|See Ben win the sprint.|
2 Chronicles 15:7
|Fergus, Mickey and Ben meet at RCB.|
Of course, intensity
|Early appeal for Justice.|
Steep climbing to Fairmont Loop made Sunday a soul burner of Biblical proportions.
Meeting at River City Bicycles at Noon, Mickey led the climb up the team's traditional, "Paris Robaix," but Ben retained the sprint sign on Fairmont. A week later it was Tony Escobar.
|Boys sit out a lap|
Justice "Jetty" Spears made an early appeal for preeminence when the climb was still on Montgomery, but had to run with his bike when the slope hit SW Upper.
|Fun on Fairmont Loop.|
Ben and Fergus gave a more advanced lesson on the second lap.
Ben is taking the team in hand, and shaping a racing machine.

|Warrior in Pidgeon.|
|Ball hollow halves.|
|One leg hollows on the ball.|
Especially with Olympic lifts
|Victory arrives in push press preparation.|
Cleen and Jerk.
|Tony is getting ready.|
Before the big
January Team miles of Rocky Rabbit Winter Training,
a little weight lifting is great.
The training regimen in this video is ideal.
|Tony's hang cleen quick.|
|Joshua is fast.|
Climbing hills, and spinning on stationary rollers are just part of the Cyclisme Racing Program's recipe for winter season preparaton.
Fall season power comes first.
|Ben Waters is just getting started.|
won the OBRA Cat 4 Track BAR 2015. (see)
Jaden Salama finished Second in Junior BAR! (see)
|Ben Waters and Jaden Salama.|
Eventually the dynamic duo's alternated attack fusion of off the front power, was slashed by OBRA when they "Catted up" to the next pack up "Cat 3," just Ben Waters.
|Ben Waters leads out and wins another point!|
|A natural sprinter who loves to wait.|
The combination was split up and all Alpenrose Velodrome Category 4 Men's
|Salama, Waters, and Bergmann approach Olympic Sprint.|
Nobody deserved Cat-up more!
Waters immediately began to instigate attack after attack before the best of the next pack up. He even attacked for the finish line, and won! It was a sight to see.
He began to win in the Match Sprint on Friday Nights! In the July Series Ben Waters finished an amazing 6th overall.
His pure sprinting style was complemented by his Kilo and 4k form.
|Salama was left alone with the 4s.|

|Ben Waters took silver in the cat 4 Match Sprints|
Senior Track Championships come at what feels like the middle of the season. Rain only released it's hold on the steep concrete banks a couple of months ago. But now it is time to demonstrate who has the best Team Pursuit Team in Oregon - and SW Washington?
|Best 3 out of 5 Teams.|
All in all, we demonstrated boys could compete with men, lose barely, and be the most popular act in the house.
|Crowd favorite Oly Sprinters Jaden, Willy, and Joshua.|
Joshua thrilled and entertained the sun baked bystanders.
It was the loudest the audience had been all day.

|Jaden holds of the pack!|
Brad heard from outside the car window and yelled:
"Race the 3/4's!"
"Thanks a lot Brad," the post pubescent voice rang back."
|Race the 3/4s Jaden! says Brad.|
"Stop it," I ordered. "Everything is the same."
Launching a bazooka and holding it for long enough to lap the field, or at least make a selection is a tall challenge.
|Lsst lap. He has been away 11.|
|Iron Man is in hot Pursuit!|
When the race was over, Jaden came off quick in total exhaustion.
I ran over to him and exclaimed, "did you ever imagine you could do something like that?"
"I get it," he coughed out.
|Field is shattered|
|No one has a wheel.|

Four generations, one Team!
|Team Style! Tony 42, Brad 34, Jaden 16, Cliff 57|
Something always sets Cyclisme apart. Often, not speed.
It's the style.
|Para-Olympic - Style!|
|Aero - STYLE!|
|LORE Style! Nils, Trevor and Kent.|
When in doubt, always returning to these simple fundamentals, Cyclisme keeps finding ways to create a feeling of victory.
The victory was sometime heralded on the podium, and sometimes only in the heart.
This year, the "Saturday Practice" boys are leading three age divisions of the Oregon ITT Cup. Their support of each other is their strength.
|Simple STYLE! Cliff and Joshua.|
