I recently joined a cycling team to race with this year. The name of the team is S.E.A.R. (South East Area Riders – or Racers, haven’t quite figured that out yet). Anyway, the size of the club is approaching 100 members so it is quite strong and well established. It dwarfs any other organization I’ve trained and raced with. They’ve had as many as 60 people show up for a group ride – in the winter. Granted, it was a nice day…
Within the group, there’s around 20 CAT4 racers, and another 30 that are in the CAT4/35+ classification. Then we have a sprinkling of CAT3 and master’s racers, as well as some women’s 3’s and 4’s. If numbers mean anything, we should definitely be a factor in the races this year.
Our title sponsor is D.R. Horton (specifically the Continental Series) – they build very nice homes in Colorado.
Sadly, new homes for team members wasn’t on offer this year. Maybe when one of us beats Lance in the Tour… Kidding aside, it’s cool to have such a big name backing our team and seeing their commercials on TV. Hopefully, we can get them good exposure and results in the races.
