A hammerfest! If you're riding with dplex get ready, this boy can ride! I spent some time beside him at the pre-ride at First Union, and for a little while at the beginning of the actual ride - and then didn't see him again until the end. He's a fun guy with a fierce competitiveness that's seen him move from a Cat 5 racer to cat 3 in just a year. WoW!! Read his race reports, he's a good writer, too.

Had a brief chance to ride with dplex at FirstUnion. It was only brief because he and the rest of the "Lost Tribe" didn't hang around too long before putting the hammer down. He's a good guy who knows biking. A bit on the quiet side, he lets his riding do the talking.

Have you ever ridden the Fall race series in St. Louis, The Gateway Cup? I see some of your team there ever year.
