• Bicycles Plus Winter Criterium

    After one of the driest winters to date for California, Mother Nature decided to end our drought with an epic weekend of torrential rain and wind. Despite the damp conditions, the races carried on, including the Bicycles Plus Winter Criterium held in Folsom, California. Athletes raced their hearts out despite being soaked to the bone and riding with wet chamois. The slippery roads caused several crashes that were softened due to smooth slides over the low friction, wet pavement. While the fields were smaller than expected, racers still braved the weather to test their fitness at this early season opener.

    Official results can be found at USA Cycling.

    Alex Chiu is a local photographer in the NorCal cycling scene. After dabbling a bit in racing (and not doing very good at it), he decided to pick up a camera and take pictures at the races to still be a part of the action. Chances are if the race is within a 2 hour driving window from Sacramento, you'll find him somewhere along the course. You may find his photos at http://acaurora.smugmug.com
