Wow! Filipinos showing stronger involvement at the UCI
Track World Cup held at ADT Event Center in Los
Angeles! Victor Espiritu sponsored by Rolando Hizu
competing in the 15 Km (60 lap) Points Race Qualifying
Round scheduled for the 18th Friday. And Steve Pelaez
competing in the 7.5 Km Scratch Race Qualifying Event
for Saturday and the 1 Km Time Trial later that
evening. We also had a fare share of ADOBO Velo
members and other Pinoys in the audience together with
Junior Champ Coryn and Dad Wally Rivera, Manny Legaspi
of, and former National Cycling Team
members Deo Asuncion and Wilson Blas.

As most of us know about Victor Espiritu’s headaches
from his last minute travel arrangements, he managed
to finish his race by riding wisely and defensively.
He was able to keep up with the pace and avoid a
crash. Out of 17 riders, 3 did not finish, so we all
think despite of his situation, he had a respectable
finish. As for Steve, his race was brutally fast where
he had to close a few gaps without any help. He showed
a lot of aggressiveness and that looked promising. His
Time Trial event was held in the evening session where
he was paired against Michael Christensen of Denmark.
He started off the gate very smooth and fast as he led
the first lap and placed 19th when the event finished.

If we look at the overall experience 2 weeks ago up to
this weekend to include the previous 2 World Cups, we
learned so much from our continued volunteering,
managing last year’s participation of Deo Asuncion,
and then for these 2 great cyclists! It was a small
gathering of great minds and influential people around
Pinoy Cycling, a reunion of old friends, and created
new friends also. All these things will make us better
prepared for the next UCI Track Word Cups in our
backyards. Finally, certificates of appreciation were
delightfully given to Victor and Steve as this was
also very meaningful to all ADOBO Velo members. I
personally felt that we created an important link to
our counterparts back home and here in the States. We
thank you very much for accepting ADOBO Velo Fil-Am
Cycling Club into the mainstream of Philippine
