tandem at the Diamond Derby
these guys captured the spirit of the day
they rode the Open Category with red coats and smiles
not sure if they even broke a sweat
to their surprise and many others... they won the Open Event!
the lesson of the tortoise and the hare is taught once again
here my ten year old son on a mountain bike in street clothes gets passed by a racer on a narrow tire road bike who may have signed up for the wrong category
CycleLife also carried the spirit of the day... but at this moment the dropping of the open field looked a little like "sandbagging"
the gentlemanly thing to do would have been to pull off after the first or second lap
once realizing that the "open category" was for non-racer types
