FROM ARDEN of ADOBOVELO:Wow! Filipinos showing stronger involvement at the UCITrack World Cup held at ADT Event Center in LosAngeles! Victor Espiritu sponsored by Rolando Hizucompeting in the 15 Km (60 lap) Points Race QualifyingRound scheduled for the 18th Friday. And Steve Pelaezcompeting in the 7.5 Km Scratch Race Qualifying Eventfor Saturday and the 1 Km Time Trial later thatevening. We also had a fare share of ADOBO Velomembers and other Pinoys in the audience together withJunior Champ Coryn and Dad Wally Rivera, Manny Legaspiof mygringos.com, and former National Cycling Teammembers Deo Asuncion and Wilson Blas.As most of us know about Victor Espiritu’s headachesfrom his last minute travel arrangements, he managedto finish his race by riding wisely and defensively.He was able to keep up with the pace and avoid acrash. Out of 17 riders, 3 did not finish, so we allthink despite of his situation, he had a respectablefinish. As for Steve, his race was brutally fast wherehe had to close a few gaps without any help. He showeda lot of aggressiveness and that looked promising. HisTime Trial event was held in the evening session wherehe was paired against Michael Christensen of Denmark.He started off the gate very smooth and fast as he ledthe first lap and placed 19th when the event finished.If we look at the overall experience 2 weeks ago up tothis weekend to include the previous 2 World Cups, welearned so much from our continued volunteering,managing last year’s participation of Deo Asuncion,and then for these 2 great cyclists! It was a smallgathering of great minds and influential people aroundPinoy Cycling, a reunion of old friends, and creatednew friends also. All these things will make us betterprepared for the next UCI Track Word Cups in ourbackyards. Finally, certificates of appreciation weredelightfully given to Victor and Steve as this wasalso very meaningful to all ADOBO Velo members. Ipersonally felt that we created an important link toour counterparts back home and here in the States. Wethank you very much for accepting ADOBO Velo Fil-AmCycling Club into the mainstream of PhilippineCycling.
