Cone-Azalia

In Ann Arbor Velo Club Team

One of the most important things about racing a bike is simply preparation.  Going out and pre-riding a course before the race can make all the difference between a podium spot and a DNF.

This race is well known for testing both bike and rider in the early season with wind, washboard roads, and gravel.

Just finishing is often an achievement and one well celebrated by a stop in at Original Gravity Brewing Co.
