Thomas Jondall

Hello, 

My name is Thomas Jondall, I'm 18 years old and I race for Landis/Trek White Mountain Road Club. I've recently been selected to race in Europe with the US Junior National Team. The team will be racing some Kermesses in Belgium and then go to Italy for the Giro della Lunigiana UCI 2.1 and Giro di Basilicata UCI 2.1. It has been an exciting year for me and I’m looking forward to this new challenge.
 
After a lot of racing in AZ this spring I took part in the USA Cycling Regional Camp in Flagstaff AZ.  I had a very good camp and in the end I was the #1 rider. Because of this result and a 3rd place at the U.S Junior National Time Trial Championship, I was selected to race with the U.S National team in the six-stage Tour de l'Abitibi in Canada. There I was able to help my teammate pick up the best young rider and sprint jerseys. Along with helping him I was the highest-placed rider for the US team in the overall classification in 6th place. Based on my teamwork and result at the Tour de l'Abitibi was invited on this European project.
 

Scottsdale Cycling Festival - Criterium 10/2/2010

Landis/Trek (WMRC) ridersThe idea to add a day of criterium racing to the north Scottsdale cycling scene came from Brian Lemke, a Cave Creek resident who rides with the Landis Cyclery-Trek team. Lemke saw a gap between the Tour de Scottsdale's Thursday night party and Sunday ride and came to organizers with his plan.

 

The criterium will be held on Saturday, October 2nd.

More than two thousand cyclists from around the Valley and around the nation are expected at the Scottsdale Cycling Festival this fall. For the first time, the popular 7th Annual 70-mile Tour de Scottsdale citizen’s race that benefits the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy will be paired with a Criterium, adding an exciting competitive element for cyclists and spectators alike.

Register online at RacePlaceEvents.com. Online registration closes on Wednesday Sept. 29 at 11:59 p.m. (PST). Citizen cyclists must obtain one-day, $10 license.  Late Registration is available at 7 a.m. on Saturday at the Expo; a $10 Late Fee applies to all entries received on or after Oct. 1.

 

ADOT Bicycle Safety Action Plan: Public Input Survey Available

The Arizona Department of Transportation is developing a Bicycle Safety Action Plan to reduce the number of bicycle-related crashes, injuries, and fatalities on state highways.

One of the most important steps toward creating the Bicycle Safety Action Plan is to document the perspectives, concerns, and input, as it relates to bicycle safety, of residents from throughout the State of Arizona.
