Preface

This is our third annual photo book with highlights from the 2018 bicycle racing season: From Central Park to Bear Mountain and beyond, showcasing road races, crits and the world of track. The moments we capture often have a story behind them and we love to feature these stories that complement our photos. We are thankful for this year’s contributing authors who bring our book to the next level.

Contributing Authors

  • Foreword by Peter Taylor, USAC Coach, Co-Executive Director of StarTrack Cycling and Race Dad.

  • Justin Williams, the 2018 US National Amateur Road and Criterium Champion, talks about his first-time experience of racing in Harlem. 

  • Filippo Fortin, an Italian professional cyclist, only has one goal: To win Red Hook Crit.

  • Gabe Lloyd is the voice of The Red Hook Crit and The Valley Preferred Cycling Center who knows everything about the racers and always tries to get the crowd involved.

  • T-Town is a truly special place in June and local Missy Erickson (2016 Olympic Long team and UCI Track World Cup Medalist) and New Zealander Sam Dakin tell us why.

  • If there was one team to beat in New York City this year, it was Jamison Capital Cannondale. Team rider Ross Baldwin reveals some of the key elements that contributed to the success of his team.

  • Trying to balance bicycle racing with a busy family life is a challenge that many people can relate to. Luiz Lanfredi and Sarah Sjöman share their story on how parenthood changed their bike-to-life balance.

  • For Sung Pak the famous Rockleigh Crit is his go-to place for a weekly dose of therapy.

Award Winning Photography

Once a cyclist, always a cyclist. This spectator came out with his cycling friends to watch the races at a local criterium event in Harlem, New York City.

Reflection of intense ‘cat and mouse’ during the UCI sprint tournament at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in Breinigsville, Pennsylvania.

Peter is a USA Cycling Coach, Co-executive Director of the Star Track Youth Program, and proud cycling dad of Billy, an aspiring junior racer. You will find Peter roadside and trackside at races all over the country and abroad supporting riders in whatever weather Mother Nature brings. This photo – taken in subzero temperatures moments before the start of a local New York City Crit – perfectly illustrates this.

Balancing cycling with a busy family life is a challenge that many people can relate to. After Luiz’ daughter Mia was born, it wasn’t easy for him to stick to a structured training program. But that was exactly what he did and not without success: He went on to win the New York State Criterium Championship! However, the best part of this story is that Luiz got to celebrate this highlight with his daughter – a dream come true!
