The 2019 Mettle Cycling Cyclocross Team headed down to the West Coast Cyclocross Points Prestige for some very early season points chasing. we rode 5 races in 3 days while lining up next to pros, increasing our USAC point values, and sweating like crazy over a dusty 100 degree weekend.
Friday 6/21 - Come celebrate the longest day of the year with a bunch of silly hooligans, bring your lights and a smile, and prepare for a nice cafe social where the coffee is donated by Breadwinner and the snacks are on us… all before the morning rush hour.
ALL HAIL GULONVARG - The traits of Gulonvarg are an amalgamated fantasy; reflective of Mettle’s collective squad. Able to cooperate as a small horde and calculate the next move like a pack of wolves; quiet until prodded; capable of trampling creatures much larger than itself…Fangs for blood. Horns for perseverance. Strength in unity…

Yep...this is now "a thing." Jerks getting up (or staying up) to see the sun rise on the longest day of the year 25 miles away.
Conor Brady grew up in Ireland, where his father Bill would leave every August on a two week ride around the country. A ride he called "the big lap." Bill Brady lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2013, and Conor never got to share that ride with him. In the summer of 2017, Conor pieced together his father's route from his old maps, and he and the Leave It On The Road crew set out to recreate The Big Lap, riding 1,000 miles in 10 days to raise donations for the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer.
We put some detail into the details and had some rad folks agree to build something with that many details. Thank you to Todd at Stoemper and Josh at HiFi for making something so fantastic.
Mettle Riders Aden Kailin and Bennett Shane set out on a "Farewell Summer Tour" through some of the most iconic, Mid-Western riding they could find. Both sent a Field Report of their favorite day of the trip with some good photos from the rest...
OOPS...We did it again. Great photos from this year and 22 riders showed up (what a bunch of lunatics)!
