'A' and 'B' Race Recaps

“That was epic!”

Epic is a word that is often overused or misused in this day and age. But the use of that word today at the Twin Bing Classic Road Race was entirely appropriate. We in northwest Iowa may lack the cobblestones and frites of Belgium but we have our own punchy climbs and Twin Bing candies. However, any grizzled Belgian road racer would’ve felt right at home with the brutal weather presented to the brave few who came to compete at Climbing Hill on Sunday.

2013: The Year in Review

Written by: Admin

Mr. Admin is sorry for the lateness in posting last year's review but it's been a cold winter and he's been hibernating. Or something. And oh yeah, the site had been broken for a few months. He eventually figured out how to unbreak it but the appearance is kind of plain for the time being. Anyway...
