Congratulations go out to Miss Yvonne on her first Sunday Ride with the group. Her first ride went off without a hitch. Her second ride... now that's a different story. If you don't know... you had better ask somebody! Just suffice it to say that she beat everybody back to the finish line.

MDCC Brings Home Gold!
MacArthur "Dave" Davis slows down just long enough for a picture with some of his championship hardware. Here he is with (4) out of (5) 1st place medal finishes, (1) 2nd place and the championship win at HFP/Wheelie Fun racing series in Ohio 2005. He is the 2005 Division Champion-HFP Duathlon series. In competition he scored 758 out of a possible 770 points (almost a perfect score!) Big UPS to Dave!

Excellent time had by all. The MTCC-Ohio fellas put on a great all day event which concluded with the Ohio State Criterium Championships. The usual suspects from the Travel Squad were there including a surprise edition... "Rollin' Reggie Spratling", pictured below, back to the camera.

2005 Celebration of Cycling Charity Ride

It was a wet day for this ride. I'd like to thank everyone who showed anyway. Particularly Ventura, who taught us all how to turn a triple into a double. (See the repair pictures below.) Anyway, we won the contest for highest percentage of club members in attendance.

2005 Peach Of A Ride
The 2003 Peach of a Ride was the first ride that the MDCC ever did. It's a nice ride put on by the Slowspokes of Macomb. Good post ride meal. Though not pictured, we had a nice caravan on this ride. Where was the rest of the club you might be asking yourself... I don't know. Maybe they aren't allowed to travel.
Smooth Eddie-Texas Ride For The Roses
Here's the Tennessee Chapter President, "Smooth Eddie", representing the MDCC at Lance Armstrong's Ride For The Roses in Austin, TX this summer. We met Eddie at the Blue Water Ramble in Michigan in 2004 and we've been trying to keep up with him ever since. Ride Strong Eddie!

The beginning of the Sunday Training Ride. I wonder who is that going off the front?
