It goes without saying that Team Mike's Bikes had a phenomenal 2012 road racing season, but how exactly did we do? TMB had a squad of 20 racers ranging from age 19 to 40 racing from the San Bruno Hill Climb on January 1st to Henleyville Road Race on September 30th. That's nine months of racing up to sometimes four times in a weekend. Our boys traveled not just within the confines of the Norther California Nevada district borders but to San Dimas, Oregon, Wisconsin, Atlanta, British Columbia, and even across the ocean to Belgium. We upgraded several riders from Category 3 to Category 2 to Category 1.

We had an astonishing

43 1st place results

27 2nd place results

18 3rd place results

That's 88 Podiums and a total of 194 Top 10 results.
