YALE!


Yet another super successful weekend for F&M cycling!

This last weekend we traveled up to Connecticut to race at Yale. Saturday morining started off with a 4.3 mile time trial that finished with a 1.5 mile climb. F&M struggled to place with our best result being at 12th place by Rob Burnett in the Men's B race. 

Saturday afternoon the rain came with a vengence dampening our spirits slighty. The Men's D and Intro racers had some bad luck with dropped chains and poor positioning taking them out of contention. 

In the Men's B race Rob Burnett broke away from the pack with 3 others with 7 miles left in the race. The four worked well together and never saw the main pack again. Rob finished a fantastic 2nd place for the teams top result so far this year!

In the Sunday morining Criterium the Men's D's stepped up their game. Despite an unfortunate crash of Dan Rossi half way throught the race they were still able to place Charlie Salzer n great position for the sprint. Charlie was able to sprint for third, his best result of the season! Rob was able to light up the Men's B Criterium with two different breakaways lasting four and two laps respectively and winning one prime. 

F&M finished the weekend ranked 25th out of 50 teams! Great weekend overall, but we are still chasing that win. We are now hungryer than ever!

This coming weekend we will not be racing and we invite everyone to join us on a group ride Saturday afternoon. We will leave from Buchanan Park at 1pm and ride for around 1 and a half hours. Please RSVP. 

Thank you to everyone for your support!
