Team camp was a blast this year. We had a good group of Georgia Tech students and alumni show up for team photos and team time trial, individual time trial, and criterium practice.
We started the morning off by taking photos with our sponsor, Bob Hughes (Brilliance Photography), in the ground floor of the newly built school library. After photos wrapped up, we drove up to an industrial park in Marietta, where we met our road coach, Michael Barman. Being a Sunday morning, it was dead quite, and the open roads, with wide corners, were the perfect place for our newer riders to get comfortable leaning it over.
Once we arrived, unpacked, and got kitted up, we warmed up DLV style, with a double paceline. After that, individual time trials were up, followed by team time trials. Individual time trail results can be seen here: 2018 Individual Time Trial Results
At noon, we broke for lunch and got ready for criterium practice. The Kennesaw State University cycling club showed up and threw down with us, as we worked on our cornering and pack finish skills. It was a great opportunity for the new riders on each team to meet each other and get comfortable riding elbow to elbow before the first race of the season kicks at University of Florida.
After camp, we’re feeling sharp and ready to race as we get ready to head down to University of Florida for the Swamp Classic this coming weekend. A big thank you to our road coach Michael Barman and Bob Hugh from Brilliance Photography for making the camp happen. Credit for the photos goes to team rider Eddie Nguyen.
