Dear BMR sponsors,

For the past five years now, I have finished each cyclocross sesason and thought it went so well, we'd never be able to improve on such solid results. Well, this year was yet again, another such season compared to the last. Maybe it's the development of skills over time, maybe it's experience and perseverance, or maybe it's just that the otherwise fickle cyclocross gods, are simply smiling upon us. Whatever the reason, this has been another unbelievable banner year for Blackmarket Racing.
Internationally, Trina astounded us with another silver medal winning ride at the Masters Cross World Championships in Mol, Belgium. You can find the detailed race report here, and see how it ended up being one of, if not the closest race of the day. While the team was "representin' " in Belgium, single speed master Pat Schott was killing it here at home. Pat wrapped up the Central Coast CX series with overall victory, as well as put in another stunning ride to defend his title at the Santa Cruz County CX Championships, held on the infamous fairgrounds circuit locally, in Watsonville.
We are taking a much deserved rest period before starting to train for the Spring mountain bike season. I want to personally thank all those sponsors that supported us in our finest cyclocross season to date. Without the level of generous sponsorship we have been afforded, we couldn't produce the kind of results we've achieved this season.

Thank you all for your continued support of Blackmarket Racing.
