We're still settling down from the incredible racing that took place over the weekend in Glasgow. The guys battled hard, won a few, lost a few but came out to race another day.

We're super proud of Dominic, Joe and Billy, plus thrilled to race with our guest riders Chris Lawless and a special thanks to Matt Rotherham who stepped in and partnered with Chris for the madison time trial to take home a very respectable 4th place.

Team Star Track currently sits in 9th place overall in the Champions league!

Bicycle Diaries: A day in the life of Billy Taylor.

Star Track is proud to share a new day in the life of series, a diary of sorts via the perspective of our Star Track riders and their adventures as junior racers.

Enjoy and tune in for our new day in the life of series, "Bicycle Diaries".

This is the Bicycle Diary of Billy Taylor (age 15).


Talent ID camp.

I just got back from USAC Talent ID camp which was held at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. I was there for five days with around 20 other riders in my age group. It was a great experience. All of the riders got along really well, and we learned a lot.


The food at the Olympic Training Center was awesome and I now have a good reason to work hard to get back there, unlimited good food. The camp was at a pretty high altitude so it made it harder to breath but overall I had some good rides, I was happy with my training and it was a great experience.

I came back on Sunday, then on Tuesday I drove with my family to South Carolina to ride at the Hincapie Gran Fondo. I am doing the 80 mile Gran Fondo this Saturday. Today I got to go on a recon of part of the course with a great group of riders. Besides George Hincapie, there were at least three other former professional riders. Christian Van de Velde, Erik Zabel, and Bobby Julich. It was a great ride in the hills of South Carolina. We rode around 55 miles today.

This is really great training for me because recently I was lucky enough to be selected to ride at the Revolution Series in the UK over the next few months. The Revolution Series is a three part track racing series that takes place in London, Glasgow, and Manchester. A lot of great professional track riders race there and i'm very proud to say that I will be in the “Future Stars” Group.


The events will be televised on Eurosport TV, but I think they use the Future Star races to run the commercials, so you probably can’t see me race... but I'm still really excited. My Teammates Dominic Suozzi and Joe Christiansen will be racing with the pros so I am lucky to share this amazing experience with them.

Hope you enjoyed my stories and adventures, i'll check back in soon and let you know how the Fondo went.

Sponsor highlight... The Center for Spine Care + Mobility.

A little while back the Star Track elite team had the great opportunity to visit the Center for Spine Care + Mobility located in downtown Manhattan.

Our riders met with the staff of chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, medical staff and were treated to the full CSC+M treatment to gain achieve recovery and rehabilitation techniques for optimal performance.

In what turned out to be an incredible experience, Dr. Anselmi uses techniques called “Functional Movement Screen” and “Selective Functional Movement Assessment.”

These are types of analysis especially valuable to cyclists, which tend to over use the quadriceps muscle group, and under utilize the gluteal muscle group. 

This imbalance can wreak havoc on the hips and lower back pain… sound familiar?

Post analysis, the CSC+M staff went to work and performed massage, physical therapy, chiropractic techniques and “Active Release Techniques” (ART) an athletes dream come true.

ART is an innovative soft tissue treatment used commonly with athletes which helps restore balance to your muscular system and aids in recovery… it worked wonders.

Thank you Dr. Anselmi and the Staff at CSC+M… your help and physical therapy helped us prepare in full force for track nationals! We look forward to visiting soon for some much needed post season recovery therapy.

To book an appointment at CSC+M head over to their website or call 212-475-8104.
