Below are a couple of inticing snippets to whet your appetite!!!  There is a link to the entire Road Race Report at the bottom.

Enjoy the article, Thanks Mark, Thanks WMRC!!


Part I: Race Preparation

September 2013 was the last time I felt the pulses of bike racing.   I had been concentrating on work and family but I was missing racing so much I awakened to the idea that the right balance of racing could boost and sharpen my life focus, rather than detract from it. 

Part II: The Race

On race day winds were steady around 30 miles per hour and gusts felt like a tall farmer with the open palms of his big hands was leaning with all his mass against our bikes and bodies. 

For some reason Paul attacked again.  We all watched stunned and unbelieving. 

The sense of excitement of breaking free from the pack’s tenacity was accentuated by such a long wait. I’m finally doing something besides hanging on! 
The Landis-Trek team rode as one and made each individual stronger.
