What an amazing year of racing!!! I'm so thankful for this year in so many ways!!

-2014 19-29 XC-1 Florida State Champion

-2014 Most Improved Rider

I have been so fortunate to have the love and support of my amazing girlfriend Elizabeth Rodriguez who one her own award for best supporting cast!! She has been with me from my first race last year and hasn't missed an event since!! I couldn't have done it without her!!

I started last season as a first timer and decided to race sport class 19-29 getting 2nd overall. Then this year moving straight to XC-1 19-29 and racing with the big boys, it has been a HUGE learning experience to say the least!!!

I am so grateful and humbled by the whole thing. I want to thank all of the riders and the whole Elite class for welcoming me and making me suffer while teaching me how it's all supposed to work!!!

Thanks so so so much to my team ID ANGEL McCarty Racing and Stradalli Cycle for all the support and my amazing red Carbon Stradalli 29er!!!!! Thanks to all my teammates Bob McCarty Kathy Russell Randy Egues Andres Barrero Daniel Negas Ethan Negas!!! Thanks so much too Coach Robert Smith for all the help throughout the year!!! If you wanna get faster this is who to go to!!Also big thanks for Julian DaSilva andDwayne Adams for keeping my ride up to speed!!! :-))

Our guys doing  the 1st stage of Titan 300 on their carbon Stradalli R7 Road Bikes. The day started with freezing conditions. 10 thousand feet of climbing with some 20% grade.

105 miles later Grant Potter had a blast with his 2 faithful domestiques. Dragging and pushing him over climbs. Now time for them to reload for tomorrow at The Mellow Mushroom in Greenville, SC two large pizzas. Pretty sure they'll regret it when they are about to do tomorrow's 1st climb.

Some amazing roads with colorful leaves falling from the trees.

Today was one of the best cycling days in Manisalez Colombia, perfect weather and amazing views.
Tom told us it was great but he though Cesar Grajales was trying to kill him on the crazy fast downhill sections and the technical parts of today's ride.
The guys finish up the day with a 2 km 24% climb back home to Manisalez.
Not sure if Tom was so happy about that :)

Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle Wins the NCC Overall Team Competition!

 
Erica Allar- 2nd Place - USA Cycling Professional Criterium National Championships


High Point, NC - Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle competed in the USA Cycling Professional Criterium National Championships this past Saturday afternoon in High Point, NC. This was the second consecutive year the National Championships have been held in High Point, which offers some unique features never seen in a crit course. This year's race was on a new, 0.95-mile course that once again started and finished at the covered Mendenhall Transportation Terminal. In the early laps of the race Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle traded blows with United Health Care (UHC) at attacking the peloton.  Each team attempted to send a rider up the road, but was unsuccessful, until Team Colativa/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle's Mary Zider attacked the field.  Zider was able to get away from other riders that attempted to go with her, and ended up on a solo break that reached a gap of nearly 15 seconds.  Zider's move forced the UHC riders to  move to the front of the peloton and chase her down.  Once Zider was caught, UHC's Alison Powers countered with a solo move of her own.  Many riders remembered Powers winning last year's race out of a break, so her move was quickly brought back.  Multiple attacks continued to fire off the front of the race making it a very exciting and animated race as moves by the top teams would continue to dwindle down the field.  Inside of 25 laps, Alison Powers threw out another vicious attack.  This time she was marked by Mary Zider glued to her wheel as she launched out of the peloton. Inside of 20 laps Power and Zider continued to drive their break remaining away from the field for nearly 10 laps and building a nearly 20 second gap.  Several teams moved riders to the front and began chipping away at the Zider/Powers time gap.  After a determined effort by the field Zider and Powers were pulled back with just over 10 laps to go.  In the closing laps of the race the heat and intensity of the race, coupled with the additional 30 minutes of racing (this was a 90 minute crit compared to the typical 60 minute) the field had been dwindled down to a small group of approximately 25 riders.  Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle demonstrated their prowess by animating the race at every chance possible.  Whitney Shultz was able to sprint out and grab a late race prime worth $500!  Jessica Prinner and Jen Purcell worked tirelessly in the closing laps to cover moves that allowed Erica Allar to challenge for the sprint finish.




Mary Zider (with Alison Powers) drives the break



The race was thrown a curve ball with 3 laps to go as reigning champion Alison Powers, Tina Pic, Mary Zider and other riders were caught in an untimely crash in turn 1.  The crash caused chaos for many teams, but Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle's remaining riders protected  Allar, who remained upright and in good position n her Stradalli R7 to tackle the final laps. Out of the final corner Allar positioned herself well and sprinted like a demon, only to be nipped at the line.  Allar's efforts made for a very close and exciting finish, all while grabbing the team an impressive 2nd place finish at the USA Cycling Criterium National Championships.

Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle finally sealed the deal on winning the National Criterium Calendar (NCC) Overall Team Standing competition.  The team was able to capture the team competition with one race left on the calendar, the TD Bank Mayor's Cup, in Boston, MA on September 20. Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle ended the calendar with 1,835 points followed by United Health Care in second place with 1,365 points. Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle dominated the NCC competition with Erica Allar winning the Individual Competition with her Stradalli R7 by a large margin over second place finisher Tina Pic of Fearless Femme.

Up next for Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle is the last stop on the NCC, the TD Bank Mayor's Cup, on September 20th in downtown Boston, MA.

Meet Dalli

Share
Shield
Today was a beautiful day in Manizalez, Colombia, not only because of its pure landscapes, but because Cesar Grajales and Tom Steinbacher had an opportunity to help a stray dog find it's way! "On the road" is the English translation of Stradalli which was instrumental in choosing a suiting name for their soon to be friend. As soon as they seen him they decided to stop the car to take a closer look, he was roaming aimlessly around the winding route we were driving. "Dalli" looked like he needed some TLC and they were about to get the job done! It took 20 minutes, the guys, a local neighborhood, and some crackers to coax him into the car, but their collected efforts soon prevailed and he was soon seated in the back seat of the car. They attempted to find his home, but were unsuccessful. Cesar and Tom knew that something needed to be done for Dalli and brought him in for a much needed bath, medical attention, and a cool new leash! Cesar spoke to the Vet and after $200.00 Dalli was a clean, healthy, and loving little guy! Tom even had the privilege of taking him for the initial walk on his new leash =) Currently, Tom and Cesar have him in the rented apartment which may or may not allow animals... no one is entirely sure at this point =)
Now all they need is to find someone willing to adopt Dalli within the next two weeks because they are returning home on September 1.

If anyone knows of a good home in the Manizalez area and would like to help that would be greatly appreciated! The guys will even personally deliver him to you!






August 15th, 2014

Hey everyone

The first problem we had was that the bikes for Cesar Grajals and Thomas Steinbacher ended up getting over charged by FedEx. Then they ended up being held by German customs. As well as all the clothing that was packed for the riders, marketing articles and shirts also ended up in impound in Germany.  A great start to our Euro trip. No bikes, it’s raining, its cold and a tax bill with a note saying  to meet us at customs in Pirmasens Germany .
When Tom landed He got an email that Cesar had his entry into the country denied by Lufthansa, after American Express told us all is set with his passport and green card for reentry into USA. Cesar ended up going to the Austria consulate ‎in Denver, Colorado and it was closed. This delayed Cesar a whole day. And with Tom was fighting with German customs, they missed the start in Austria for World Cup. And if you miss the prologue start you cannot qualify for the overall race win. So now sitting in Germany and it’s about 50 degrees and it’s raining, and raining, and raining.
Not a problem they figured. Let’s just get out of here. All they need to do is to change the flight tickets back but Lufthansa said because of law (blah blah) ‎Tom cannot return for minimum of 7 days.
So they called American Express. And because Tom is a good client of 16 years they will help but because all the tickets and fine print it will cost almost more money than the original 2 way ticket. So no matter how they do it or try it doesn't work. So far, not the most perfect trip.  The day of Tom’s flight to Germany he booked tickets for Cesar and himself to Columbia on August 27th for a business meeting on the 28th. While Tom was waiting for the email confirmation from Amex he was on the phone with Amex supervisors were informing Tom of the flight and of course that was also booked wrong (now at this point, just  imagine Tom’s heart rate with a long distance phone bill)
While this was going on Tom also was trying to get an appointment with the German customs in his home town Pirmasens. Tom was about to lose his mind and was 2 steps away from getting arrested. German customs is run very black and white, never thinking outside of the box. They finally gave Tom his bike. They inspected his USED bicycles and then charged Double Taxes claiming that they are new bicycles. Then realized they were wrong and approved that the bikes are in fact USED and that they over charged him. It only took them an hour to realize this. But now they want Tom to go to Koln which is 350km away and fill out a form for their mistake and not ride the bikes, but to ship them back and maybe, just maybe, Tom can get his money back for the overcharge on the taxes. Sounds like a joke, but it’s not. Tom is stuck in Germany with not allowed to ride his bikes, Missed the World Cup race, it’s raining none stop, and it’s freaking cold out. And on top of that, German customs also tagged his bike with an official seal stamped on his bike, which they stated he cannot ride it with the seal on the bike. This has to be a joke.  The response from customs was “what can you do?” likes it’s a out of there hands.
Finally Amex called back and the rep says “ok I have multiple solution, let's look at them quickly because it is almost 5.30 and my shift is over soon”, OMG what the F@#% is this a hidden camera show?
Tom’s options are, He waits 7 days in Germany and they can give me a free exchange flight, but I have to pay exchange rate. Or Tom buys a new one way for more than originally 2 way. or in 5 days Tom can fly for a little cheaper or Amex can refund my money for the messed up Colombia flight (there messed up but Tom can say thanks for fixing it and giving MY own money back) or option number 4 Tom can get his Colombia flight money back and he can give Tom a super cheap flights directly to Columbia and also can change Cesar tickets for free by using the refund money to pay for it. So now Tom is flying Saturday with my bikes (with German tax seal on it) to Columbia and because He cannot go to Koln to the tax office and because he want to ride my bikes He cannot get his tax money back. How the heck after Tom explained 12 times to the customs people that Tom rides, sells eats, sleeps, bicycles they put a German seal on the bike and says just wait till the paperwork is done and the bikes go back to the USA (MAYBE) Tom is absolutely speechless about the thinking process of some people, how do you live in such a box. Now Tom finds out that the hotel in Austria also refuses to refund his money or even refused to refund partial money. So now Tom will be stuck in Colombia for 12 days till my meeting on the 28th.
But life sometimes doesn't always go your way but as long as you can smile you’ll be fine.
Today is the first day they have a small break from the rain and Tom get dressed and walk out the door and boom, full blown rain AGAIN, ok back in the house and have coffee number 6.
About an hour later a little sun so now Tom said “Forget this I'm going”. With 3 shirts and jacket off he go. Awesome fun ride around his mom’s house back to my old neighborhood. But here we go again with more bad luck. A landslide and the road was closed. Tom just smiled and said “great trip”. He turned around and only knew the highway route so he ask a friendly German guy and his daughter, she looks at me and say “Hey you’re Tom from Florida we watched your show” and they all laughed Tom’s new friends said “no no go around this way it's longer and uphill but no cars and a fun road little rough but nice”. So Tom say thanks and smiles and go up this rough road he is right nice quite and fun, bad road but good, 30 min later up hill road turns into gravel and mud , Tom look around, nice woods and fields. But no paved road so back to square one. All Tom can think about all that happened in 3 days and smile and laugh it off. Finally he stopped a car and get good none gravel directions, now on his way home. A fun ride but guess what?  45 min away from home here it comes again, Rain and more rain even more rain.

Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli cycle Continues to Shine!
Olivia Dillon takes Sprinter Points Jersey in Tour of Utah!



Mary Zider, Lenore Pipes, Jen Purcell, and Erica Allar - Iron Hill Twilight Cycling Criterium


Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli cycle toed the line at two separate races this past weekend and walked away with solid results in both events.  The east coast squad took to the line on the historical downtown streets of West Chester, PA as part of the Iron Hill Twilight Criterium this past Saturday evening. From the gun Team Colavita/Fine Cooking was ready to make their presence known with Erica Allar stringing out the peloton from the gun as she took the USA Crit's signature opening prime lap. From that moment on the team meant business gobbling up prime after prime, having representation in every breakaway attempt, and not allowing a rider to get away unmarked. It wasn't until 12 laps to go that Mary Zider's attack would be "the break". Along with Zider, other teams represented were Mellow Mushroom, Fearless Femme, and FCS Rouse.  The small break away worked to create a gap in excess of one minute on the field.   Ultimately the break ended up lapping the field at the beginning of the last lap which took the peloton 2 laps to go to 1 lap to go. This breakaway was instantly swallowed up by the peloton making for a very confusing finish!  Zider attempted to find her way through the chaotic peloton, narrowly missing out on a podium spot with a solid fourth place finish. 

On Monday afternoon the west coast squad lined up to contest the Cedar City Grand Prix which included a strong field of sprinters along with the reigning road and time trial national champion.  The four-corner bicycle criterium circuit in downtown Cedar City, UT with a slight uphill finish and strong winds made for an aggressive and challenging day of racing. Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/ Stradalli cycle’s small but strong roster of riders consisting of Lindsay Bayer, Olivia Dillon, Whitney Schultz, and guest rider Anna Grace Christensen raced aggressively throughout, focusing on leading Dillon out to earn sprint points on the three interim sprint laps with her Stradalli Carbon RP14 . The team was represented in key breaks and worked hard to set up for a strong finish. In the end, it was a great day - Dillon placed fifth in the field sprint after a leadout from the team and captured the sprint jersey.
Great amazing race weekend with fantastic results for team Colavita/Fine Cooking/ Stradalli cycle



Olivia Dillon - Winner of Sprinters Jersey at Tour of Utah


The west coast squad will continue racing at the Tour of Utah Women's Edition on Wednesday, August 6th

A pleasant surprise was yesterday Alejandro Ruiz. He was cited at 7:00 am to the cycling track in Manizales Colombia , but did not know why.
Cycling Coach, Jhon Jairo Narvaez, chose Alejandro Ruiz for a new Stradalli carbon frame brought by Thomas Tom Steinbacher owner and CEO of Stradalli cycle, and cycling legend Cesar Grajales who came to the city to train week in the mountains and to pitch in and help the kids in need with some training tips , rides and some free Stradalli products.

Junior cyclist Alejandro Ruiz  "I am very grateful, I needed it and hopefully this will help me in my cycling future ," said the young racer, who is gaining ground in the midst of difficulties and economic times.

. "It's a pleasure and honor to help and contribute in some way to improve the lives of these young riders," said Thomas Tom Steinbacher, CEO - Stradalli cycle

Meanwhile, Cesar Grajales, who led the charitable cause, was also happy: "One lived many difficulties and how to help now that we have, we do."
Grajales came to town and made several upgrades to the Gualí, 4000 meters high above sea level, he is preparing for the Leadville 100 , largest MTB race in USA.

Besides the frame given to Ruiz, Stradalli also gave them sports equipment to four other junior riders:
Juan José Amador and Sebastian Ortegon, Manizales; Felipe Adrián Granada and Jordan Ramirez, Neira.

LA PATRIA | Manizales

César Grajales es de aquellos ciclistas sin límites. Fue de los primeros ciclomontañistas que tuvo Caldas, pero se mantuvo en la ruta, la que después lo lanzó al profesionalismo en Estados Unidos.
En suelo norteamericano, con el paso de los años, ha mezclado la ruta con el ciclomontañismo. La semana pasada, con el grupo deportivo de Colavita - Stradalli, logró la segunda colocación en la Leadville Silver Rush 50 Mountain Bike Race.
"Esta competencia es clasificatoria a Leadville 100, la carrera más grande de MTB en EE.UU., que se corre siempre por encima de los 3 mil metros de altura sobre el nivel del mar", cuenta César desde suelo estadounidense.
César ha participado en esta competencia los dos últimos años, quedando décimo y quinto: "Espero hacer una mejor actuación y subir al podio".

Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle continues their win streak, grabbing 2 wins over the 3 day race weekend at the Intelligentsia Cup Prairie State Cycling Series in Waukegan, IL. The first victory of the weekend came on Day 1 when the team lined up for the Vista Health System Waukegan Criterium. Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle showed complete dominance over the field and controlled the race over the 60 minutes, never allowing any attacks from other teams to get away.  On the final lap of the race the Colavita train was well positioned to easily deliver sprint specialist Erica Allar for her first win of the weekend.  Saturday's race, the Northwestern Medicine Lake Bluff Criterium, was the crown jewel of the weekend for Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle as it was the 12th stop on the NCC.  Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle continues to lead the individual and team classification standings. The 1.4K course in downtown Lake Bluff consisted of narrow roads with a tight final 180 degree turn before heading into a long, rising uphill drag to the finish.  Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle was once again an active participant in the race, ensuring no dangerous moves got away unless it consisted of the right rider combinations that were advantageous to the team's chance of winning.  A late race move saw Mary Zider explode for a prime, which allowed her to keep going up the road, while being joined by Pepper Palace's Sarah Fadar.  The two riders were able to maintain a sizable lead and put a bit of pressure on the opposing team's sprinters.  However, it was not enough to stick as the break of two was brought back in the closing laps of the race.  Once the break was caught, it became clear the finish would come down to a field sprint.  The finishing power stretch proved to be right in Allar's wheel-house as she captured her second victory of the weekend.

In the final race of the weekend Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle went into the Tour de Crystal Lake with high confidence after winning the previous two races on the weekend.  The team raced hard and smart, controlling much of the race, but as bike racing goes, things don't always go as planned.  An unlucky final lap caused Allar to finish in a hard fought fourth place. Erica Allar ended the 3 day weekend leading the Prairie State Cycling Series Overall.

Stradalli Cycle, the high performance carbon bicycle manufacturer, is pleased to announce that professional cyclist Bob McCarty will be riding a Stradalli full carbon 29er mountain bike during the 2014 UCI MTB Masters World Championships in Norway. McCarty, who turned Pro in 2010, has been the Florida State Champion no less than four times, winning in 1997, 2011, 2012, and 2013. With over 270 race starts, he is currently at the top of his game, feeling strong and ready to race in Norway. As well as being ranked as the number one 40-49 year old in the USA, Bob also recently won the 2014 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA.

“I am in the best shape of my life. This year I will be attending the Nationals in PA., the World Cup in NY., and the World Championships in Norway,” said Robert McCarty. “I will then return to the USA to defend my Florida State Title for a 5th time.”

Bob will be riding a full carbon 29er Stradalli Mountain bike during the championships. The frames on Stradalli’s mountain bikes are made using 100% carbon fiber and have a tensile strength of 50 tons per square cm. This makes the frame strong but light, the ideal combination for mountain biking.

“Bob McCarty is a world class athlete and we are proud that he will be riding one of our bicycles,” said Thomas Steinbacher, CEO of Stradalli Cycle. “I am sure he will do well at the event and it will be great to see him race on a Stradalli.” The 2014 UCI MTB Masters World Championships will be held in Hafjell, Norway. The picturesque village and ski resort is well equipped to host the World Championships and has successfully hosted several World Cup events over the last ten years. The Hafjell Bike Park is one of the leading mountain biking facilities in Europe. The park has 14 trails, covering over 25 km.
