Tour de Emerald Coast

While the best riders in the world raced in the Tour de France this past July, the best riders in North Florida competed the the Tour de Emerald Coast - a 5 stage event held in North Florida. The TdEC uses a handicap system with the Cat 3 riders leaving 30 min ahead of the Cat 1 riders and 22.5 minutes ahead of the Cat 2 riders (a complex formula involving Vo2 Max and power to weight raios was used to set these times).

Our Cow Town crew based in Florida was on hand and kicked some serious butt. Selby Holler and Joey Locke competed in this years event with Selby taking took top honors in the Cat 1 division.

Here are some photos from on the road of North Florida.
