RCR’s Rider of the Month…FEBRUARY

20 03 2008

Alright, I refuse to let another week go by without naming the big, bad man who took the second Rider of the Month for the 2008 season.

Everyone deals with challenges during the off-season. It it always tough to go out and ride when the weather is not favorable, or you always have something else you “should” be doing…

 Although you might have thought your off-season was trying, it was nothing compared to our February Rider of the Month, Adam “Turtle” Jablonski!

Adam  got hit by a car while on a ride this winter, and pretty much broke his back. A lot of other fellas would have just packed it in for the season, but not AJ. He came to the Bellingham training camp and drove the “Sag Wagon” all weekend. As soon as the Doc gave him the all clear, he was back on the trainer racking up the hours like Maggie Backstedt.

If he has this kind of grit and determination OFF the bike, live in fear for the day he rolls up to the line ON the bike!

Congrats Adam!

Wow, I’m honored. I think I’ll quit riding this month and just bask in the glory.

Seriously though, I want to thank everyone again for their support this past winter. All my teammates, thanks for the encouragement, Robert for saving me a bed at training camp, Steve at the shop for his very generous support, and Randy for the nickname. It was great to know I was still part of a community of people who cared even when I wasn’t getting out of bed for days… let alone hurting you all on team rides. I’ve still got quite a way to go with PT, but I’m back out there and hope to be jumping on to the back of some pelotons in about a month.
