Mike: Father, Cyclist, Poolie, Dancer, and Teammate

Mike's dramatic showing at Sunday's Falcon Lake race (2 flats during and finished on a flat), combined with his top of the GC finish in the FGBC Giro d'Italia pool indicates what those of us already know. Whatever Mike does, he does with unparalleled vigour, determination, and an unwavering sense of purpose. "Big ring, big ring..." is more than a slogan to Mike—it's a way of life.

Mostly on the strength of Mike's broad shoulders and Team RRR's dominance in the aforementioned Giro pool, RRR finds itself in a dead heat with our FGBC rivals. This is the stuff movies are made of, right Dr. H?

The scoreboard will change somewhat within the next few days with tomorrow night's Wednesday Night Race Series #2 and Sunday's Back 40 enduro in Morden. While I can't make it to WNRS #2 due to a violin recital (at which I may attempt to play U Can't Touch This), there's a rumour that Lars may sign in for the event...time will tell. Brad, The Impaler, will follow up his Jens Voigt-like breakaway on Saturday's Spring Ride with appearances at the WNRS #2 and the Back 40. Watch out for Brad...like Lance, he's getting stronger and stronger with each outing—trust me, he has the same steely look of resolve behind those Raybans.
