Physio Racing Team Updates – October 2020

From the President

– Dave Hogue

Hey folks! Wow, I can’t believe it’s already nearing the end of October. Somehow, 2020 has felt like the longest year of my life, and also it keeps slipping away faster and faster. It’s been a busy month behind the scenes for the team! Registration for 2021 is underway with an all-new streamlined process that should be much easier for new and returning team members to navigate. Click here to register with Physio Racing for the 2021 season — we’d love to have you!

This next bit of news is starting to spread, but if you haven’t heard, Physio Racing has a new bike shop partner for 2021 and beyond . . . but before the big reveal, I’d like to take a moment to extend a special thank you to pedal of Littleton for their support since this team launched as pedalRacing 7 years ago. This team would certainly not be the success that it is without their support from the beginning. Bill, Andy, and Lauren thank you (and the rest of the crew) for being awesome.

Now, the bit you’ve been waiting for — Physio Racing is thrilled to announce a partnership with Elevation Cycles for 2021 and beyond! We are excited to begin a new chapter as the team continues to grow. [Wipes brow] Whew! That was a lot from me. Enough housekeeping items, back to the stuff we come here for: bike racing!

Stay safe, wear a mask — we love you!

Shout Out

 
This month’s shout out goes to one of our very own, Stacey Richardson. Our new Physio Racing Secretary has been crushing it lately in more ways than one.

This year, Stacey came back from a knee injury and participated in several CX races, with more on her schedule.

Off the bike, Stacey helped revamp the website registration process in a way that is transparent to registrants and is immensely time-saving for current and future board members. In addition to website updates, Stacey organizes all of our board meetings, taking minutes at each, and does the newsletter!

Speaking as someone who is new to the team and bike racing in general, Stacey is a tremendous resource and always willing to answer questions, and is generally one of the most helpful and nice people you’ll ever meet!
