Tour of the Bitterroot - Just the Beginning

First off, John Sieber once again has posted some sick photos,

I picked the photo of Alex Gallegos for the home page because I was pumped he came out, raced, and raced well. He had the competive look. Check out Longmire's face in the background. It's almost like he's saying Gallego's still has it. Keeping it on the cat 4/Masters theme, two shout outs to local Missoulians in the crit. Doug "Dale" Shryock and Kyle Shannon were their team's top lieutenants. I was impressed with both riders. Kyle attacked again and again early on to soften the race for Ali G, and Dale went on a 6 lap solo breakaway that confused the peleton and set the stage for a two up sprint between Ali G and Longmire. Overall, FVV had the strongest team in the race but two riders stole the show; Brian Frykman, and Howard Williams. I picked Frykman heavily, and he did not disappoint. However, H Williams had the performance of the weekend. I'll be the first to admit I underestimated Howard. What a great weekend. 1st in the time trial with a 40.35. That's a great time that would have put him 2nd in the cat 3's. It was great to see someone challenge Frykman who has had a steady lock on this category. I think both riders (Frykman and Williams) are ready to cat up. Great battle! Props to my man Twohig for his good weekend. Good placement in the crit to take the cat 4 win, and great consistent riding. Also, Willy Z continues his consistent riding. Shout out to Team Multerro. These dudes have the best attitude in the bunch, and are great representatives for MT Cycling. Plus they have sick kits.
