THE PERSON

Although Laurent Fignon (above left) is our favorite rider; we are looking more for the temperament displayed in young LeMond (above right).  M. Fignon was brilliant and exciting, he was also temperamental and vain.

LeMond smiled through a lot of adversity, and let’s not forget who won in ’89.

Look, we understand that the list above is pretty long, and very varied, and don’t expect one person to be experienced in all.  That’s where the Old School Work Ethic kicks in.

Send a short statement of why you want the job along with C.V. to [email protected]

*** HELPFUL TIP: please go down the list above and report back ***

After a long, difficult Road Race the day before, turnout was small for the criterium. And since the RCB/Bike Law boys missed out on a result, we showed up gunning for a win. The squad was Jeremy Russell, Pat Lemieux, Timmy Reinhart, and yours truly. The course was a very tight and technical kilometer (or […]

Should Texas pass a statewide law that bans drivers from buzzing bicyclists? Should Texas fully ban a person from holding a cell phone while driving? We’ve had a decade to consider this issue.
