Dear BMR sponsors,

The team is really on a roll now. With addition of Mark Abele, we now have two riders in each of the Elite 35+ race, the Elite 45+ race, and representation in the women's categories. Everyone has someone to work with and fall back on in the heat of the event, taking the pressure off any one rider to show for our sponsors.

I was finally able to crack the code, and find a small chink in the armor of the California Gaint Strawberry juggernaut to seal the deal at CCCX #3. Janel had a breakthrough ride on her new cross sled to nearly win the Velo Bella/Surf City psycho cross Halloween event in the 35+ women's race. Trina is consistently knocking on the door of the top 3 in the Elite Women's events. Bruce has been chained to a fire in Southern California for the past two weeks.

All in all, the team is having a spectacular season. We look forward the the next Bay Area Super Prestige event at McLaren Park, near the Cow Palace in San Francisco, where most, if not all of the Blackmarket contingent should be whipping up the pace at the front of their respective groups.

Thank you all for your continued support of Blackmarket Racing.

Mark "Howie" Howland
Team Director
