Thanks for the helmet cam. A bright green bike, a bright pink bike and it looks like there is about as much elevation lost on the decents as there is climbing!! Way to go!

Hmmm....maybe I'll have to check out this series..
question: why the psuedo euro names? not even sure what language 'ris van' is from? danish? certainly not dutch.
maybe you should call it the "Frusen Glädjé Race Series" :D
btw - thanks for the video. will really have to try and do one of your races when i'm back in the US.

heh thanks for the feedback. I took the camera off after Ris and started the P/1/2/3's - felt a difference in weight, but I think I'll keep the cam on. I'm out of contention for the Series and the cam is fun.
for the answers:
Names - since each race is a separate race, we decided to name them differently. Honestly we are not the originators, we copied the Kissena NY series. I put "Tour of Bethel" in a translation site and got Ronde, Ris, and the Kirche name. The others are simply adaptations of some of the euro-pro races. Makes it fun. It's all about fun after all.
Oh I forget where Ris came from. It just sounded cool.

Ah Bethel the little town I grew up in and left in 1987. I remember the little Bethel Bike shop and I used to like to watch the Danbury criteriums. In high school there was a bunch of us that used to be into bike racing. Glad to see they have their own series these days.
