Fall and Winter... Usually: Cold... Dark... Lonely... Not this year! Come out to our Monday night trainer sessions at BBW! (Baltimore Bike Works). Aaron Mojo has organized a great way to train through the winter, build fitness, learn about your strengths and limiters; and have a lot of fun with other motivated riders! The sessions will be about an hour and focus on all aspects of riding from developing your Time Trialing and Climbing; to your leg strength, sprinting, and pedal technique. Now is the time to work on your fitness for next year! Each week we will have a structured workout that will help your training and 2012 preparation. Come see some of your friends and make new ones while you get fast and have fun!

In 2010 Team BBC and Kelly Benefit Strategies/LSV will be co-hosting Schooley Mill Cross, the first race in the Howard County Double Cross (HoCo2xCx) race weekend. The race will be held at Schooley Mill Park on Saturday November 20, 2010.
With obstacles unlike any others found in the Mid-Atlantic, this is a horse of a course. This equestrian facility offers impeccable spectating as riders race across a large and varied course. The course includes several dismounts, a run-up, a water hazard, a 250-meter start, and UCI-spec pits.
Schooley Mill Cross will be the first race in the Howard County Double Cross race weekend and race #9 of the MABRAcross series. On Sunday November 21, our friends at Adventures For the Cure are hosting Rockburn Cross. More information, including registration details, about both races can be found at www.hoco2xCx.com.Updated 10/30/10 by Andres Correal

Schooley Mill is now in the books! I think everyone who worked the race heard people say how much they liked the race and the venue. The race couldn't have been so great without all of your help. So to everyone who contributed, thank you so much! Special thanks to Geoff Frost and Andres Correal. They worked extremely hard and made many personal sacrifices to make both Schooley Mill and Rockburn (C3's race on Sunday) successful. Here is the race write-up in Cyclocross Magazine:
It's all about the mud baby! On Sunday September 27th, a bunch of the usual TBBC suspects showed up to race in the delicious peanut butter that can only be found on the grounds of Maryland's Lilypons Water Gardens. Our crew slogged it out all day in mud that was churned thicker by the hour. Ian Mathias did very well in the Elite Men's race, finishing 7th, while Jim Mudd gave a strong performance in the Elite Master's race, finishing 14th.Updated 09/29/09 by John Scott
Ahh 'cross is back. Dirt, grass, barriers and obstacles greeted 13 riders from Team BBC who competed in the Charm City Cyclocross race held Sunday Sept. 20th in Baltimore. The 4 race had a few newcomers getting their first taste of cyclocross and some returning team members testing their fitness while the more advanced classes had some new (to Team BBC) members showing their skills and training. A good time had by all and no tales of carnage seems to have us off to a great start. Next up: Ed Sanders Cyclocross on Sept. 27th!Updated 09/22/09 by Mike Kralec
It's almost time for the Civil War Century! Each year, a number of us volunteer to help the Baltimore Bicycling Club with Civil War Century (which is already sold out). It's a fantastic way to end the road-racing season. Team BBC's volunteers usually work in the early morning and ride part of the route afterward. Please consider volunteering your time to help the BBC. If you'd like to volunteer, please do so at: www.baltobikeclub.org/index.pl/cwcUpdated 08/25/09 by John Scott
Team BBC is hosting a cyclocross race at Schooley Mill park on Saturday November 21, 2009. It will be the first race in the Howard County Double Cross (HoCo2xCx) race weekend, and is part of the MABRAcross series. On Sunday November 22, our friends at C3 are hosting Rockburn Cross.

From the kick-off of the 2009 road racing season at Trade Zone, the Team has seen continued success on the road every weekend. All indicators point towards more of the same for the rest of the season. A wealth of talented racers have joined the already formidable contingency of seasoned team veterans. Several racers have upgraded from men's CAT 5 to CAT 4 and we now have powerhouse CAT 3 racers brandishing the pink on both the men's and women's teams! We've been attracting some serious attention from rival teams and inspiring some rather colorful, competition-inciting commentary from the race announcers. Our competition is taking notice that Team BBC is clearly a force to be reckoned with. The Team's laudable race record has been made possible through a no-nonsense team approach to group training, as well as through the comprehensive training and coaching assistance so capably provided by Krista and Chris. Let's not forget the countless hours and miles of individual training we've all undertaken on the road, and sometimes the basement, all of which has aided in developing our tenacious squad of dedicated road racers. As the road season slowly winds down, many teammates will take advantage of the fitness gains they've realized and make the transition to cyclocross and MTB, where "fear the pink" will certainly be running through the minds of our competition. Welcome to all of our new racers and congratulations to everyone for a great start to the racing season. Here's to continued success on and off the road!!!Updated 06/15/09 by Mike Kralec
Team BBC had a strong showing at Rockburn Reloaded in Howard County,. We voluteered at this race and had 7 racers across the beginner and sport categories. A 1st and 2nd place in the men's beginner category and a 2nd in the women's beginner category were the story of the day. A great day of racing and a fast course. Looking forward to the cross race in the fall!
