Best bike racing comic: CAT 3

Has there ever been a better bike racing comicbook than "CAT 3"?

Ken Benusis (of South Dakota) made several issues of his wonderful
comic in the early 90's. They captured all the wackiness, quirks,
lore-fetishism and forever-repeating stereotypes that is bike racing.
Some strips had titles like: "Who was that guy?" or "He came from
nowhere!" and the profiles of the members of The Club were hilarious.

The art production values were also cutting edge in DIY edginess. I haven't
seen better even in regular comics.

Benusis is still a dentist and still races Masters in a crazed flatland club with a crazed name, the Black Hills Domestiques.

I asked about this online years ago and thought it worth mentioning again in this age of Web 2.0. Really, I should scan a few pages so you can see what I mean.

BTW, I did search for him. Found his Dentist practice. Found listings of him as a comic creator. Found no comics
