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...

TUESDAY TRACK 1

tim let it all hang out last night at the tuesday night track races at the san diego velodrome, testing his form in various events. just starting to gain some form and after multiple out of country trips, he did very well, actually showed some spark, i feel sorry for the competition when that spark turns into a fire and those guns really start spinning.

[the really cool thing about the evening was the graduation of the juniors track class, which was sponsored by squadra [?] these kids that would otherwise not have access to bikes and the track, got a chance to learn the ropes and race. they all seemed really jazzed about racing on the track and i hope will continue racing for both the good of them and cycling.]

    It hurts just to watch it... ouch.

    It was fun though and it was a great return to racing. Maybe next time I'll get the timing down a bit better. Maybe...

    And thanks for being there for the support and hanging with the Masidaughter.
