Transparent Racing

Bringing Mountain Bike and Cyclocross into the 21st Century

One of my recent projects has been starting a professional mountain bike and cyclocross race team, called Transparent Racing (check out our blog at http://transparentracing.blogspot.com). My original plan was to have this team start for the cyclocross season (winter) of 2009, but after finding out that the team I thought I was going to race for, Team DEVO, was not happening this year, I decided to bump it up and race for my newly created team. My friend, Kat Statman, is also joining the team this summer, and we have two female racers who will be joining us for cyclocross season (whose names I am not at liberty to mention because they have current racing commitments).

This past weekend, April 18-19th, was our first race of the season as Transparent Racing and we raced the 2009 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA. Both of us finished both the short track cross country and the cross country, but neither of us had stellar results. The cross country race on Sunday was brutally hot, but we both finished (unlike 25% of the other Pro starters). Here are our thoughts post-race (and some team pictures).
