FIRST WIN OF 2010!!

Paul, Sal, and Eddie drove down to race FBF yesterday and Sal, Thomas, and Eddie did the 40+ race. FBF because is great because it’s always windy, and a hard race because of it. Brooklyn
Velo Force and Deno’s Wonder Wheels were the teams to watch, and it was 12 laps at 2.2 miles a lap. From the gun, Sal took the first flyer right into the head wind followed by Thomas, and the team kept trading attacks. Right before the 8th lap, Eddie countered with 4 to go, and was off alone hoping someone would join him. The laps ticked down though and nobody came to help, and nobody caught him either. A chase group containing teammate Thomas Pennell formed behind, but never came within 30 secs. of Eddie, allowing Thomas to stay fresh enough to out-sprint his rivals and take second making it a 1/2 for the team.

It was an excellent day for the team as everyone got some hard racing in their legs.

Salvatore Abbruzzese

Salvatore Abbruzzese can TT extremely well, that he got 3rd in the recent Mengoni in a break he initiated (his third of the race) and that he always reminds us to race with fire in our bellies.
