With the 2005 season and its successes fueling Faulkner Honda Racing, the Team is rolling into the new year with fitness and loads of motivation. The great 2006 team kits, made by Nalini, have already arrived and winter base training is in full effect. After the great team ride last weekend, its apparent that the Team is dedicated and ready to bring home great results again this year.
One big change for the Team this year revolves around the Faulkner Honda Criterium. For the past five years, the race has been a tradition on the second weekend in July around the streets of Harrisburg. The race will continue - taking place on Saturday, July 8th - but the location of this year's event will be new. All new course, all new town.
Hummelstown, Pennsylvania has accepted the concept of the Faulkner Honda Criterium with open arms and will be the host of this year's race. Holding true to the unique and challenging course in Harrisburg, the Hummelstown course will be a bit shorter (at less than a mile), but will pack no less than 8 corners into the loop with a perfect wide-open and long finishing straight. Should prove for a great day of racing.
