Of Firsts and Circles

Two firsts and hundreds of circles:

The first DBCJRT win of 2007 was earned by TK and El Gigante. They were able to separate themselves, with one other in tow, from the junior field at the Cal Aggie Crit on Saturday. As the race wore on TK and El Gigante used their numerical advantage to drop their breakaway mate, and the two of them crossed the finish line together with raised arms. AWfoSho won the field sprint to take fourth, thanks to a perfect leadout from Laundry.

Kelby Spore completed the other first... his first bicycle race. Kelby hung with the big boys for the first lap before succumbing to a series of attacks, but fought on to finish with a small group of racers just behind the main field.

Many DBCJRT athletes competed in multiple races throughout the day. AWfoSho completed nearly 70 laps of the circular course while racing in the juniors, the elite 3/4, and pro/1/2/3 races; nearly 70 miles of his favorite kind of training! El Gigante, PtotheArker, the Tapinator, TK, and Davidamon each competed in at least two races. Laundry, Dishes, and Chris Stastny each did their turns during the junior race. Good, solid miles in the bank for April, May and June!

And, a special shout out to honorary junior, Big Jim, who finished in the top ten of his first ever crit!
