Summer is Almost Here
Thats perfect timing for Coaches Annie and Chad as they had to ditch their van outside of Bernillio late sunday night with a broken something-or-other. So now Annie is riding to and from class at FLC and Chad will be setting up for the Wednesday short tracks with just a back-pack, and they will ride, of course, to Thursday nights Devo Coaches Social at the Lions Den.
But really this week is all about getting on with life in a healthy clean way. Thats riding, walking, bussing to and from, along with carpooling to and from town or work. We live in a small town that is relatively flat and very accessible with its many bike paths and sweet neighborhood routes, so it is really not a big deal to be green and leave the car at home. We also have several transit staions or big parking lots where those out of city limiters could drive to park, unload the bike and do the city route on mans greatest invention. We have it so good here in Durango, lets stay strong and healthy.
Speaking of healthy, coaches Annie and Chad were in Dallas Texas over the weekend and there is not much there for commuting and staying healthy. They have busses and some public transit action, but really no way could you safely commute to and from in the big Texas city. Again, we are so lucky, lets take advantage of our opportunity!

Sweet Moment from the B race was when Jay Eagen made a move on Rich Larson with 2 laps to go, to move into 3rd place and the $10 prize.
Sweet Moment from the A race was when Sepp Kuss held off a late charge by Rotem Ishay and Frank Mapel on the last lap to win the $30 prize and DMR ski pass. That lap also saw Frank close a 16 second gap to Rotem to overtake him for 2nd place.
Thanks to Durango Coca-Cola for the sweet course, pump track and Mexican Coke beverages, Jay Eagen and his DMR crew for the spring course work and the new bridge and the ski pass prizes for the winners of each category , Annie Cheeney for her sweet DJing and registration help, Sarah Tescher for the registration and schlepping help and all the racers and parents who cheered on the racers and helped tear down the venue after the sweet racing action. It may have been small, but it was a ball!Read More
