The long and winding road

Dear Frites,
As some of you may know we recently have had a number of team members leave to go race for other teams. In some cases it was a financial decision as their new team will be paying all entry fees and providing their clothing, and in some cases it was simply a personal decision.

Based on the above, coupled with the lack of support received from team members at our team sponsored race, ZombieCross we have elected to not register the team this season with USAC/BRAC.

The responsibilities of running this team has just become too burdensome and quite frankly is no longer fun. This, combined with family commitments, heath issues, etc... has lead us to this decision. With this being said, FVMC is not going away, and many of us plan to ride/race in the FMVC kits this season, however we will have to race unattached and incur an additional fee on race days.

This was not a kneejerk decision and has been discussed over the past few months by the original founding members of the team. We will continue to discuss the direction/future of FMVC and are open to any comments and or questions that you may have.

Thank you for your understanding. If you would like to discuss, feel free to contact one of us below:

Ron Long, aka Dash
Brian Graves, aka Big Country
Rich Visscher, aka Pigeon
Pete Lopez, aka Coco
Scott Bates, aka Buzzsaw

Course Map 1.0

The course is ready for pre-ride. If you feel surprised on race day (i.e. "toe spikes, where are my toe spikes")...well, that's on you.

After getting input from many people we think we put together a great course. There may be subtle changes before race day but this is the gist of it. Where the words "options" appear on the map, we are still deciding. Mowers will be out later this week. Thanks Rich, Peder, Brian F., David H, Scott, Cory and the Happy Coffee boys for your help and input.

Have fun.

It's official, we're putting on a cross race.

Highlights of the highlights:

  • We're putting this on, nuff said. Added bonus? The other fun CX team is helping - Happy Coffee / Salvagetti CX. EDIT: Alpha and All-City CX are now on board.
  • It's the last "long day" schedule of the season. So get in one last long gut busting race before the short season starts.
  • Fun. Prizes for best costumes, and other great ideas, we're full of 'em.
  • The course will be hard. Sand, off-camber, dirt, grass and run-ups... (Art Schwadron)
