Rocky Mountain Roubaix!!!!!

So sorry no one has posted a race report on Tour of Walla Walla.

All I can say is "NRO was a legit presence" noted by many.
I will post pics soon.

On to the the Roubaix: two things
  • the finish is the same as last year....
  • the dirt sections are a bit softer and have more gravel in spots.
So.....use your best judgement and get ready to rumble!!!!

TONS of freebies for ALL. Tons of schwag for some cash, of course.

See you all there!

NRO cyclists showing up strong at the Griz triathlon 2009!

With a smile on her face, Jen Leubke made her first place finish look easy!  Way to go Jen!
Jen prepares for a fast transition.  
After a fast transition, Matt went on to kill it on the run...  I missed the photo op finish because I was so enamored by the look of pain and suffering on his face!  (not to mention screaming at him that his buddy B. Halpin was hunting him down!)  Matt ended up with a third place finish!  Great job, Matt!
Matt - coming in strong after a fast and furious bike!

Sophia and Kelly-  you can always count on them for a good laugh!

Oh yes, ladies and gentleman...Doug is back and looking fit!

Megan and Dusty- this is just a warm up for their Ironman Canada later this summer!
