Kevin Henschel, a Cat 2 type, showed up at the New Albany Thursday group ride a couple of weeks ago as a suitable warm-up for what remained on his race schedule. The Marty's, Jon's, Craig's, Dave's and Shannons of the group worked him over pretty good and prevented him from breaking away (OK, unfamiliarity with the route may have been a minor influence).
This weekend, Kevin lined up at the "Smith Dairy Milk Race", a Cat Pro/1/2 event. Drawing upon the experience of mixing it up with the Thursday New Albany gang, here is Kevin in the final break so cool and comfortable that he thought to wave at the photographer before.....
....leaping away on a solo break to finish first by over 2 minutes on his nearest pursuer. Here, Kevin basking in the glow of beating the Pro/1/2 field, if not able to do the same to the New Albanyers. Note Kevin also came in 5th in the State Road Race Championship and 1st among Cat 2 in the Pro/1/2 one week previously. Look forward to seeing him out with the Thursday group again for more remedial work.

Kevin could ride away from us at will. He did it on a Wed. Worlds, we had 11 guys rotating chasing him and Garth for 30 miles and we never caught them....
