GearLink Racing News
14 June 2010
IN A PERFECT WORLD the bike racing season in Florida would run from November through March to take advantage of the beautiful weather down here during that time of year. Bike racing itself is hard enough. Is it really necessary that race organizers make it that much harder by scheduling races when the heat index is 105 degrees?
But, alas, we don’t get to make up the race schedule. We just pin our numbers on and line up when and where we are told to like the good little soldiers that we are.
And so a couple of weekends ago, a Few Good GearLink Men made the trek out to Stuart to battle the heat and the humidity, not to mention a couple of tough courses and a couple of hundred tough competitors, in the Treasure Coast Race Classic. The race format consisted of a Saturday Circuit Race on a curvy, narrow, fast course, followed by a 4-corner Criterium in downtown Stuart on Sunday. Sunday’s race was a Florida Cup race as well.
