Le team bvsport loire est aussi performant en course FFC. Nicolas Fritsch (ucvoiron) et Nicolas Raybaud (ucmontmeyran) participaient ce week-end au Circuit de la Drôme des Collines.

Félicitation à Nico Fritsch qui s'impose au classement du meilleur grimpeur et 4e du classement général final. 

"Why are our midweek rides so hellish?"

That’s what Chris asked me today, as we rode head first into the tail end of the remains of hurricane Katia. That makes it actually seem more dramatic than it was, the winds weren’t anywhere near as bad as yesterday, but we’re still talking around 20mph, with stronger gusts. Obviously though we don’t have weather like today’s every time we meet up for a midweek ride. 

My only response was that it must be down to our differing riding styles. I have a penchant for lumpy rides. I don’t quite put myself down as a grimpeur, I’m not that skinny and fast up hills though. I am however not a rouleur, unlike Chris. So the fact that when we meet up we tend to push each other on our weaknesses adds to the pain at the end. I think it’s probably magnified by our shared love for pushing the big gears, not the smoothest method of riding, but sure as hell the way to feel the ride. 

Today’s ride exemplified our rides, undulating but with plenty of gradual and fast downhill segments, where the power of a rouleur comes to the fore. No real long steep climbs, but a fair few lumpy hill climbs to power out of the saddle up. So that’s why our midweek rides are so hellish.
