TT, crit, dirt, rain

Plenty going on his weekend as we all deal with Bloomington-crit withdrawal.

If you fancy riding 150miles across the state as >10.7mph then RAIN is the event for you. Organized by the Bloomington Bike Club with mid-summer classic sees racers and tourists and far too occasional riders attempting to nagivate across the state.

The DRT consulting MTB race advertised for last week (by BVN) is actually this weekend out at BCSP.

It's the Indiana STate TT Champs in New Haven on Sunday. Locals Shanahan and Hamilton will be battling for the title whilst Rodkey is one of the favorites for the Cat3 crown. 40k, no waiting.

The Crit season moves to Ohio for a couple of good money races in Troy and Miamisburg. The cash brings out some good fields so get over there. NUVO has dominanted on home soil in recent weeks but it remains to be seen whether they can step it up across the border!

And throughout the next week 'Superweek' continues in the Chicagoland/ Milwaukee area. Plenty of expensive yet exciting racing to be had up there with a big crit in Evanston on Sunday and then three circuit races on monday-wednesday before 4 crits to finish. BVN will be headed up to do some racing so look out for some reports from the front-lines of 'weekend warrior vs aspiring P-R-O racing'- the Cat3s!
