Todd Wells continues to roll

Todd Wells took the victory today at the Verge Series event. He beat out Jesse Anthony and Chris Jones. Looks like he's coming in to form for Nats. Watch out Trebon!

I went bc skiing at Lolo today. Sunny and beautiful, but the coverage isn't quite there. Hopefully it will get better.

Kneller to Jittery Joe's

He's originally from Durango, but he went to school in Bozeman and race on the MSU team for a couple seasons. This past year he race for Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and travelled the NRC circuit as a neo-pro. The hard work has paid off. Jittery Joe's just announced they signed Ben for the 2008 season. Congratulations Ben! We'll be following your progress.

Rocky Mountain Roubaix

The Roubaix is tentatively scheduled for April 13th. Here's a picture from last year's race (courtesy of Twnya Morgan,

For all of you who have started training or are thinking about training, you've got 130 days till the Roubaix. Of course there are always early season races, like Cherry Pie in Corvallis, and the Mason Lake Series south of Seattle.

I'm excited to race the Roubaix. I've never raced it. I don't like the idea of a flat finish.....but I guess that's what Roubaix's are all about.

Todd Wells

Todd Wells is a sick rider. This is a photo of him with his new GT cross bike, complete with the new SRAM Red group. I got this photo off of his blog Speaking of the Red group, Astana just signed a deal with SRAM for 2008.

Watch out for Todd Wells at Nationals. He's coming into form. In 2005 he suprised Trebon with a powerful ride through the snow.

New Link

Nadia has created a Northern Rockies Racing blog. It will be a great resource for the team and other Montana racers. The link is listed on the right

Trainer Rides

Trainer rides have started. The Missoula Bicycle Works ride will be on Wednesday's at MBW, and NRO's trainer ride will be on Monday at 6:30 at Tamara's place.

Close to Accurate

This weekend's GP's looked like a slop fest. I was close on my predictions. Johnson took day one and Trebon took day two. How about Jamey Driscoll?!??! I thought he would win the U23, but I didn't think he'd be in the top 10 both days. That guy is animal, and a future star of US cross.

Rumor has it Compton was sick, but cross is cross and there aren't any excuses. Hats off to Georgia Gould for the series and the two victories. She's got some power. In the juniors race my man Steve Fisher got a win. I was pumped about that. Well on to nationals for everyone. Should be another showdown.
