From Wesley at PBE: “Let’s focus on making Boulder about your race and not dealing with the circus afterwards!”

It will much the same as last year in supporting you with picking up your Bikes, T1 and T2 bags. From last year they had placed all bags together ( T1, T2, and Personal ). I will only pick the T1 and T2 this year unless you let me know otherwise when dropping off your claim ticket.

You claim ticket can be dropped at 2480 Canyon Blvd, Ste M-,Boulder, CO 80302 – Between Folsom St and 26th St on Saturday in the morning and afternoon. This way there will be no stress with getting tickets to me when either going of coming from the Boulder Rez. A ZOO last year!

Travel Like You Train for Your Races this Year

By Bill Plock

Racing is stressful and we as triathletes spend an enormous amount of time, energy and money minimizing stresses whether they are the stress of trying to go faster or finish, nourish ourselves or mentally prepare or maybe relieve other stresses by competing. Traveling for a race or camp adds stress and to minimize it can help you feel much more relaxed when you arrive at your venue. Shipping a bike ahead of time rather than transporting it on the plane can be well be worth the investment.

To show up at race check in and have your bike waiting for you ready to ride can be a big mental advantage as there as so many other tasks at hand to race.

Locally, we have Pro Bike Express, owned and operated by Wesley Smith who will pick up your bike from a variety of locations and have it waiting for you at your destination. This is not a unique service, but Wesley is a racer, a Coloradoan and is meticulous with his client’s bikes and needs. Being so ingrained in the community, he knows it’s a small world so he does everything possible to make your experience good.

As Wesley says, “plan your logistics and travel like you do your training”.

Pro Bike Express transports your bike and your race gear for Triathlon, Road, Cyclocross and Mountain Bike races and events.

Here are a few tips from Wes to consider as you begin line up your season:

• If you do travel by plane with your bike, TSA will most likely open the box/bag, make sure things are secure and won’t fall out, especially something critical like pedals or other parts you have removed, you might consider putting those in personal luggage

• Some cabs or rentals won’t accommodate bikes, make sure that is considered and allow for extra costs.

• Storage in hotels can be tight; PBE will store your bike and gear for you.

• Have a plan for your bike and gear for after the race, some services will meet you near the finish.

You can contact him directly anytime for any help with traveling and your bike.

Why we love Pro Bike Express

Whether you’re at Cross Nationals in Vegas, still have a race this season, or are planning logistics for your 2015 season, we at 303 want to make sure you are aware of the superb bike transport services offered by hometown hero Wesley Smith of Pro Bike Express.

In addition to start-to-finish personal attention, including pre-riding each course to advise you on gearing and conditions, here are the reasons you should consider this Colorado-based company for bike transport to your next race:

From the Pro Bike Express web site:

Why should I use Pro Bike Express instead of that “bulk” bike transport company?

  • Less down time from your bike, as we will only transport and support Rocky Mountain cyclists and as many bikes as we have racks for, keeping quality vs. quantity.
  • The same person that picks up your bike and gear is the same when you get to your event.
  • Save money on your car rental size, we store your bike pre and post-race event.
  • You can call us directly and we respond.
  • We don’t herd cattle, limiting the service to those that do not want their bike left in the pouring rain like bulk carriers do. Your bicycle will remain secure and dry in our trailer until such time as you claim it. Your bike is transported in our custom bicycle trailers.

PBE is still transporting this year, to Tahoe, Austin & Tempe. For 2015, the schedule is currently being populated. Email Wesley to make a reservation for future events – he will respond and take care of you pronto.
