CCC Tuesday Updates – 20161213
December 13, 2016
- Before we get started, Happy Birthday to Dr. Nathan Schneeberger, the man behind the lens of Snowy Mountain Photography!
- Afterglow was a bunch of fun and relaxing. The weather didn’t show up as expected, which was a good thing after Montrose, but the Cuttin’ Crew still knows how to throw a party. Thanks to everyone who race or donated to benefit West Town Bikes & Blackstone Bicycle Works. We also handed off the accumulation of our season long donation collection in the form of $700 each to West Town and Blackstone to help them move forward into 2017. So THANK YOU to everyone who donated this year.
- Tickets are now on sale on BikeReg for this Sunday’s 2016 CCC Awards Party at EJ’s Place in Skokie. Doors open at noon and we’ll be finished by 4pm. Besides the sweet winners’ cowbells we’ll also have prizes provided by SRAM, ABUS, Main St Bikes, The Pony Shop, Smart Bikes Parts, and others. We look forward to seeing you all there.
- Also at the awards party, unfortunately Tyger Johnson will NOT be joining us as he has some family matters to attend to. Still please read about his fantastic story here and we will try to get him out to party next year.
- Speaking of parties, don’t forget Los Borrachos hit the stage at the Elbo Row this Friday at 8pm.
- And finally… it is with great sadness for us but loads of excitement for her that we say goodbye (for now) and safe travels to the CCC’s media coordinator extraordinaire Kelly Clarke as she leaves town and heads West to accept a position at USA Cycling in Colorado Springs, CO. Kelly came to us several years ago saying she wanted to help and be involved in some way. She then proceeded to take over our Twitter feed to capture every.single.podium.ever., write press releases, heard more than a few cats, and do more behind the scenes work than we can remember. We’ll miss you a lot a lot but can’t wait to see the work you’ll do at the national level.
