Report
: This was a fun one.  A workout headed south into the wind, and overall, great cruising in the chase-1 position with Michael and Blake providing some steady pacing up the Rt-6 and Budd’s Creek ascents – thanks gents.  Nice to have you with us today, George; looks like you set a PR on this outing – nicely done.  From our Class-A brethren, Bruce thought he set a PR today as well.  But I checked, Bruce, and while you had a good ride, your best is even faster (and in the AA range).  Keep spinning my friend, you already have a good start on the year!  Speaking of personal bests, I’m excited to mention that Jill Patterson quietly took down the QOM last week –great ride Jill!  ...and speaking of speed, keep an eye on Justin and Cole.  They're young, very fast and getting faster.
