After nearly two months divided on different racing schedules across the state, Thompson O’Neil Law with bring its full compliment of riders to Thompsonville, Michigan, for the Peak2Peak Mountain Bike Classic.

The team is looking for energetic, fun-loving and warm-blooded camera folk to join us in taping certain portions of the Peak2Peak mountain bike race in Thompsonville, Michigan on October 15th and the Iceman Cometh on November 5th in Kalkaska. You will be recorded the laughter and the tears as TOLaw races, dominants and reminisces two of the largest bike races in the country.

TOLaw’s Classics riders Cody, Wes and Joe Sovis are prepping for what has been called the Spiral of Doom, the Circle of Certain Consternation, and the Whirling Dervish in the past few days. (Admittedly, all of these references came in the preceding sentence) The Pando Fall Classic is a staple of Michigan mountain biking, an annual test of late-season strength, climbing and guts.
All this week, TOLaw Cycling has been showing off their training routes leading up to the KissCross Cyclocross race at Plaster Creek Park, Grand Rapids. Today’s route is from team climber Cody Sovis, who now resides in the unbearably flat tundra of Allendale, Michigan. On this flat turf, he has turned to the mountain bike to work on his power, which will be crucial heading into the Fall Classics which demand well-rounded performances from racers hoping to finish high. While a strong climber, Cody has suffered on the flatter courses this year, which means he’ll need all the work he can get heading into Pando.
Joe is the wily veteran of the TOLaw Cycling team and he knows better than anyone how to be ready to roll on race day. Joe let us check out his Strava account to see a normal training ride as he prepares for this Sunday’s cyclocross race at Plaster Creek Park, and even more importantly, for the Fall Classics.
The power puncheur of the TOLaw squad offered up his Strava account so we could take a look at a typical training ride for the fast man from Interlochen. Wes is currently working on his form for the KissCross Cyclocross Series which begins the very Sunday at Plaster Creek Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Already known for his impressive and powerful style of riding, Wes is fine-tuning his pedal-mashing ahead of the CX and Fall Classics sneaking up on racers, beginning September 11th.
Heading into the Fall Classics, TOLaw will not attend an altitude training camp as they’d hope. The squad had looked at a potential trip to utilize high altitude training, so popular among cyclists and endurance athletes in modern sports, in order to properly prep for the string of races this fall so important to the team’s mission. Team Director Dan O’Neil said the team would focus and train “here at home where everything is cheaper” rather then spend thousands on a trip to Livorgnio .
