The day always starts the same...waking at 4:00 am to get to Erie by 6:30 am in order to register and get warmed up before our individual start times.
Part of the fun of TTs is checking out all the interesting "new" equipment...some readily available and some "custom"...and questionable!
Steve Marlette - 8th Place OVERALL, 3rd Place Men's 40-49 yrs
Hannah Brewer - 1st Place Women's 20-29 yrs, setting new Personal Record
NEW Ag3r GUY Tim Bauer, celebrating his 21st Birthday this very day - 2nd Place Men's 20-29, 34th Place Overall
Henry Dimmick - 7th Place Men's 50-59 yrs, 33rd Place Overall,
Ray Sielski - 15th Place Men's 50-59, 64th Place Overall
...and FoxVelo Club rider Randy McCracken - 8th Place Men's 50-59, 35th Place Overall.
Modern times aside, we remained true to our heritage, by being the LAST PEOPLE to leave the parking lot after the race...hanging out to socialize with our teammates in excited anticipation of the racing season ahead. However, THIS time, no one was "brave" enough to go for a swim in Lake Erie after the race!
Afterwards, both Hannah & Steve Brewer, Ray and Henry headed to Steve's favorite 6-pack (and food!) shop for some "fine dining"!
...and were still home in time to cut the grass!
