Jeff, Steve and I were at ABES headquarters wondering if we would ride or go directly to the clubhouse. Then Lorne showed up in his yellow rain pants and jacket. He was too excited not to ride and his enthusiasm was infectious. We rode in a light rain for about 40 minutes. Steve took the lead and raced away. Everybody else was wearing glasses and had a difficult time seeing through the water and glare. The pace at the rides the last month has been getting faster and faster and this ride was no exception. It’s amazing what a group can do to challenge, motivate and reward one another.
Duke met us at the clubhouse and we toasted the arrival of his son - Leo Vincent John Dyck. Congratulations to Duke and Julia on their new family! The conversations at the clubhouse were oriented on cross, bike and ABES awesomeness. An upcoming ABES cross race is in order to prepare us for Southern Cross; Keep an eye out for details.
My family was excited to welcome another addition as well. A 54 cm, 21 pound, angel. Her name is Opus Spark. She’s a real beaut. Bruce and Curt at BAC helped bring her into this world. Thanks boys. Can't wait to take the pie plate off.
Poster extraordinair Chris Huebner put together the poster that will beckon the world to the sweetest X race going. JS
Are you racing her tomorrow?
And congrats to the Duker & Jules too.
Careful with that thing, Johnny. It only takes a spark, so get a fire going.ReplyDelete
