after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

YES, SOME PASSION

remember all of those lame doping stories, almost all false yet negitive in their delivery and impact. wow, what a difference a day in the south of france of all places can make. the day burst with the passion that has been so lacking in the on going cycling media / racing bitterness. i can just feel the energy in the tinkoff camp right now after their first pro win as a team. this is cycling at its best my bitter french friends. the ASO, UCI and wada should all stop their in-fighting and soak up some of oleg tinkov and the boys passion for the pure joy of racing. just look at oleg's elation at their first win, this is why we love this sport. especially the way his boy mikhail ignatiev braved a solo attack with 11km to go and held off the sleepish group and won a sprinters stage, solo no less. bravo team tinkoff on your first win, may it be one of many.


[my kind of racing, aggression, attacking, all or nothing, this is pure bike racing at its finest]
