Two Provincial titles for Erace Cancer Cycling Team and Foundation 2014Huge Kudos Lori Kofman and Rob " the machine " Sule for laying down Ontario Cycling Association provincial title wins. They are both incredible racers and I'm putting everyone on notice that you should not let their innocent demeanour at the start line fool you. They both can do some serious damage to their competitors and I'm always proud of their determined killer focus with a smile on the side.
It was a great day ( we were expecting snow! ) but it wasn't actually bad at all Hardwood Ski and Bike. Congrats to my fellow competitors and teammates . Special mention to Marshall Eidinger for a stellar performance and podium in his first year at cx .We know everyone worked hard yesterday Brad Hunter,& Stephen Chester
Thats a wrap.... racing ends March 2014 Paris Ancaster - Nov, 9 2014 Cyclocross provincials. $65000.00 raised for Camp Oochigeas Thanks to everyone for following and our amazing teammates, club members and sponsors


Thats a wrap on racing for 2014 and hope to  see you  all supporting and racing or riding with us next year ( or maybe out riding in the snow )

Ellison Park , Rochester NY.
Lori and I raced at Ellison Park in Rochester yesterday
It was a really interesting course
250 feet of climbing per lap and a bit tricky
Sort of what we might call "mountain cross"
Really interesting to race in the states 
Very different than the home turf.

A few great results, pics and Cross Season is here!

The Erace season is still going strong
In the past few weeks we have had  really solid results in the following races

Ontario Provincial Time Trial
Ontario Provincial Mountain Bike
Ontario Provincial Criterium
The 8 hours race last weekend at Hardwood Hills
Cowbell Cyclocross 1st Ocup

Firstly let me say that I might make some mistakes in posting results. I might inadvertently leave someone out or miss something. No offence to anyone if i screw this up!

Cowbell Cross

It was the season opener.  The first O Cup. We had a really strong showing last weekend at the event
Lots of the team were there. Lori , myself, Gabe , Steve Chester , Brad ,Marshall and Joe
It was fast and flat making for an hour of power.

Although everyone did really well Lori kicked some serious butt and placed 1st in her cat.
Another win for her.

We will be back for more at TOCX this weekend

Ontario Provincial Mountain Bike race
Horseshoe Ontario

Rob Sule and Garnett were the main event
They did some serious damage out there with Rob Sule placing second in his cat
Rob has excelled all year at his riding and this was another solid podium
Garnet worked hard showing well in his category

Much more to come as we continue the Cross season. it going to get cold and the racing is going to get much hotter.  We have great attendance so should   do really well as a team in the cross discipline overall standings Stay tuned

From Mikaela Kofman
Hey Everybody...
As the 2014 season is coming to an end the SCOTT-3Rox team is looking forward to 2015. The team has high hopes for the upcoming 2015 season with the Pan American Games taking place here in Toronto. 3 Rox Racing has the potential to qualify a large portion of the Canadian contingent competing at the Games. The team will be hosting a year end event to not only celebrate a successful 2014 season but to support the "push for Pan-Am" dream. Additionally, over the 5 years that I have raced for 3 Rox Racing it has gone from a home-grown local development squad to a UCI elite professional XC team. Coming out to this event will help the 3 Rox team maintain its UCI elite status which enables world class competition on the World Cup Circuit. I look forward to seeing you October, your support is always appreciated!
Following is the official invite and link to the event.
-Mikaela Kofman-
Scott-3 Rox Racing would like to invite you to an evening with Canada’s premier mountain bike team. SCOTT-3 Rox Racing is a Canadian Professional mountain bike team and UCI Elite Team currently ranked 16th in the world. The event includes cocktail reception, silent auction, and a chance to support Canada’s only UCI Elite professional XC team. The year-end party is an opportunity to not only support the push for Pan-Am, but to meet some of the best XC riders in North America including a multi-time Olympian and several National and Pan American Champions.
Cheers
KD

So we are at the 66% or 2/3 mark in this season and its just starting to get exciting, Our team of fantastic athletes, racers,riders, club members and sponsors are heading into the next phase of the riding season.

As the summer shifts to  the fall  season our members will compete in a number of big events . For some these events are really big hurdles and major accomplishments for others they form part of the process and a continuation of a race season that started in April and will finish with most probably a snowy Cyclocross in some part of the country

Some up and coming major events

Blue Mountain Centurion. A 170 KM Grand Fondo with over 6000 feet for climbing . Historically we have allot of riders participating. Its tough and fun all at the same time!

Weekly Cyclocross practice

Big Miles Posted last week at Erace Cancer Cycling Team


Erace Cancer posts big climbs and miles last week. A few caveats,  Note that allot of team does not use Stava or ride with a GPS so team mile in any given week may be much higher. We are working on a fundraiser for www.ooch.org +CampOoch  based upon tracked Strava over a given week. Please stay tuned, we need our support.
