The Twin City Cyclists and Vantage Multi-Sport Groups hosted the annual Criterium and Time Trial in Monroe, Louisiana this past weekend. Only 2 representatives of PBR made the long journey; Glenn (>>RR>>) Richard and new team member from New Iberia, LA – Chase Romero. It was a beautiful weekend with temperatures in the mid 70’s – perfect racing weather. The criterium course was a flat and smooth 1 mile long oval loop though a city park with plenty of shade for spectators. First up for Precision was Chase Romero in the Cat 5 division. There were about 20 people in the field – rather small – but a good race nonetheless. Chase did his best to keep his nose out of the wind and stayed with every acceleration until it was down to just him and another Canes rider for the sprint finish in which he sealed a solid 2nd place spot. Not bad for climbing aboard a road bike just last year! Next up was Glenn in the 1-2-3 field with about another 20 riders. Only one big name to make mention of was Ben Gabardi, a current member of the Garmin-Slipstream development squad. The first 2 laps were brutal – hitting in excess of 32mph on the back sides. I (glenn) began to question my conditioning at that point – but kept on pushing and jumping on every acceleration. Ben laid down 2 monster attacks that really hurt me to stay on his wheel and I knew at that point he was on his game. On the bell lap, everyone was jockeying for position before the final turn – so I had to eat some wind to keep a decent position for the sprint. I wanted Ben’s wheel but there were others with the same idea. I was 2 bikes behind him and he got a really good jump coming out of the final turn and I knew I had some catch up to do – but could not catch him and missed him by a wheel for 2nd place. I think I died right after that. The time trial was a 12 mile out and back. Chase was the first one off and he knocked out a 31:36 for a solid 3rd place position. Glenn made a rookie mistake and missed his start time by a minute fifteen. I didn’t feel too motivated after that but put in a decent effort anyway. Oh well – not a bad start for Precision Bikes Racing for 2011. Myself and the sponsors hope to see more of you for the Rouge Roubaix in 2 weeks!

I know Christmas has come and gone, but you still have time to buy a new race kit for yourself so you can squeeze one more gift in for 2011! That’s right, we are ready to place another order with Hincapie Sportswear for our race uniforms, which will utilize the same design from 2010.

We are going to order the Velocity line from Hincapie Sportswear, which is their Pro Level gear (same kit Team BMC uses). Despite a few minor issues last year, the Hincapie gear has been well received with great reviews from our riders, both new and experienced.

To view gear for sizing/fit information, please visit this link.

I experienced a steep learning curve last year by not charging tax and trying to make up the difference by selling extra gear to Precision Bikes customers. Bad move on my part. Our initial order was over $13,000, which went on my credit card, and I ended up $900 short somehow. So this year, I will require that all orders add 8% tax to the order total.

We must meet at least a minimum of 10 orders per item, so it is recommended that we stay with the below pieces. If there is something else you would like to purchase, email me, and I will see if there are others interested in the same option. Here are the available items and their cost….

Jersey – $89.00 ($87.00 for ladies)
Bibs – $97.00 (Bibs aren’t available for women, but shorts are $88.00)
Speed Suit – $150.00
Skin Suit (Short Sleeve) – $117.00
Wind Vest – $86.00
Gloves – $25.00
Arm Warmers – $28.00
Leg Warmers – $34.00

To place your order, please email me your items at jasonmeaux@gmail.com
Please include PBR-”your first initial and last name” in the subject line.
Example: PBR-J.Meaux.
This will help me catalog all of your orders. After you send me an email, please total the cost of the above items you would like to purchase, multiply that amount times 8% for taxes and mail be a check to the below address…

I plan on submitting the final order to Hincapie on January 14th, 2011, which is 10 days from now. If I don’t have your check by then, you will have to wait until the next order for gear.

Please email with any questions you may have, and I hope to see you on the road soon!
