Join Coach Jim Whittaker and the GP VeloTek women as we learn about the fundamentals of racing before the 2016 race season begins!
All women are welcome whether you have never raced but want to try it out this year, you are a racer and want to learn more about the sport to gain an advantage on your opponents or you don’t forsee any races in your future but want to learn a bit about them and gain some bike handling skills in the meantime.
We will start the day with an indoor classroom session to learn what racing is all about, how to prepare for a race and how to recover. Then we will take to the outdoors (unless there is ice or snow on the ground) and practice skills including cornering, and how to clip in at the start line.
If the roads are too dangerous to ride on we will lengthen our indoor classroom lesson. Safety first!

Think it’s too cold to ride road? Not so, get out to the TREK store of Shawnee for your winter gear and come out and see us. With proper prep riding in the cold can be every bit as enjoyable as 70 degree’s. And the coffee taste better and the warm shop is even more enjoyable.
Team GP VeloTek starts their official Winter Team Training Ride. This ride will be every Saturday until further notice.

Team GP VeloTek is hosting a VIP Party at the Tour of Lawrence. Join our team and our regional guests to celebrate high speed American Style Crit racing! Special thanks to Ingredient and Cork & Barrel for their awesome support.
Look for our Team area in the middle of the Downtown “figure eight”. See the finish line, the wheel pit, and watch the critical last corner before the drag race to the finish. Team GP VeloTek has 75+ teammates along I-70 from Junction City to St. Louis. Our founder lives in Lawrence, KS but we even have 20 teammates in Albuquerque New Mexico.
Before the Tour of Lawrence Team GP was leading many KCA Race and participation categories, look here. Over 50 local and regional Team GP teammates are volunteering to staff the Tour of Lawrence Race. You’ll see them all over the course this weekend helping along with other community partners to make a difference.

Story to post….
Frank Sanchez Team, GP VeloTek New Mexico Coach reports that Samuel wins his 1st Gold medal at the Sandia Road Race, New Mexico. Samuel attacked and stayed away to win by 10 mins from the competition. 15 Year old GP VeloTek racer Samuel gets it done! When asked what he was thinking “He said if he put his mind to it He could.” He did it! Two RR so far this year. Two 1st places and is leading the series. Other earlier season RR only gave him series points but no medal!
Samuel is 15 years old and has the build of a pure climber. Sandia has an altitude of 10,800′ at the finish line, and the climb is over 5000 feet of vertical.
Stay tuned for an interview with Samuel.
