blue squirrel

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... [anonymous comments are lame, cowboy up and put a name or start a blog]

here is some kit love courtesy of team member wes, aka 'bad ass'.
[and yes wes lives in socal]

side note: it is becoming a common occurrence of late, that when riding in the company of a rock racing rider, they comment on how much they like the kits. many days later and after a few recovery drinks, naps and many more espressos, it finally dawned on me that maybe they were alluding to the fact that they may need a job soon. [don't get me started on what a shyster m. ball is and how he is in the process of screwing up a lot of talent's 2009 season. not to mention what a coward and lowlife he and rock racing were when they let some of their support staff go a few months ago. i wonder who they got to drive the truck / trailer?]
