The Speedvagen Family Racing team is coming to Boulder next week for a team training camp and some early season racing. But, we’re bringing more than just our legs to Colorado.
Cyclocross is at the heart of Speedvagen and The Vanilla Workshop. The first bikes Sacha built for himself and his teammates 15-years ago were all for cross racing and the first Speedvagen he built as a prototype was, you guessed it, a single-speed cross bike. As with others who love the sport, it’s who we are and it’s what comes naturally to us. We love to race cross, and we want to share it with everyone we meet.
Kid’s ‘Cross, skills clinics and course building are just a few of the ways that the Speedvagen Family Racing team gets their hands dirty before the racing ever begins. That’s why in Boulder, Portland, Nobeyama and Austin this year we’ll be creating unique opportunities for the team to introduce people to the sport of cyclocross and feed the fire in those that have already discovered it. Look for the women’s skills clinic at North Boulder Park in Boulder, the Kid’s ‘Cross series at the Cross Crusade and Blind Date at the Dairy in Portland, youth and adult skills clinics around Japan and in Austin.
Below is a schedule of what we’ll be doing and where you can find us! If it’s got an asterisk (*) then it’s a team-only deal but we hope to meet tons of new folks at all of the other events in Portland and Boulder next week!!
