Rock Racing

I’m intrigued by the Rock Racing team. I usually get tons of press releases from somebody associated with a team proclaiming how good they are, who they hired, etc. But I don’t know a lot about this team. Okay, that’s not entirely true. I know Kyle from interviewing him a few years ago. And the same with Bahati. I’ve met David Clinger once at the Red Bull Road Rage in 2005. Rock & Republic, their title sponsor, sent ROAD several cool black t-shirts which will improve my wardrobe above my free bike industry and ROAD shirts that over-populate my closet. I do think their logo looks cool, if that counts for anything. It’s a skull with wings behind it. Very edgy. I also heard that each day they changed jersey colors. One day it was black, the next white. I’ve seen a picture of Clinger in a red jersey when the rest of the team was in black. I’m guessing Clinger didn’t get the memo that it was ‘black jersey’ day. According to my source, these guys rolled up to Valley of the Sun in Cadillac Escalades, which is a nice change of pace from a team RV. I’m going to keep an eye on them and see how they do. I’m guessing they’ll be at Redlands, so it will be interesting.
