  • Bike MS Ride Summary
    by Erich Meier In 2008, I participated in my first event after a work-out partner raved about his experiences and then began soliciting donations from family and friends. This is when I found out that my uncle’s wife, Jennifer, had been diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) after having bouts of leg numbness, but was not yet ready to share her diagnosis. The first event went great, but left a feeling that I should be doing something more! After participating in all 4 Michigan Bike MS events on multiple occasions, I ventured out to do the Vegas Challenge (NV), Bike to … Continue reading

  • Race Recap: Island Lake XC
    We had a solid showing at the Island Lake mountain bike race this past sunday. With a race roster of Joshua Hall, Nate Benke, Phil Huyghe, Erik Huyghe, Jake Samborski, Melissa Seymore, Mark Boden, and myself, I think it is safe to say this was one of the best turnouts O2 has had at an MTB race. Not to mention we had Mike Dega, Chris Wanely, and Mary Raftery show up as part of the support squad. The O2 tent was set up in prime location and my better half Becky helped me cart our grill out to make sure … Continue reading

  • Yankee Springs MTB TT Race Recap
    “Josh Hall, Jake Samborski, and myself went went to Yankee Springs for a long weekend of camping, riding, and racing. I had never ridden Yankee before, it was a blast, lot’s of elevation for lower Michigan, something about melting glaciers. The trail had some awesome descents which is a nice change up from the smaller, rolling hills found at our local trails. Yankee was Josh’s first Cat 1 XC race and he placed 13th out of 32 in the Cat 1 30-39 race! Mr. Samborski (aka the Gnardawg) definitely felt at home on this technical course, he placed 7th out … Continue reading

The Elite team controlled the A race. Came in with a plan to get someone in the winning break. Ended up getting Mike Dega and Brian in the break. Mike got 4th and Brian got 6th. Great team work by all blocking and covering.
  • The 2013 Fifth Annual Woodward Loop Recap
    The Fifth Annual Woodward Loop Ride brought together the largest number of riders ever for this event since its 2009 inception which was the 100th Anniversary of Woodward Avenue being paved.  A total of 170 riders participated in the Loop ride.  90 of the riders started out from Biggby Coffee in Birmingham on Old Woodward & Maple at 7:30 and headed out on the “first” start, riding north to Pontiac and around Wide Track Drive, also referred to as the “Loop.”  Thanks to Kristen J. for her directions around a couple of minor road issues near the tracks south of … Continue reading
  • 2013 Cherry Roubaix Road Race (45+)
    The 45+ group produced great results at the 2013 Cherry Roubaix Road Race. The course is 23.3 miles per lap with the masters race completing 3 laps. The start-summit finish line is high atop Sugar Loaf Mt.  I thought I would share what I observed during the race that gave O2 the victory. Pre-Race It was decided during a pre-race meeting that Mike Dega was going to be the aggressor, a roll that the Team agreed could lead to a stage victory.  Dega committed himself to a roll of extreme effort that would lead to victory – or an all-out … Continue reading
  • 2013 Lumberjack 100
    While James Ignash and the rest of team O2 were kicking butt at the Cherry Roubaix race on Saturday, I was at the Lumberjack 100 mountain bike race (lumberjack100.com) near Manistee.  For the LJ 100, I set three goals; 1) to finish, 2) to finish without being completely spent and 3) to finish less than 10 hours.  I followed a 12-week training program developed by Chris Eatough (chriseatough.com). RACE DAY began with the “not-so-mandatory” 6:30 am rider meeting.  While on my way to the mass start I saw a familiar 02 jersey – it was Al Lake.  Al is a … Continue reading
  • West Branch Road Race
    We had a great day of racing Saturday. Our team was one of the most well represented teams there with a total of 11 racers in 4 categories. Out of those 11 racers, we had 4 on the podium and many others in the top 10. There was some great teamwork throughout the day and even more team support. The Flahute of the Day goes to Jerry Gase who, despite having rear derailleur problems before the race, raced anyhow. Basically he rode up one of the hardest hills you will find in a race with only two gears (big chain … Continue reading
  • 2013 Frankenmuth Road Race Report (Cat 3)
    By Paul Skorupskas For the Tour of Frankenmuth, the CAT 3 team brought six racers (Derek Delzer, Chris Matthews, Doug Burcicki, Jerry Gase, Brian Wachlarz and myself [Paul Skorupskas]) to the start line to be one of the largest teams – if not the largest team – represented in the field. This group added three racers to the mix compared to those that represented the team at Cone-Azalia included our newest addition to the racing club in Brian Wachlarz. Having such a large presence in the race meant that we would be on the attack throughout. This gave us two … Continue reading
  • New page for race recaps
    If anyone is interested in providing me with a race recap, I’ll post it to the club’s website.  Paul Skorupskas submitted me with a great piece highlighting his race at Cone Azalia (CAT3).  I’m going to post the recaps under the Race heading, within a new page I created titled The 2013 Red Tail Recap. Please contact me with questions, concerns or new ideas.
  • Cone-Azalia Classic Road Race
    Our racers performed well this past weekend in Milan.   We scored a win in the Masters’ 45s (Jim Ignash) and three other Podium places (Masters 35’s, Tony Bruley; Category 3, Paul Skorupskas; Cat 5,  Alexander VanLeuven), as well as a number of other placings.   We were definitely noticed for our presence and team work.  All the details will be posted on our web site shortly. Race Team:  As was reviewed at the Annual meeting, we are putting additional focus on a results oriented race team. The Cat 2/3/Masters team (aka Elite or A team) is about providing a race team within the club … Continue reading

    O2 / Cadieux Bike Club comes out swinging Sunday: Tony ripped it up in Ann Arbor… After sharing some racing knowledge during the Club’s Cross Winds Clinic on Saturday, Tony went out to Ann Arbor Sunday morning and finished 4th in the A race.  Great Job Tony, we expect nothing less:) Then a new member, Jeremy Meyersick, finished first in the 4/5 race.  WOW…  Welcome to the Club!  A great start to the new season.   
  • Saturday, April 20th – Cross Wind Clinic
    I’m not talking about a ride leaving from Crosswinds Mall, I’m talking about how to ride and race in the wind. Cross winds create unique challenges and opportunities during a ride or race.     The Clinic will begin in Stony Creek Metro Park at 2:00pm.  We will meet in the building located at the boat launch and spend 20-30 mins talking and then ride.   This ride will is primarily designed to train the space between  your ears,  training  your legs and  aerobic system will be secondary priority.  There may be stopping  to explain things and/or yell at you like a grouch old bike … Continue reading
