Sponsor Spotlight: Zing Bars

By | 2016, Cyclocross, Sponsor

Zing Bars was created by four nutritionists from Bastyr University who were seeking to recommend a energy bar for patients. When the search for the perfect bar did not yield a satisfactory product, Zing Bars was created. Today, Zing Bars come in 12 varieties, with an optimal balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.

Why we like Zing:

First and foremost, we like Zing Bars for their flavor. They taste decidedly better than most energy bars, and the texture feels fresh, chewable, and digestible. We also appreciate that Zing Bars come in a real variety of flavors.

Five things you should know about Zing:

  • The newest flavors of Zing are Lemon Cashew Crunch and Dark Chocolate Mocha
  • The protein profile for all 12 Zing Bars are specific and strategic:  Brown Rice Protein, Pea Protein, or Whey Protein
  • All 12 flavors of Zing Bars are certified gluten-free
  • You can purchase Zing Bars directly from Zing here
  • Treatment winners receive Zing Bars

Race Report – Lake Sammamish GP

By | 2016, Cyclocross

Season eight of MFG Cyclocross got underway this weekend, kicking things off with Lake Sammamish GP. Thirty minutes outside the city, racers faced a fast course that was notably different than years past. The sand that so often robs one of not only their power, but also their will to ride—and in the worst cases, run with their bikes—was absent. The flat, and at times bumpy course was a power rider’s dream, allowing for fast lap times, as close groups of riders tackled the course.

The final podiums of the day received “The Treatment”, a bevy of prizes for the top three in the Men’s SS, Master Men’s 1/2 (45+), and Master Men’s 1/2 (35+). In the single speed race in was Bryan Myers (Hodal!) who stood on the tallest step with Brad Nelson and David Chipchase (SCAA/Starbucks ) finishing second and third respectively. Steve Westover (Diamondback) took the honors in the Category 1/2 35+ and Craig Undem (Cycle U) stood tallest in the Master’s 45 +

LakeSammamishGP_2016_GWC-0124

A rejiggered schedule had put the category one – two races in the middle of the day, where crowds gathered in pockets throughout the course. Both the men’s and women’s races were run in the same time slot with no other categories, reducing the amount of lapped traffic for the racers to contend with. There were still lapped riders however and they would prove decisive.

In the women’s race, Monument Wheelworks Tricia Fleischer and 333Fab Factory team rider Heidi Wood quickly separated themselves from the pack of riders. A group of three riders led by Kenda Super (Hagens Berman/ Society Consulting) set to a fruitless chase. Wood and Fleischer traded leads for the first half of the race. Fleischer made her move near the thirty minute mark with a strong attack, leaving Wood to a solo chase. Fleischer eventually crossed the line with thirty seconds in hand over Wood. Bicycle Centers’ Hillary King eventually separated herself from Super to finish third.

LakeSammamishGP_2016_GWC-6070

The men’s race saw a group of men quickly separate themselves. The group, including last year’s usual suspects Scott Funston (RAD Racing) and Steve Fisher (McGovern Cycles – FSA CX). The group contained five riders, each taking a turn at the front as they sped along the course. It took some time, but slowly the group was whittled down to Fisher and Stephen Ettinger (Ride Bike Alliance p/b Focus Bikes). Ettinger made his move in the final lap as he and Fisher wound their way through lapped traffic. Ettinger crossed the line first, besting Fisher by a couple of seconds. Qarv Imports/Evoc’s Hector Fernando Riveros Paez finished on the podium’s third step.

Stop number two of the 2016 season comes in two weeks (9/25) when the series will return to Marymoor Park after a one year hiatus. Those who brave the early races will receive “The Treatment”.

Sponsor Spotlight: Raleigh

By | 2015, Cyclocross, Sponsor

Raleigh-16_RXC-Pro_Blue

MFG Sponsor: Raleigh Bicycles

Website: http://www.raleighusa.com

Like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter!

Location: Kent, WA
We’d like to think that our partnership with Raleigh Bicycles is exactly that:  a partnership. When MFG Cyclocross came onto the Seattle scene in 2009, Raleigh was definitely offering cyclocross bicycles, but perhaps in a different way than what the brand looks like today. Our friend and Raleigh Product Development Guy Brian “Sally” Fornes has transformed the Raleigh brand to a legitimate, internationally-recognized cyclocross powerhouse. Over the last seven years, Raleigh has graciously supported MFG Cyclocross as Title Sponsor, and together we’ve collaborated on creating a venue (MFG) and a product (Raleigh) to grow the sport and the industry of cyclocross.

In seven years, Raleigh has transitioned from being a company offering an aluminum cross bike that was meant for racing, but also as a utility bike, to a company that supports cyclocross on nearly every level, all around the globe. It’s safe to say that Raleigh is the modern day BOSS OF CROSS.

MFG would like say a sincere thanks to Brian and Raleigh Bicycles for supporting our series once again.

Today, Raleigh can boast the following cyclocross accolades:

  • Raleigh has been the Title Sponsor to MFG Cyclocross for the 7th year in a row.  To our knowledge MFG Cyclocross is the 2nd largest cyclocross series in the world, based on average participation.
  • Raleigh hosted the first-of-kind Midsummer Night’s Cyclocross in 2011 where the outcome of a single race lead to three professional contracts.    They again accomplished this feat in 2012 & 2103.
  • In the spring of 2012, Raleigh sponsored the first-ever cyclocross race at Sea Otter, the internationally-recognized, week-long bicycle racing festival.
  • Since 2012, Raleigh Bicycles has partnered with Clement to present the professional team Raleigh/Clement, featuring an international roster of riders including Jamey Driscoll and France’s Caroline Mani.
  • For 2016, Raleigh offers SEVEN cyclocross models in it’s line-up including women specific models.

Why we like Raleigh:

Raleigh is the perfect blend of fun, function, and fast. The Raleigh brand, models, and support for cyclocross is five parts fun, three parts fast, and four parts function.  Between the professional race team, the utilitarian , and the sponsorship of multiple cyclocross races, teams, and events, Raleigh is the real cyclocross deal.

Five things you should know about Raleigh:

1.    Raleigh sponsors the Raleigh/Clement professional cyclocross team.

2.    Raleigh’s cross line-up for 2016 features seven ‘cross options!

3.    Raleigh’s underground cyclocross singlespeed team in Seattle is HODALA!

4.    Raleigh/Clement recently won both days at CXLA this season.

5.    Raleigh USA headquarters are in Kent, WA.

Woodland Park GP Race Report

By | 2015, Cyclocross

The day dawned bright, clear and cold as Seattle settled in for a lull between storms. Sunny and clear isn’t the stereotypical weather for the MFG finale at Woodland Park. Years past the race has been rainy, or, at the very least, wet. Held later in the season to make room for a weekend of UCI racing, this year’s Woodland Park GP was surprisingly dry. The revamped course featured tricky corners, and a deceptive leg searing barrier forced run up. Sections of course remained slick throughout the day, but by the time the elite women took to the course, large portions had dried out. Spectators clustered in groups at both run ups to cheer for their local favorites, and a group dressed as escaped zoo animals (Woodland Park is also home to a zoo) offered encouragement and mini muffin hand ups.

The women’s race started off fast, with only a few of the usual suspects making a group of four that forced a quick separation. That group included series leader Kristen Kelsey (AXIOM HVAC/Cycle U), her teammate Melanie Lewis, and Monica Lloyd (Olympia Orthopedic Associates) the Athletic’s Abby Watson and Richard Sachs’ rider Elizabeth White. Within two laps however Monica Lloyd was off the front of the group and gaining time on her competitors. She would cruise to what seemed like an easy victory with a flawless, smooth ride, finishing the day with nearly fifty seconds in hand. Behind her Watson, Kelsey and Lewis weaved through lapped traffic and battled for position. In the end Lewis would best Watson in a sprint to the line, and Kelsey would roll in for fourth, and synching the series overall in the process.

Temps had warmed significantly by the start of the men’s field. The men took advantage of a dryer course, cruising through several sections with a ton of speed. The opening laps saw Russell Stevenson (Trek CXC), Raleigh/FSA CX’s Steve Fisher, and Zach McDonald (Source Endurance) and Rad Racing’s Scott Funston take control. The junior couldn’t hold on however, and soon it was Fisher, McDonald, and Stevenson animating the race. With four to go Fisher had fallen off while McDonald kept Stevenson behind him. “My goal today was to just ride the front and not let anyone else take a turn.” McDonald said afterwards. The rider tried several times to dispatch Stevenson, but the elder rider held on to McDonald’s wheel over the courses rolling climbs and sharp corners, but in the end it was McDonald who would still take the victory from the former Master’s World champ Stevenson. Fisher would eventually finish third.

The series ends this year with Kristen Kelsey taking the women’s overall, followed by Hedi Wood (333FabCX) and Monica Lloyd finishing third for the year. On the men’s side of things Steve Fisher, had his win locked down by the fourth race of the season, Stevenson—who missed two races this year, while competing elsewhere—finishes the series off in second, and Dyna Racing’s Mitchell Thonton finishes third, in a two way tie with Scott Funston with 96 points.

The series is over, but the party is not. On Monday, November 30th, series sponsor Brower’s Café will host the post season awards party from 6:00 pm till 9:00 pm. Brower’s Café is located at 400 N. 35th St. in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood.
