Precision Bikes Racing took another overall victory in the P,1,2 division this past weekend for the Raising Canes Time Trial Omnium. The omnium consisted of back to back Time trial events in which a 4-man – 2-man – then individual TT events were held over two days of racing. Each individual event was won by the teams consisting of Jed Darby, Jacob Falgout, Brian Rizk, and myself. In the end Brian Rizk took the overall victory in the individual, clinching the overall victory and fastest times of the day! The course record was missed in the 4 man by 1 min and 15 seconds over 32 miles. The average speed was 28.4 mph for the 32 mile / 3 lap course.
Once again – Thanks you for your time and most importantly your financial support. Take care!

“Shimano makes bike equipment that works beautifully. Campagnolo makes beautiful bike equipment that works.”

“Shimano’s boss did not start a cycling equipment company because his hands were frozen solid on a Giro mountain pass and he couldn’t get his wheel off.”

“Most bike shops sell Shimano.
You have to actively make the decision to go the Campagnolo route. This choice marks you out as different and more serious about your sport.”

“Shimano is the world leader in fishing tackle. Campagnolo only makes bicycle components.”

“One is made by scientists in the lab, the other by craftsmen with oil under their nails.”
