Cinch Cycling Gravel Clinic
Leanne Gould
Published on: 11/17/2021
It was a beautiful, crisp, fall morning. Layers to keep off the chill knowing that soon we would be grateful we had SAG support from Henry Zuver and Charlotte Sprague when we peeled off the arm warmers and jackets and didn’t have to stuff them into pockets already filled with bananas, power bars and fig newtons.
2021 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah
Lea Rolfes
Published on: 10/22/2021
A few years ago Ironman made a shift to the 70.3 (half Ironman) race circuit by rotating the location of
the 70.3 World Championships in an effort to make it more of an international affair and to add a layer
of allure similar to Ironman World Championships in Kona. Additionally, the 70.3 WC became a two-day
race format with women and men racing on consecutive days. Smaller field, built-in spectators, no
sharing of porta-potties with dudes on race day – pretty fabulous.

Escape to Blue Ridge getaway
Melanie King & Claudia Bailey
Published on: 9/19/2021
I joined the Sorella race team in January 2020. I was incredibly excited to be a part of a team….gatherings, group rides, races. Then the pandemic began. Races canceled, gatherings and group rides were out of the question. Roll into 2021 and things were possibly looking better. I couldn’t have been happier when the team picked a weekend to stay in a couple beautiful cabins provided by our sponsor, Escape to Blue Ridge.

Melanie King

Samantha Wotiz
Published on: 8/19/2021
Do you know what to do if a fellow cyclist goes down and hits her head? If she’s knocked out but comes to are you supposed to call 911? What is your role after witnessing a potential head injury? While you could spend hours or days taking a certification class to learn more, it is my hope that this article gives you a quick perspective on some best practices around cycling head injuries. (Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor and this article does not provide medical advice.)

Saskia Hoppe
Published on: 8/16/2021
The Sorella Buckhead Hills route ride has been running every April to September for over 25 years (except in 2020, but no one is counting 2020 anyway!) in various shapes and forms.

Darcy Grimes
Published on: 6/17/2021

Garmin Unbound 100 recap
Samantha Lindsey Wotiz
Published on: 6/17/2021
Kansas was hot. The course starts easy, gets rolling and technical, then becomes a mental game of talking yourself through every passing mile. The reward is worth pushing through the growing physical and mental fatigue.
