Angry Monkeys is growing. We need more members to fill the top spots on the team... or just any spots on the team. So far this year we have had gotten new memberships from places like Denver (CO), Athens (GA), Carolina Beach (NC) and more. We are looking for members who are ready to step it up in racing or just riding. Members are asked to participate in at least 2 events (race or charity ride) as an Angry Monkey, but other than that this is a no pressure team, except right now when you need to join us. Take some time and read about us on our About page and the Join page. Deadline to join is March 1st. Our Hincapie Sportswear Kits will be ordered by March 12th so that we can look cool for MTB, CX & just riding along all year.
Not typical cyclocross weather in Wisconsin, however we made the best of the unseasonably warmer temps. High was roughly around 50's for the end of the day. No snow or mud, more of a dusty fast track. The course had lots of great turns, a few off camber areas, two dismounts and a cheeseburger. Yep... Cheeseburger. The women's race even had an award for the first 3 women to jump the cheeseburger. Proudly the first and third racer to do so were our very own Heather and Heidi. Liz had the best podium finish with a second place finish in the Women's 4/5's. Congrats LIZ! Not shown in the photos, Mike Van Dyke & Chris Brown also raced, but it was during races where the photographer didn't get a chance to take photos. Also a few shots of Brandon racing his second race of the day in Single Speed fashion with a Wrestling mask on to please the promoters and their wrestling theme event. Hopefully more photos to come. Again lots of fun to partially end the season. The Mid West Championships will be held tomorrow in Sun Prairie.
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.
