So I am back from INTERBIKE and it was a pretty successful trip. Aidan and I met with a bunch of potential sponsors from the 2008 cycling season and plugged the team to a bunch of other companies. Now its a waiting game to see who wants to give us a shot! It appears our CCNS Winter order from Champion System will be on time, a few more weeks and the stuff will be here. We attended the CrossVegas race and the US Crit. Championships while out at the show. I posted a ton of photos of Aidan's NERAC teammates that raced and there are also a bunch of shots of the DURATEC bikes that were displayed at the show. DURATEC is a potential sponsor for next year and as you know they sponsor NERAC. Check the photos out HERE.

Also, don't forget the 1st team meeting is this Monday, October 1st at 6:30pm at the CCNS Suite. Team meetings will be the 1st of the month at 6:30 from here on out. Be there!

Late September News

Next week Coach Aidan Charles and team rider Anthony Vecca will be out in Las Vegas for INTERBIKE. Meetings have been set up with potential sponsors for the 2008 racing season and several more are going to be scheduled while they are at the show. The guys will also be attending the CrossVegas national caliber cyclocross race, the US Crit Championships at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, and several other events. Check back for photos and updates in early October.

The last road race of the season for most of the guys will be on Columbus Day, October 8th, at the Jamestown Classic. Come out and cheer on the team as we cap a good racing season off! The cyclocross season is beginning and Anthony will be racing just about every weekend up until Christmas. Lets hope his CCNS cyclocross skinsuit gets here from Champion Systems before "Old Man Winter" does!

In non-cycling related news, team rider Bob German faced off against Coach Aidan Charles' brother Foster in an ice cream eating contest at the CCNS office. 45 minutes into the ordeal Bob had downed a half gallon and was talking about puking and Foster had a lot of catching up to do! Photos and results soon to follow!
