This is a bit delayed but some TLE members had spectacular results a week ago at the Mount Wood Challenge put on by WVMBA. Steve Twining (as usual) dominated the Men’s pro/expert field, earning a solid 1st place. Joe L. had a solid ride finishing 8th, and John Proppe finished 12th in his first race of the season. The success didn’t stop there for Lake Effect. Rudy Sroka finished 3rd in the 45+ expert field. Julie Sroka finished 6th in the Women’s expert field.

These results show just how deep Lake Effect’s team is. The team continuously earns top positions in road, mountain, and cyclocross races, in both the Men’s and Women’s fields.

Look for us at the Races at the Lake series this Saturday in Munroe Falls.

Ryan and Ian finished 7th and 14th respectively in their field.

This weekend members head to the the Zanesfield road race in hope of some podium finishes. John Proppe is even rumored to be heading south to show the world his mountain biking skills in the Mountainwood race.

I will try to keep this as brief as possible. TLE members raced in multiple locations this weekend with some great results. Many members headed up to Michigan for Barry Roubaix on Saturday. It was a muddy affair, causing speeds to be much slower than in years previous. Rudy and Julie Sroka both made the […]

Todd Bolgrin generously hosted two Ohio TLE members last weekend for the first races of the season. Ian Broadhead and Eddy Wright made the treacherous drive down south to get some good trainings and some early racing in. The team rode hard in an unquestionably unadvantageous part of the country this time of the year […]

2012 was a terrific year for cycling in northeast Ohio and Team Lake Effect was in the mix for all of it. We began racing in January with a top placing by Jeff Craft in the National Cyclocross Championships in Madison, WI.  John Proppe wowed the crowd bunny hopping the barricades in the Elite race.  […]
