    gratuitous self promotion

    March 15, 3009 — “Every One ate Their Wheaties”

    This year 2009 New York City Spring Bicycle Racing Series has become the battle of the fittest. And everyone is fit. March 15 became the “oh no you don’t” race. The riders in all categories kept trying to breakaway but the pack continued to make it groupo Compacto. The speeds and the fitness seem to be amazing the riders. With a lot of riders being amazed at their own fitness. Those winter training workouts must work.

    The Pro, 1, 2, 3 field yoyo’d their way through the 30 mile course. They played the best escape and catch game. In the end you have Neil Bezdek — Kissena snatching the win just ahead of Central Parks most winningest racer Wilson Vasquez — Champion System Racing/Cycles Gladiator Wine. When we added the numbers up Gavin Robertson — We Stand United continues his reign as Overall leader with Neil right behind him. And as it stands these two spin-doctors are the only two in their race that have placed in all three events. We have to wonder if these captains of the finish will end the series with a placing in every race.

    When it comes to being the master of the masters Gary Steinberg — Global Locate has these men by the short hairs. Gary has broken away from the pack in the masters’ series competition, by over 80 points. His closest competition is Jeff Cline — Krebs East End Cycles. Gary can be the first master since Bernard McGary to take away the Overall lead by the end of the Series.

    The “Come to Papi Award” goes go to Miguelangel Blanco — SpinCity.com. His talents as a bicycle racer makes coming in second, a bad day. Miguelangel is determined to come back on March 22 to claim his rightful place as number one. Although as fit as racers are this year the day to day winner is still a crap shoot and only time will tell if Mr. Blanco will beat his category 3-4 competitors in to submission.

    This Sunday, March 22, Central Park will be the venue for this week’s battle. We Stand United, still has their racer in the Yellow and Green Leaders jersey. But we have others inching up the ladder looking to snatch it right off their backs. But the overall battle will be great, because We Stand United looks to be fit and ready for battle. The 2009 Spring Series is shaping up to be a series of racers coming to battle. The riders who come are the gladiators who come to race. “Moon light or sunshine, we come to Ride or flat for my team” may be the credo tattooed on their chamois.

    Exciting is the only thing we can call it. After three weeks the series already has some DOMINANT racers, I hear the phone ringing for challengers let’s hope someone answers.

    Race day registration is still available.

    To be fair, I think it only says that you are the fastest of the old guys, not necessarily that old guys are fast

    Nice press. Gstien. Your sponser should definitely buy you a pony for that.

    Now tell them that's not how you spell 'groupo Compacto' (this sounds like a kitchen appliance). Or is that the Brooklyn-Italian spelling of 'gruppo compatto'?

    I do use 'the' when referencing him, though not sure of any others. He's my ace LT.
