DORBA Fall Series – Cedar Hill Reschedule

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What a spectacular inaugural season we’ve had!  The last race in what became a make up race ended our 2013 season with a bang.  We brought 10 racers and all did a great job finishing this fast course.

A couple of highlights include Braden Barnett ending his season with his first 1st place showing!


Brandon Schrader finished his year with 2 5th place, 2 4th place, and 2 3rd place finishes and the lead in the team overall points competition.  In addition, Nathan Delahoussaye and Wes Salas both finished in the top ten of the normally packed and competitive Cat 3 30 -39 category

With the majority of our racing members agreeing to comeback for the 2014 season, and the team looking to expand it’s racing roster, we can hope to see more successes in the future!  If you’re interested in applying for 2014 racing membership, we will open up the application process on November 11th.  For more information on team membership, read here!  *We have a limited number of spots available

Here are the overall results from the race:

What is your first memory of riding a bicycle? I remember riding on the handle bars of my sister’s bike. I hated it but at 4 years old I don’t think I had much choice.
Why do you ride a bicycle? I had back surgery in the Marines in ’99. My weight and less severe back pain was a problem after that. Mountain biking has enable me to have fun, find something that is as challenging as I want to make it and help keep the weight off.
What does Bearded Women mean to you? A group that likes to race and have some fun.

What a showing the team put up at the final race of this endurance series!  A 1st Place spot in the Team Open category was awarded to Minh Nguyen (KOM of the 8 mile loop, btw) and Keith McDonald.  This is our first 1st place award for our new racing team!  Also, Randy Davis improved 4 places in just his second solo endurance event to date, finishing just out of the top ten in 11th Place in the solo under 39 category.  Brad Wendling completed his first solo endurance race after coming back from an injury during a crash.

We entered 10 total racers for this event to continue a strong showing, and are gaining traction in the area.  Up next, we switch back to sprint racing for the DORBA Fall Series, which looks to be fast and tough!  See the full DORBA Fall race series schedule here.  Look for us at LB Houston on August 18th for the first race of the series.
