You can find more from those sets in the socal forums San Luis Rey thread, and there are more pics from the cat 4 race by kuf on our blog. We took some pics from other categories that are not yet online. Which category are you looking for?

Still suffering...


Done


I guess the women's team doesn't get the team bikes. She's on an Incycle/SC Velo Cannondale.

Edit: one more from the 3/4 field

Greatest shorts ever. I guess the really hot ones were racing in New Mexico.

Sweet pics. I was looking for some of the Cat 5s, if any. I was in the B group (UCSD kit). Thanks.

What's the deal with these RR girls? What category are they racing? They don't exactly look like hardened racers.

Most of them race P/1/2/3. Some of them are fast and competitive. But I think the number one requirement is that they are hot.

Haha, I see their jersey says 'SAAB'. I thought they should have the caddy logo... Hmm...

The mismashed set of bikes is interesting as well. I guess it's all good though.

Yeah, I don't imagine they have the budget of the UCI men's team. Not yet, anyway. I think Michael Ball would be wise to market them a little better.

I guess the skinny arms are throwing me off. Most of the racers I know are a little more built.

Also the fact that they look like they've spent more time in the tanning salon than in the sun.

The pics were from the 1-3 race, and the last one was from the start of the 3/4 race. The 1-3 women came in 13,14, and 19th. The 3/4 woman came in DFL-1.

What? Do you spend a lot of time in a velodrome? Skinny arms are par for the course.

Kuf wanted to get in on the action. She wanted me to post a picture of her suffering in a race, so here she is at Sea Otter.

Awesome. The last time saw her out there was Anger Management. Good suffer face. I always just try to keep a straight face and pretend i'm not suffering.
