Introducing the Board - 2016 Edition

In the off-season, a number of changes happen here in the PNW Cycling community - it's that time of year trackies start the perilous path of "logging miles" (sitting on the couch wearing chamois with football on all while glaring menacingly at your long-dormant indoor trainer counts, or so I've heard). Perhaps most importantly for the MVA is the annual changing of the guard for our Board Members.

Jerry Baker - Remembering and Building on a Legacy

There isn't much else we can add about Jerry Baker and the lasting impact he has had on the entire Cycling community here in the Pacific Northwest that hasn't already been said. All that knew him are quick to remember his quiet determination, his relaxed manerism, his great smile, and his incredible passion for all things cycling. Jerry was also known as an advocate for all to ride, especially young people.

2016 Gear Restriction

Kevin Mansker, Project London - 257rpm intervals

For the 2015 and 2016 season the Marymoor Board of Directors, Program Director, Race Commitee along with the support of our local officials have decided to enforce a gear restriction for all Category 4 and 5 Men and Women. This gear restriction is going to be a 48x15, roughly an 86 inch gear, and more specifically a roll out of 22'3". Before you jump up and down in excitement I would like to fill you in on the reasons we made this decision.
