As for our own little corner of the racing world this past Thursday was a ton of fun. Shaun D. tossed out the Cheaters Som(e)times Win alleycat. Ten racers took to the streets including BC chapter pledge Jerry Loeppky. Charles, Bruce, Tom, James, Curt, Ben, Albert, Paul W. and I rounded out the racers.
14, or for some, 13 places around town were the targets on this night. DS managed to come in with the fastest time but alas, managed to miss one stop. Shaun's steep penalties (8 minutes for missing a stop and 4 for an incorrect answer) meant the door was open for the 2nd fastest team. And Bruce and Curt slid right through that open door. Nice work bike shop boys! The top three went like this...
Curt and Bruce - $30 and a sweet t-shirt
David - $15 and a feeling of emptiness for yet ANOTHER 2nd place finish
Ben - $5 and a podium finish

|Bruce and Tom|
|Shaun works so hard on the stats that he's blurry|
|Ben, Albert and Curt|

|Ben and Shaun put on their own smoke show|
|Jerry and the Duker|
|Even a 5th place finish wasn't enough for the rookie.....he argues|
|The view from our season ticket seats for THE JETS!|
|Ben - the happiest winner of five bucks in ABES history|
|Beautiful night for a race|
|Duker, Shaun and a svelte DS|
|Ben still loving the money|
All in all a great race Shaun.
