The Mike’s roster could dominate locally and will ideally start producing some NRC/NCC wins under the tutelage of Kilun and...

    by  • December 26, 2012 • norcal scene, opinionate, teams

    I tend to get inexplicably pissed when people (read social media/PR hacks) don’t send me their rosters when they send them to the “real press.”  It totally feeds a small man’s inferiority complex I have going.  It’s gotten me all annoyed, antsy, and belligerent, which should lead to amusing ramblings for you all. Mike’s Bikes:...

    Roster: Folsom Bike/VW/Raleys Team

    by  • December 22, 2012 • teams

    Since these fellas listed their 35+ team first I’m assuming this is a Masters powerhouse.  Lyman, Van Sickle, Walker, Snovel…. that’s a pretty decent crowd.  You all are gonna have to slather on the “Ben Gay” and keep an eye on this 35+ team.  Folsom Bikes women’s roster should be out in a few days too…...
