El Presidio Crit

Aggressors:
I made the drive into town this am for the downtown crit since it didn’t really look like it would be raining a lot.  By now I know the Script by heart and it unfolded like a pre-recorded movie.  Reg and Jon Roberts TT’d off the front with a few other 55+ riders.  I hung out in the back on Jack Dillon’s wheel by design and I figured Reg and Co would lap us with 2-4 laps remaining.  They actually lapped us with 1 1/2 laps to go and I made the small addnl effort to jump on Reg’s wheel as he went by.  At that point, of course, we are all on the last lap by definition so I made sure I stayed tight on the leaders as they sprinted to the line, and I was able to do so because I had been resting for most of the race.  Even got a bit of $$…..nice.
PS:  Thanks Doug, for the pics.

  • 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.
