Youth of Today.

Race number two brought some of the Keystone Velo guys to the Winchester Cross race. Regretfully I didn't line up for this race as the long drive and some family commitments keep me home bound but our Bianchi Zurigo racer, Mike Brennaman and his son Owen, pinned on a number the event.

Mike is one of our 4s racing for KVC p/b Simplicity Cycles cross team and his 9 year old son Owen races in the Junior field. Yes folks, 9 YEARS OLD! Mike has put together a small framed trail bike for his son with drop bars and canti's and 32c nobby tires so Owen can get dirty and bump shoulders with kids who are an average of five years older than him.

I'll keep this post brief as the video is what we're focusing on. Questions are delivered by our Team Director, Sean Mealey.

Oh yeah, here's a photo of Owen remounting at Tacchino Cross, last month. Owen has been out to our 'cross practices and his level of focus for a kid his age is inspiring.
