Velominatus: Chica

Order: Level 2 Velominatus

Location: winter park, fl

Chica was the name given to me by a local pro when I first started working, wide-eyed and naive, at my local bike shop. It spread like wildfire. Years later, there are still people that have no idea what my given name is. That's kind of awesome. Currently, I'm a cycling photographer. It took a severe back injury for me to get into cycling. With gymnastics being too high impact, I needed a new sport to throw myself into. I'm way too into road, and I have a freakish memory when it comes to race results. Some may say that's a bad thing, but I'm pretty sure none of those people are Velominati.

We have some Giro winners, we have some Tour...

The Kemmelberg is a brute. In my opinion, its the hardest of the cobbled climbs in the Spring Classics; it has a high speed tarmac approach that saps the guns of their snap. The transition from tarmac to cobbles is awful, the stones are very badly laid throughout and if you don’t hit it just right, you’ll come to a standstill. The cobbl...

Het Volk (it will always be Het Volk to me) and now the Strade Bianche may well mark the sentimental beginning to the season, but those are specialized, pre-season races that appeal mostly to riders who are preparing for bigger objectives later in the year, such as the Cobbled or Ardennes Classics. Same goes for Tirreno Adriatico and Paris-Nice; t...
