El Tour 2009

All washed up

El Tour ended a long season for many of us.  Vic, Elliot, Leo, Doogie, Christine and Kurt all raced.  Vic has graduated from Aggress, but he is still an honorary member of the team.  He finished the tour 27th, Elliot 45th (surviving a ass-ripping crash), Kurt in 64th (broken cleat prior to the 2nd wash losing contact with the front group…), Leo 117th, Doogie 228th and Christine in 2411th.  Not too bad a day for Aggress.  There is definitely a love – hate relationship with El Tour.  You can race with real pros in Tucson’s biggest cycling event, and you can get seriously hurt.

Elijet gives Vic’s new teammates a taste of egg.

  • Mission

    Aggress is a Tucson-based statewide / regional cycling team formed in January, 2004.
    As a developmental team for both road and mountain bike racing, Aggress continues to actively – yet carefully – recruit according to a philosophy that emphasizes teamwork in both training and racing tactics.
    Our focus is to race as a team, utilizing team tactics to get our man the win. We ride in support of our designated racer, with each member in turn supported in the key event(s) of his choosing.
    We are aggressive when we race, but we behave in a courteous and sportsmanlike manner at all times. We also have team training rides that we utilize throughout the season.
