The Corning/NoTubes Race Team put some riders on the podiums at the 2012 Whitney Point Lakefest after battling tough competition and high heat during the race. In the 50 mile race, Jeremy Wickham took the overall win, after an impressive ride! In the 26-mile event, Nate Foster was 2nd overall, but first in his age group (30-39). Randy Rhoads came in just outside the top 10 in 12th, while finishing 7th in the 50+ age group. Close behind was Steve Burdette, who was 21st and 11th in the same age group. And impressive rides by Sara Foster for the win and Helene Schmid for 3rd place topped off the Women's podium! Great races by all team members and please see the results attached as PDFs below!
For those who are fans of the Corning/NoTubes Race Team, you should know that we have a very active presence in the country of Poland! In a group that now numbers almost 10 riders, there is great enthusiasm for the sport and a few now race consistently both on and off road. Take a look at some of the pictures below and even a video from a local criterium, with the Blue, Yellow and White flashing by at speed!
And finally the Youtube video of the race, Tour de Powiat, featuring Marcin (finished 6th) and Wojciech (finished 3rd):
Anyone traveling to Strykow, Poland is welcome to come on the weekly rides with the group. Contact the team president for further details!
Hello Cycling Community,
I want to announce that after our initial interest meeting yesterday afternoon, our Junior Development Program for the Corning/NoTubes Race Team is officially kicked off! A number of interested parents and youth participants gathered to learn about the program in the upcoming year, ask questions and meet each other. The enthusiasm and energy is exciting to see! I know that a number of pre-registered families and participants were unable to make the meeting due to family commitments, but we would like to get you the information presented at the meeting and gather your contact information as we start planning events and skills clinics. Please see the Junior's page on the Corning/NoTubes Race Team website below for how to get in touch with us.
Thank you for your support and to our event hosts Bob Nunnink and Vanessa McCaffery!

We’d like to thank everyone for attending the 4th Annual Corning Circuit Race. Each year we strive to provide racers with a high quality racing experience – a great course, well organized and scored races, and excellent prizes. We hope this year we did not disappoint.
Of course we always encounter the unexpected – whether it’s a Motoref who’s forced to cancel the night before the event, a tough security guard who held some of our participants up at the front gate, or an awards presentation where Victory Lane was locked – but in general we hope you had a unique and enjoyable experience that you will talk about for years to come.
The Southside Community Center and Corning Area Youth Center will be receiving donations from the Gears for the Tiers Charitable Fund (the CCR race charity) as a result of your participation, which will assist in providing programs to the area’s youth.
In an effort to reduce the volume of emails sent out to everyone, we will be posting the link to the race photos on our Facebook page and Twitter feed. We expect that they will be available before the end of the week. Please Like or Follow us there (links on the race website homepage)!
Once again, Thank You for participating in the 2011 Corning Circuit Race! We hope to see you next year and please spread the word!

Calling all cyclists! The 4th edition of the Corning Circuit Race is set to
take place on *Saturday, June 25th* at Watkins Glen International racetrack,
and we would love to have you come out and race. Held at a premier venue
that received high praise from participants last year, the track offers a
challenging 3.4 mile circuit with wide open smooth roads like you won't find
anywhere else. We made some changes to the race this year, namely updating
the category mix and changing the race lengths due to feedback we received
last year from racers, so we know you are going to like it! Courtesy of a
grant from NYSBRA, we are once again offering free entry to 2011 NYS Road
Race Champions (crowned at Bristol Mountain this past May) by contacting the
race committee via BikeReg. All of the race information including the flier
and revised categories is available on our race website:

In continuing our tradition of giving back to the community, the proceeds
from the race will benefit two local children's community centers in Elmira
and Corning. We would like to thank our current sponsors of Corning
Incorporated, Notubes, Simmons-Rockwell, EZ Budget Insurance, Hammer
Nutrition, and NYSBRA for supporting our event for another year.
We hope to see you at the 2011 Corning Circuit race!
The Corning/Notubes Race Team is all set to host the race on Saturday. All of the volunteers are ready, prizes are set, and everything is ready to go! Weather also looks like it is going to be good with the bad conditions staying out of our way. Come out and join us!
As 2010 comes to a close, it's a good time to reflect on the things that we have accomplished and the year we have had with cycling here in the Southern Tier. In particular, the Corning Race Team has had a very successful year. A year-end review for the team was written back in November, which you can read here if you missed it previously: http://icycle.org/pipermail/bhv_icycle.org/2010-November/011732.html The Corning Race Team would particularly like to extend a big Thank You to our previous year's sponsors. The following organizations have supported the team in 2010: Corning Incorporated Ziff Law Firm Stan's NoTubes Scott Ouderkirk Studios Cameron Manufacturing and Design Kingsbury's Cyclery Mark A. Roman, DMD and Michael F. Ferchaw, DMD Dave Hansen Plumbing, Inc. Finger Lakes Endodontics, LLP Rudy Project David Shirmer DDS Corning Bike Works Hammer Nutrition Simmons Rockwell Nancy A. Socha & Associates, LLC Trek Pure Bliss Bodywork Watkins Glen International Many of the discounts on products, cycling events, charitable functions and the high quality cycling uniforms and apparel worn by team members would not have been possible without the support of these fine organizations! Once again, please join us in expressing gratitude to our supporters and sponsors and everyone have a safe and Happy New Year!
