    Hey there, NorCal Cyclists. It’s me, Hernandito. Remember me? I’m that “guest blogger” who talked all sorts of big game about the plethora of blogging that he had in store for the 2010 season, then disappeared from the face of the interweb. Yes, I’ve failed the greater blog-reading community, but it’s not for lack...

    January Crit Racing

    What do I, Hernandito, fear more than anything in the world? Is it a slow, painful death? No. Is it a cloned Tyrannosaurus Rex? No, because they can’t see you if you don’t move. Is it spiders? Nope. Women? Close…but not quite. In fact, what I fear the most is being scolded by Michael...

    ‘Tis the Season to be Roadie

    Welcome back, roadie nerds! It’s been a long winter here in Hernandito-land, but I’ve emerged from my seemingly interminable hibernation with a renewed vigor for the blogging lifestyle…and a notable lack of fitness. I was reminded of the cyclical nature of the cycling seasons by fellow blogger seabiscuit’s most recent post. Each year, summertime...

    Beware of Blog

    Good evening, everyone. It’s Hernandito again, with a hankering to write but no topical content; you, my friend, are the victim of my lack of direction. Sure, I suppose I could write about the Henleyville RR and the Chico Criterium, but this is NorCal Cycling News…and those races happened quite some time ago. Instead,...

    It ain’t over just yet

    Ladies and gentlemen, the Giro has come and gone, and another riveting edition of the fabled Cal Cup has come to a close; Hellyer has so fabulously covered the weekly developments that I, Hernandito, have scarcely managed to slip a word in edgewise. The end of the 2009 road season is swiftly approaching, and...

    It’s been a while

    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. It’s Hernandito, and I’ve missed you all. Before we begin, I should mention that I’ve been usurped. It seems Mr. Hernandez has hired some fantastic new writers, which (I assume) means that my style and content lacks a certain flair, or that I’m not writing often enough. It’s probably...

    Odds and Ends

    Good evening y’all. It’s Hernandito again, trying to haphazardly assemble another rambling internet publication for my own amusement. Thank goodness some of the other blogwriters have updated this website over the past week or so, as I have been remiss; for this I apologize. In particular, I would like to beg the forgiveness of...

    San Rafael Twilight Crit

    Hey there NorCal, it’s Hernandito. After all of the recent angst regarding the loss of our friend Chris Hipp, I think it’s time for us to distract ourselves with the usual bike-racing idiocy. Let’s begin with a brief foray into European cycling. Jens Voigt has recently become my favorite bike racer (sorry Mike Hernandez,...
