A tribute to Stu

This upcoming Sunday morning (10/5), we will celebrate the life of Stu Press with a slow-paced Nichols ride. While this has been a very difficult last 24 hours for all of us, we owe it to Stu to have a great turnout to celebrate a great human being. We’ll leave at the usual 8:05AM start from La Grange and Westwood and end up at Peet’s Brentwood where we can hang out and share our favorite Stu stories with each other.

Gold, Gold and enough points for Ivy Koester to become National Champion

Last night Ivy secured her second gold medal in the Junior National Championships being held at the Carson Velodrome and the overall title on points to become the 2014 National Omnium Champion. She did it in a dominent fashion. Starting from the first lap she covered every attack from her main rivals on points but let the other attacks go. She didn't waste an ounce of energy in her 16 lap scratch race. And when it was the bell lap, she laid down a devestating attack that left everyone in her wake. She pedaled like a woman on a mission with no one behind her able to make up any ground. When she crossed the finish line first her smile was from ear to ear as she punched the air with emotion.

Dexter Koester Takes Silver in the Junior National Championship 1K Scratch race

Dexter was following a strong wheel going down the back straight on the last lap of his 4 lap scratch race. That wheel belonged to Alex and he's taking Dexter right to the front of the race. But then in turn 3, Alex overlaps the wheel in front of him and that rider decides to go up track. Their two wheels collide and Alex's front wheel goes wobbly. Right at that momnet a small opening occurs below Dexter on the black line. He instinctually dives down and comes out of turn 4 in second place with some momentum towards first. He can't make up all the ground but does come across in second place and takes home a big ole silver medal. It's the happiest I've ever seen him before after a great race result.
