With the fall comes cyclocross and the 2021 edition of AACX. Clearly there is pent up demand for racing on the backside of the pandemic and AACX had a record turnout of over 300 registrations and 290 unique riders. The weather was sunny, dry and a bit unseasonably warm in the low 80s which made for fast, dusty laps until the last race of the day where it sprinkled a bit with the passing of cold front.
Thanks for all who came out to the second Church Creek TT of the season.

Thanks to the nearly 200 riders that came out for the return to time trial racing for the 2021 Church Creek Time Trial #1. As with many things this year, the weather was a bit atypical with cooler temperatures. Our on-course photographer extraordinaire Ted Morgan captured great shots of the action and they are all available for full resolution download. We compensate him for his photography but offer this as a perk to the racers! The registration for the 2021 Church Creek Time Trial #2 on August 28 will be open soon. Come back and best your time!

Your Time Trial Hosts ABRT and Phase Cycling
We have always had a random collection of jerseys over the years due to excess stock, but recently I ran into a stash of older jerseys. Every few years we do a jersey collection to donate to Bikes for the World. This year, a huge collection of old Team Snow Valley jerseys were included from a few long time members. I guess people must be cleaning out closets during the COVID-19 pandemic!
I took the opportunity to get our stash of jerseys from the ABRT storage unit and fill in the missing years from the donated pile of jerseys. Turns out I was able to fill in almost every year I have seen a jersey, except for the first five years. I am not sure if there was a jersey for the first two unsponsored years (1986-1987). I found jerseys for all but the first five of the Team Snow Valley years (1988-2006), the Latitude (2007-2009), and finally all of the latest ABRT years (2010-2020).
It’s kind of a fun walk down memory lane and since there is no racing or group riding due to the pandemic, might as well record all of the jerseys visually. I was able to match the sponsors with research I’ve done in the past using the internet archive to view old web web sites as well as from team member recollections. It’s also interesting to note how much lighter the materials have gotten over the last 30 years. If I had to indicate a favorite design of all, I think it would be 2017.
If anyone has corrections to my dating, has pictures of other jerseys or even has some that I don’t have please let us know! I think pretty much anyone who was anyone in the 80s and 90s probably wore one of these. Enjoy!
Thanks to all who came out for the quintessential hot and humid August time trail. We had a lot of new racers out today as this edition saw the largest number of one day licenses ever. Great to see so many new people.
