Rider Diary: Merco Credit Union Classic, Stage 4 Road Race – By Anthony Canevari, SoCalCycling.com Team

Beeeep! Beeeeep! Beeeeep! The sound of the alarm at 5:30 AM is never too exciting. Although, when it comes to racing I can’t complain. It was the last stage here at the Merco Cycling Classic. The course was 120 miles of mostly flat and some rolling hills. In my past experiences this course usually came down to a field sprint. A few riders would normally get away a lap or so in but be slowly reeled in by the long […]

Rider Diary: Merco Credit Union Classic, Stage 3 Criterium – By Anthony Canevari, SoCalCycling.com Team

What a day! After dinner with my wonderful host family (that they prepared, cooked, and served for me) I contacted my coach Ashley Knights and talked with him about today’s criterium. It was a .9 mile course with a semi technical and somewhat bumpy terrain. I told him how I was feeling and expressed what I thought was best for me for the race.

I definitely could improve on it, but tend to focus on other natural capabilities when training. Time trialing takes a great amount of patience, practice, and tons of experience on how your body works. […]

My SoCalCycling.com Team Manager Frank Sarate was making sure everything went easy for me before the start of the race, bottles ready, wheels ready, he even helped pin on my number. Well, we lined up and the race got […]

Rider Diary: Boulevard Road Race – By Anthony Canevari, SoCalCycling.com Team

It’s that time of the year again. For me, the Boulevard Road Race was always the first race of the season. The Boulevard Road Race is never a easy race. It has always had a great turn out of well rounded riders and this year had a really good field of riders. The USA National Team had 10+ riders, CashCall Mortgage had 10 riders and there were some other talents in the field like Optum Pro Cycling p/b KBS teammates […]
