The stars came out for the Grandview races, here Kenda Janet, Kenda Paul their mutt and a doberman. Steve O spent most of the day......
...down the hill poaching free beer, food, beer and chips from a resident of the area who always provides quite the spread for those attending the race. Seriously, mill around here for a few hours while walking back up the hill to watch a finish or two and you too will begin grabbing people as Steve does above.
Adam, one of the regulars at the Sunday morning COP ride, here clutching his helmet in the red jersey prior to the start of the Cat 4 race. Adam hung in there for several laps but began dropping back. He needs to hire Grand Poobah as his coach because those who have do this.....
Kayla Starr led the pack in earlier laps before Todd screamed, "Do a Wilson" and she dropped back to draft, saving energy. One could tell she was toying with the field and so, at the bottom of the final hill, she attacked, gapped and....
....won the race. I turned to Todd and inquired if he could begin training me but he declined, telling me I couldn't afford him.
Todd and Julia relaxing between laps. I think that's Ricky G to the right and in front of him, Steve walking back for more free food.
Steve O, by now heavily slurring his speech, tried to give Young Phenom Logan an inspirational word or two and you can see the impact it is having. Steve also gave Logan a coaching tip, "Attack from the start and try to solo away". Logan said he thought he would attack on the final climb instead.
Logan won the Cat 5 race with Younger Phenom Nick, at only 14, coming in second. Nick finishing 2nd is impressive but I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why Logan is playing in the Cat 5 races. This is like Chris Horner dropping in on a Cat 3 race. Thanks to Todd for sending me this image.
