Sundevil Crit : Team Aggress!

Sundevil Crit

And the Angel declared “thou art become race fodder,” and said “it is done!”
I feel cursed……I cannot seem to get myself onto the podium.  I’m right there at “stand & deliver” time, yet I’m letting them slip away.  Sat at Sundevil was dicey.  There was a nasty crash  which I barely avoided in the combined 50/60 peloton with about 1 1/2 laps to go. 8-10 riders (all 50+) ended up on the pavement.  A couple of them were still laying there during the cooldown lap.  TruComposites/RPM now has 3 riders in 60+ (Norm Kibble, Joe Puchi, Larry McCormick) who managed to control this race and assure their mutual presence for the final (downhill) sprint to the finish line, which suited these power guys perfectly,  Robert Tompkins and I could only watch while they powered by to take 1-3, relegating us to 4/13 & 5/13, respectively (My sprint still sucks).

  • 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.
