Grant Sample and his partner found themselves on the podium at the CBR TTT state Championships in the 2 man division. They got 3rd place, not bad for a cat 4 racer mixing it up with a bunch of cat 1s and 2s huh?

FYI: this is a photo of Grant, but not during last weekend's TT.

Matt D at Master's District champs

Here is a cool photo of Coached rider Matt Donovan keeping warm before his sprint heat at the Master's Disrict Championships. I'm there on the left getting ready to dole out some tips before the race, and local rider Darrel McPheron just got done telling a fart joke.
Matt qualified for the tournament for the first time this year, but got eliminated in the second round.

Last weekend

Last weekend went well for a few riders.

Jerry Murphy got a 9th place out of over 50 riders in his category int the TX state TT championship. a 1:03:20 is pretty good for a trolling course like that one. While Terry Ward got a 6th place RR finish and an 8th place GC finish in the Tour of Whitehorse in Alaska. Both riders have worked hard all year, but I really have to hand it to Terry. Terry wins the mental toughness award for putting in those big computrainer hours during the long Alaskan winters.

Master's district championships

Here is a photo of me after getting 2nd in the SoCal -Nevada Master's District Championships points race. over the weekend. It became apparent about a 3rd of the way through the race that i wasn't going to beat Chris Daggs from the SDBC Elite Team, so I just worked on getting that second place. Daggs was just too strong.

I'm back!

This blog has been severely neglected for the last 2 months. It was just impossible for me to find time to update this thing while I was guiding the tours in Italy.
In recent athlete news. Tm Warren of texas just got his cat 3 upgrade. Congrats Tom. Tom has been working hard all year, and the work has paid off. Tom is a physician and his work schedule can bepretty crazy, making my job tough as well.

I have several riders racing the the TX state TT champs this weekend, so good luck to all of them. Some of my other athletes are doing Stage races in Alaska, and circuit races in California. Check back to see how they do.
