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...

SDSR part 2

SDSR part 2
[ san dimas stage race ]

today was a better day, i made it over the cannon street KOM wall climb 5 times and made the cut to race tomorrow, nuff said. i was in the hunt for the some KOM points on the 2 second lap to make up for the previous days drought and in the process found myself in a group of 4 in the 'break at the back' afterwards. we fought hard and tirelessly together for 3 laps to catch the main grouppo before the end, but to no avail. of course everything behind us [15 plus riders] fell off like a ton of bricks and we were it to make the final selection for tomorrows downtown san dimas crit. many props and a big sense of pride goes out to my 3 other group riders, we never quit, never gave up, never wined, we worked like a well oiled machine for the remainder of the race. to say i was proud, would be an understatement, 4 strangers bonded together in pain and suffering for a common cause, you have to love road racing. i felt like the elder statesmen, which i was for the most part, and keep everyone working together and made sure that they did not pull too long and weaken our effort by being dropped. so to my fellow group of 4, thanks and it was a pleasure working with you today.
