It's Sasquatch Season! 2017 First Leader Board Update!

Hey Everyone!
Sorry for the delay in posting this, that marathon last Sunday took it out of me. Every time I run a marathon I realize my training was only really adequate for running a half marathon. I guess I'll have to pretend Grandma's is a 50 miler.

There were two fantastic events last week, the Stower Half Marathon and the Eau Claire Full and Half. All Sasquatchers who participated in these events received 5 bonus points. I've tried to include everyone on the sheet, but if I missed you, please send an email to: bj@cyclovaxc.com and I'll get you your points. I mainly just included people who contacted me about shirts, usually a bunch of extra people show up on the first race so I can record your bonus points at that time.

Currently we have only points for the shirt and bonus points, so the leader board is a big tie. This will sort itself out on May 27th at our first Cyclova Sasquatch Race. For now, here's the list:
Men

Women

Again, see y'all on May 27th! 

Also, if you're looking for something to do this weekend, check out the Grantsburg Adventure Triathlon on Saturday, May 13th. This event isn't for Sasquatch points, but it's a fun event and there will be a lot of Cyclova athletes participating. 

Don't hesitate to send corrections to the point totals to: bj@cyclovaxc.com. Thanks!

The New Cyclova Kits are In!

Hey Everyone!
Exciting news! If you ordered a new Cyclova "Gravel Green" kit they have arrived at the store. They look great, and they fit in well with all the other clothing we have offered. It's kind of nice that the kits arrived on a Wednesday so you can all come down and do the sprint ride in your new kit!

In addition to the pre-orders, there are some extra items available for sale so it's not too late to get a kit if you missed out on reserving one during pre-order! I also expect to be putting in another order shortly, so let me know if you want one of these kits (bj@cyclovaxc.com)!

Cheers!

2018 American Birkebeiner Registration NOW OPEN!

Hey Everyone!

Here's our annual reminder that the American Birkebeiner has just opened up registration. 


Sadly, we have to put up with several months of above freezing weather before we can enjoy the perpetual darkness, cutting wind, eternal snow, and -50 temps of another beautiful Wisconsin Winter.

If you have even the smallest inclination to ski the Birkie, register now because this event fills up fast! Think snow :)
