2018-Lots of fun things are happening in cycling, we are one of them. Now is the time that people start looking for new teams or their very first team. If that is you, then welcome to AMR. We accept all levels of riders. We do have a few asks for every member, from don't fling poo (monkey joke) to participate in at least two events as an Angry Monkey.
So what is new for 2018-
The idea of a blog and posting updates is awesome. The practice of updating a blog and posting updates is, not as much awesome. It isn't because we haven't been busy. We have been out and about at races, leading group rides and just having good old fashion fun. Below are some images of AMR Members who have been out and about the past few months, but didn't always get a full post update.
Hard work pays off. Leading up to the event AMR members put in countless hours working on the course prep & volunteering for the thousands of people who would be out that weekend in September. From raking, to sawing, removing stumps, course marshals, beer sales, clean up and more, we helped make it happen, which makes us proud. Biggest shout out is to AMR member Carl Bakker who led all the volunteers for the event. His hard work shows. The team had a great showing at the race too. See the slide show below. We had a number of teammates racing and here is the list of racers:
Brandon Andrews, Laura Andrews, Chris Brown, Heather Gregoire, Liz Horning, Casey Kohner, David Lieck, Jesus Sanchez, Nico Schifano, Jeff Schifano, Storm Schmitt, Dustin Morfey, Mike Van Dyke, Brianne Van Dyke, Heidi Zepeda and Julie Saler* &Travis Saler* who race with Trek CXC team, but also support AMR.
Hincapie Sportswear has been a long supporter of Angry Monkeys Racing. We love the kits that they help design and produce. As such we want to support them. The Gran Fondo Hincapie is one of their larger events and a fantastic event to attend. This year it will be on October 21 in Greenville South Carolina. Though Gran Fondo Hincapie is, at its essence, about picturesque, challenging rides alongside cycling pros, it’s also about the events that surround these rides. From the Celebrity Chef Dinner to the Warehouse Sale and the Family Fest, these events, along with the unforgettable rides, culminate in the ultimate cycling experience for cyclists, family, and friends. Check it out and tell them an Angry Monkey sent you! -AMR #RIDEAMR
