AZ State Crit

Aggressors:
A perfect day; around 60F with calm winds at my race time, 9:25am.  The first ride in my new kit;  the new flames looked great on me so I had the really important part under control.  I followed Reg Dowdall the first lap as he gradually moved toward the front of the combined 65+ group.  By the lap 2 climb I was functional so I went to the front and bumped the pace up the hill fracturing the peloton into a lead group of 4 and a residual bunch just rounding the top turn as we went over the top and back down toward the Start/Finish line for lap 3.  Reg basically attacked every lap going over the top and back down to the Line.  With 3 laps to go his attack over the top gapped me and Steven Borer while Steve Long managed to hang with him.  Thus went the race; Reg and Steve Long were 1st & 1st while Steve Borer and I were 2nd & 2nd.  I wore my heart monitor for this event and did manage to get my HR up over 160 several times so all in all a good training ride.

  • 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.
