SWS was excited to have another BHB Criterium Series this year! There is nothing better than a local race series that has a local brewery- Crank Arm Brewery– putting up growlers for the top placers!
This past weekend we saw our very own Emily Graff take the podium in second, outsprinting two other riders she had been working with to catch Jamie (Constellation Cycling)- who solo’d off the front following a mid-race prime.
Prior to her own race, Emily’s 10 year old son Josh jumped in the junior field and finished his very first criterium. The BHB course is family friendly and offers plenty of space for the young ones to ride and romp while their parents race.
SWS can’t wait to see the BHB CX course this fall 🙂
With the infamous Raleigh criterium series less than a month away, it’s time we shine the spotlight on our sponsor Berger Hardware.
BHB, as we call them, are known for putting on a killer summer criterium series, a brutal fall cyclocross series, and sale of Firefly bikes.
The 7th annual BHB Criterium Series will start May 14th on the notorious Dorthea Dix course. Last year, Spokeswomen saw our very own Danielle Baker on the top step of the series podium and Allie Wetzel taking third overall in the series. It’s a fun and fast race with steep kicker that will make even the best legs scream. Prizes and primes are always on Par, sombreros and beer growlers not withstanding.
