Several locals are heading to New York this week for the "Gran Fondo New York", about which you can read here: http://www.granfondony.com/competition.php. Looks like a fun, yet challenging event of 110 miles and 8000+' of climbing with 4 timed climbs and prizes for top finishers. Rick Miller is taking a group, including Muscle Dude, Marty, Jon Morgan and Pete C. Rumors abound that John Sada is putting together an elite team of 4 domestiques whose purpose is to escort him around the route and finish ahead of the aforementioned "Rick's Gang". Apparently the 4 have to be super climbers and be willing to provide support as needed and in exchange, their entry fees are paid, along with food and lodging. One of the "Super 4" who have been identified is a legit Cat 2. Ought to be good stories coming out of the event which I'll do what I can to post here. Resu
