Iowa Cup stat crew will be hard at work to compile the results and crown the winners on race day.

Not only did last weekend’s road race in West Branch determine the Iowa State Road Race champions, it was the penultimate race in the 2011 Iowa Cup.

In the Men’s elite division, the top 3 in the series found themselves ahead of the field battling it out for the top 3 state medals as well as the Iowa Cup points.  Mattias Perrett took the win, ahead of Jared Osterloh, and Brian West.  Mattias extended his lead to 5 points over Brian and 7 points over Jared.  It will be hard, but not impossible, for Brian or Jared to overtake Mattias’ lead in the final race.  Mattias holds the tie-breaker over both Brian and Jared, so, for Brian to win the series, he needs a top 2 finish at East Village with Mattias earning at least 6 points less.  For Jared to win, he has to take the win at East Village and Mattias has to finish 6th or lower.  Longshots, for sure, but this is the first year we’ve had 3 riders in contention on the final day.

Mattias’ team, ICCC regained the lead from World of Bikes/Bikes2You by a slim 4 points.  This was a 3 team race heading into the State RR, but now it will be a 2 team race, unless American Equity or Zealous Racing have a great day and stack the top of the results.  For ICCC and WoB/B2U every placing will be important for the team battle.

In the Men’s 3s, only Vance Fletcher and Dan Galles have the points necessary to overtake Kevin Severs with wins on Saturday.

Mike Reagan holds a 5 point lead over Ryan Pesch in the Men’s 4s going into the final day.

The Women’s Elite and Elite Team were decided long ago, Cassandra Kessler and her team ICCC have blown away the field and will earn decisive victories at East Village.

Magen Kelly pulled away from the competition in the Women’s 4s to hold a 20 point lead and sure victory.

In the Masters 40+, Shawn Loomis looks sure to take the win, only losing if Jim Cochran wins and Shawn is unable to score a point.

Chris Eastburn and Randy Jones have battled all season in the Masters 50+ with Chris holding a 1 point lead on Randy heading into the finale.  Chris also holds the tie-breaker over Randy.


We will be onsite all day Saturday tabulating results and trying to get the morning races awarded after the results are final. While most of the afternoon races will be awarded following the end of the Category 1/2 race at the end of the day. Like always we are trying to improve on the previous years awards, and hope that everyone is excited about this years as we are.

Iowa Cup Standing pb Zealous Consulting – Round #6

The 2011 Iowa Cup presented by Zealous Consulting resumes this weekend at the Iowa State Road Race Championships.  2 races remain to decide the champions.

The Clear Lake Criterium and Road Race provided a great opportunity for racers to seperate themselves or pull themselves into contention in their respective categories.

The Men’s Elite Team competition remains tight with World of Bikes/Bikes2You holding a 1 point lead over Iowa City Cycling Club and American Equity Racing.  Previous leader, Zealous Racing, falls to 4th place, 12 points down.

Brian West used his State Criterium Championship ride on Saturday to take the 10 points for his first place Iowan finish and take a short-lived lead in the Men’s Elite Individual competition.  Mattias Perret was able to tie up the standings in the RR with his finish as 6th Iowan.  Jared Osterloh remains in contention 4 points behind.

Other notable happenings: Shawn Loomis seized the lead in the 40+ category, while Mike Reagan put 3 points between he and 2nd place Ryan Pesch in the Men’s 4 category.  Megan Kelly added some breathing room between her and Tricia Brown in the Women’s 4s.
