Well, well, well. While looking over the registration list, there are several familiar names for the Zanesfield race this Sunday. Ouch, check out the temperature forecast for the morning. You've got to be tough (Matt Ashmore) and have the proper cold weather gear (Matt Ashmore) and not be a weather weenie (Matt Ashmore) to show up for this race. Among the names I recognize from having eaten their dust for many years are Travis Iies (wait, he's "only" a cat 3???), Danny Alarcon (that off season weight loss will have him rocket to the win. You heard it here first), Matt Ashmore (making noises that the cold might deter him from the start), Sergey (I see he has vaulted from a 4 to a 3 but destined to go lower), Luke Manning, Shawn Aker, Chris Fisher (dude used to live at the bottom of Savage Rd so how could you not be a strong cyclist), Scott Billman & Doug McConaha (those latter two are 55+???), Lori Nedescu (wonder how she's doing makng the transition from elite marathoner to peddler?), Denice Davis (don't think I have ridden with her since she crashed on a Tuesday NA ride) and...when you reach my advanced age you forget names so I apologize if you are reading this and have reached this point and not seen your name even though you have bashed me on the bike.
