Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

Ft. Davis Hammerfest

On April 4-5, this year's Hammerfest took place out in Ft. Davis. It was a two day, three event race consisting of a hill climb, a time trial, and a road race. One of our local riders, Jason Frazee, participated and did quite well! The first event was a 16 mile hill climb up to the McDonald Observatory. For those of you who have not been out there before, it is quite a climb! Jason finished 13th out of about 50 riders in Cat 5 in that event. Later that day, he placed 8th in the 16 mile time trial. I hear the winds were gusting around 35-40 mph during that event. On the second day, Jason WON the road race. He ended up placing tenth overall in GC. Way to go, Jason!

Here's a link to a cool picture of Jason crossing the finish line of the road race:

Congrats again, Jason. Can't wait to hear how your next race goes.
