McDowell Circuit Race : Team Aggress!

McDowell Circuit Race

Report from Rick:  Did the McDowell Circuit race today (30 min around a 1.6 mile loop with 2 turns); gorgeous venue, mostly sunny (pic attached).  This race had a 60+ group and we started about a minute behind the 50+ group.  The race was mundanely civilized; I and an AZ Masters rider (Robert Tomkins) did all the pulling between us and about half way thru we bumped the pace up and dropped half our group.  Norm Kibble hung on with us.  On the last lap I dropped into 3rd deliberately until the final 300m or so at which point Tomkins commenced his sprint.  At 250mKibble started to lose the leader’s wheel so I made a move to the outside, passed Kibble and continued to close on Tomkins, albeit slowly.  In the end, he beat me by about a bike length.  Nevertheless, I felt like I managed the race pretty well, finished 2nd, and got a bit of cash

    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.
