    May 25, 2005 -- For the past twelve years, Alfred "Alfredo Sauce" Bobe Jr. has spent five days a week toiling as a bike messenger on the no-room-for-error streets of New York, risking his life to deliver packages.

    "There are rules and regulations out here," says the soft-spoken but confident South Bronx-born Puerto Rican. "And every day, I take a chance."

    Come Saturday, however, the 31-year-old father of two will trade his mountain bike for a specially designed racing bike, and will serve as the co-captain for Team Puma, a racing team comprised solely of bike messengers.

    Puma provides each of its members with health insurance for as long as they're part of the team and pays their expenses on the days they race.

    Each week, Bobe and his eight-person team compete against other bike messengers, without brakes, in various cities around the country for cash and prizes.

    The finale, known as the World Champion Race, takes place June 30 to July 4 in Jersey City.

    Last weekend at the Kissena Velodrome in Flushing, Queens, Team Puma collected the most qualifying points. Individually, however, Bobe and his peers didn't win any trophies.

    Sorry guys I tried to get the whole image... but it wouldn't print screen.
