The ABES 4 man team of Paul, Steven, Franklin and Gavin impressed and/or annoyed all the right people at the 24 hour race last weekend. After outpacing fast lap times with DRR for twelve hours, the DRR team stopped for the night to rest by the fire, beer-hydrate and get a good nights sleep (give up). The ABES could have settled for a gimme win but they had a plan and they stuck to it. They raced all night and finished at noon with 39 laps. Their determination was inspiring - well done boys! Franklin put in a good effort too, almost racing as much as the rest of his team - good helping Franky!
Team White Russians (my cycling/drinking team) took third place in the 4 man race (mumble outofthreeteams cough), and Albert raced every lap on a numerous configuration of bike bits. Cheryl and Mia put in 6 and 3 laps respectively and made me proud.
Big-time props to David U, KK, Darryl NB and team DRR for putting on a sweet race.
Team ABES were unable to get to the 24 hours of Falcon party last year. Shitty for us. After some new and improved head shaking, we'll be there. This year our 4 man team - Gavin, Franklin, Paul and Steve are capable of kicking some ass.
Cheryl and I might compete on a tandem...
Double your pleasure, double your fun (like in the commercial but better)
