Iowa State CX Wrap Up

The Iowa Cyclocross State Championships are wrapped up for the year, and we had a record turn out in racers. We surpassed every state championship turnout since Zealous started hosting it, and had riders from Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, and Kentucky.

I would like to thank our sponsors for all that they did to help us to get the event off the ground. Whether that help came in the form of schwag, materials, assistance, or financial it all makes the world of difference.

Zealous Racing Weekend Wrap Up

I have lots of people to thank for this weekend, but most importantly is my wife Sheri. Without her, none of this would have happened. I would also really like to thank all the people that traveled from all over the midwest to come race with us for the last two days and made the weekend a success for us. The crowds at Water Works and on Breeder’s hill were spectacular, and the 20 juniors we had at Water Works was well worth the time and effort the team put in to make the event happen.

Next round of the Iowa Cup is happening over on the east side of the state over the Memorial Day weekend. Thanks again for coming out!

Elkhart Time Trial #4 Results

Sixty-seven riders came out yesterday for a beautiful July evening of time trialing outside Elkhart.  A decent southern breeze didn’t slow down times much as many took advantage of their summer fitness to put up PRs.  The results file and an updated points standings file can be accessed below. And many of the categories are still wide open.  We are working on a special event and awards following the last round of the series on August 11th.  More details will be announced soon.

Thanks again for everybody who helps put this race on and thanks to the riders for coming out.  See you next month!

Elkhart TimeTrial #2 Results

The rain held off for us and we ended up with a beautiful, warm May evening for TT-ing out at Elkhart.  Over 90 riders tackled the 12km course and many PRs and benchmarks for the season were set.  All in all the average time this month was 4 minutes (or 17%) faster than our blustery kickoff race in April.  It was also a very close race at the top of the Mens Open with Derek Cassady setting the pace with a 16:19, just two seconds ahead of JJ Bailey and six seconds ahead of Gerald Johnson.  A rockin’ four tandems also showed up to race with the Martin’s nearly breaking 17 minutes.  And Julie Zierke-Clarke put down the fastest women’s time of the night at 18:29.

Thanks to all for coming out and a huge thanks to Rachelle Little from Zealous Consulting and all our volunteers who help put on the race.  Thank them next time you’re clipping in at the start line.

Category points will be posted next week. Thanks to all who came out.

Results are available for download 2011 Elkhart TT Series Results – Race 2 and at USAC.

Elkhart TimeTrial #1 Results

A brutally windy Elkhart TT is in the books. We can get every kind of weather in April and it just happened to be an 30 mph crosswind on this particular evening. We had 64 strong finishers cross the line and I am impressed with the toughness I saw out on the road last night. Despite the conditions, I only heard about a few folks finding the ditch, and no one seriously injured. Thanks for a successful and safe start to the TT season. Below are preliminary results. We had no issues with timing last night so they should be accurate but if you think there’s a mistake, please e-mail me and we’ll work to get it corrected. We’ll have series points posted ahead of the next race and I have a few fun things I’m working on for this season… more info to come.


Thanks again to the volunteers from Zealous Racing, our top notch official Bruce Pesch, and everybody who showed up last night.
