Well, nobody won the omnium, but there sure were a few firsts.
A first time for the Juniors in a big men's mass start event, a first for Bobby Dixon in a mass start where he won some big points sprints, and Aubery's graduation to Team Star status, finally with a full crew to command were just more building blocks of a dream.
Everyone set up the next guy. The Juniors attacked early, while B. Dixon followed the chase, and Aubery E. finished up.
Unfortunately the officials got confused about who was who.
Leadership exists in all sorts of people, but the leadership of these developing new guys - development being the soul of Cyclisme's mission, is golden when simply they develop as brothers in the Cyclisme Lore.
Few have brought more pride and glory to this club.

This BEER's for you America!
