Crushin' Crew

Remember the rain of 2010? The heat that wouldn't end in 2011? The reliable unlimited buffet breakfast that brought you back to life?

We wouldn't change a damn thing about Riverwest24, and that's why we're coming back for more!

This year we're outfitting a team with some of the strongest performances the Crew has seen in recent history. With major wins, omnium domination, and skill across nearly every discipline of cycling, Cuttin Crew is pleased to present its 5 beautiful ladies as:

Winning Tutorial


Check out our interview at ICA's website! They've posted a lot of really cool media lately, and I can't wait to see what else they've got in store for the season!

We've got a barrage of results to share! 2012 is looking realllll good.

March 24th brought about Barry Roubaix, a grueling gravel race in Michigan. Mumford, Max, Avi, and Christina made the trek and made the results! (If you want more stories, you know all you gotta do is ask them!)

Max - 6th, 36-mile 20-29 Men

Avi - 4th, 36-mile Single Speed

Christina - 2nd, 36-mile 11-29 Women

Mumford - 19th, 62-mile Overall

Followed came a week of racing with Half Acre's well executed Gapers Block Crits, making history with an average of 38 women racing each night! Not all of the racers were placed, but of the results, we had teammates make marks every day!

3/26/12 Mike - 2nd

3/27/12 Avi - 6th Christina - 3rd

3/28/12 Marie - 9th Christina - 10th

3/29/12 Marie - 3rd Max - 3rd Andrew - 11th Josh - 17th

And, finally, the first race of the Illinois Cup series, Super Crit highlighted some lessons.

Lesson #1: Always bring extra pairs of everything because it is much colder than predicts

Lesson #2: You are stronger than you think you are

Lesson #3: If you work as a team, you will get amazing team results

Lesson # 4: Don't give up til you cross that line

Lesson #5: When you win a race, you have exactly one obligation: opposed to... (thanks Greg for the photos!)

Womens Open: Daphne -  6th

We'll have a proper writeup for the Inaugural Tour of Galena in a bit, but we came home to find this waiting for us:

You might recall our mention a couple weeks back of Global Gutz, a worldwide simultaneous alleycat. Somehow or another, a fast fellow named Matudo got his hands on an old Cuttin' Crew jersey, and it looks like it brought him some luck. Click through to the video to see some hot Tokyo action.
