On Saturday 27 March 2010 Hawk Racing Pro Triathlete Helen Libby helped to put on a free triathlon clinic for beginners and intermediates at Freedom Sports in Panama City Beach, FL. Participants were walked through the traditional triathlon sequence highlighting the rules and “tricks” to ensure a safe and efficient race. General swim techniques, transition skills, and racing with comfort and speed were covered in this first clinic. Many participants stayed for an hour after the clinic officially ended to ask more questions and obtain contact information. Turnout was high even with a bike race held concurrent with the clinic. Keep your eyes out for future clinics which plan to divide up the segments and integrate each with a group training (e.g. swim training then group open water swim) which will allow more individual attention.

2nd Place at the National Duathlon Championship

Sponsored Pro Athlete Jessica Jacobs who won the National Duathlon Title in 2009 finished a minute short to repeat another win at the 2010 Championships. Jessica has been sponsored last year by Hawk Racing and just renewed her agreement with the small company for another 2 years. She has raced the 2010 version wheels at the event in Alabama and was impressed with the improvements to 2009. Jessica has been the 7th athlete who finished Podium this season on the new Hawk Racing wheels and bottom brackets and we are sure more will come.

Kraft wins Internatinal Triathlon Santos / Brazil

After the event, Nina stayed that she had the race of her life and that's thanks to the super fast Hawk Racing wheels and bottom brackets. Of course her new bike from CEEPO and the Profile Design parts made everything complete, but our products played a major role in the win. The Olympic Distance Race in Brazil was the first race for the German Pro Triathlete and she won the event in 1h59min12sec. Nina always has been a strong swimmer and great runner, but now she has improved on her bike time as well and won the event by 10min in front of the second female. We are looking forward to more results in 2010. Well Done Nina...YOU ROCK!

Pro BMX rider and winner of the gold medal at the Beijing Olympics 2008 Maris Strombergs couldn't believe the performance of the Hawk Racing bottom bracket at his last race in Florida. 2 Pro BMX riders have already tested for several month how the HR BB will hold up in BMX races and we good 100% satisfaction of the riders. Maris is the 3rd Pro Rider who is using our ENG BB and we are sure more will follow.
After seing our carbon fiber wheel sets we produce, even the BMX riders have ask now to develop hubs for BMX wheels. We didn't expect that our BB's would actually fit in a BMX bike, but we have been wrong and now we start our research to develop products for BMX as well. Good Luck to Maris in his 2010 race season.

AeroCat Cycling Team signes with Hawk Racing Inc.

The AeroCat Cycling Team signs with Hawk Racing Inc for 2010. The team has already the new green Hawk Racing bottom brackets. Furthermore, everybody will race on our new carbon fiber wheels as well. Since tires are expensive and our wheels are top of the line, the whole team will race on clincher wheels and not on tubulars. Folmer Bearing Technology and the new SF30 hubs will give the team the extra performance needed to win races. Good Luck and please follow the team on the Facebook Fan Page.
