That toothy character we all know and love as Cleve R Beaver has once again gnawed his way through a forest of competitors in Huntsville, Al. . Cleve buried all his competition taking the win in the road race and the crit, leaving all others saying "DAM!" . Full story to follow as soon as he finds his dictionary.
Team Myogenesis holds strong through the midpoint of the season with Cleve Blackwell securing a "W" last weekend in Rome. He tested his strength and perseverance last weekend as he tried again to bring home a win at the Spring City Cycling Classic in Huntsville, Alabama. Blackwell decided to save his cards and go for the Master's 35+ victories as the team needs to be as fresh as possible for the upcoming Charlotte, NC Presbyterian Criterium. Myogenesis rising star Michael Lanham, Alabama's finest Travis Sherman and Ron Williams, as well as Griffin's love child Casey Magner would round out the boys' roster for the 2-day event.
Saturday, July 22nd had the field doing a 16 mile loop around the base of Keel Mountain with a scorcher of a hill climb Time Trial following the road race. Landrum, Sherman, and Williams would test their legs and lungs in the Pro 1/2 race with 5 laps around the mountain. Williams got into an aggressive break from the gun; however, the field proved to be too strong and it was reeled in with less than a lap to go. Michael helped counter the break and it came down to the sprint. He won the bronze medal in the Alabama State Championship Road Race. Williams and Sherman finished nicely in the pack, deciding their work was complete for the day.
Cleve went after it from the gun in the Master's35+ Road Race, a circuit of 4 16 mile laps. Throwing in attack after attack was the ever-strong and witty Doug Pomeranz, along with Alabama's Andy Maddox, making the break a tough ride. After smoothing out the pace, the three would eventually gain enough time on the field for a sprint for the Gold. Andy led the two men out with 1k to go, and Cleve threw the hammer down, out sprinting Doug at the line. Cleve would only hope that he had saved enough for the Time Trial.
After pre-driving the course with a slew of curse words climbing the 19% grade in the car, Blackwell had his work cut out for him. No time trial bike would suffice, so he opted to do the race on his Blue Rc7. It was an excellent decision, and Blackwell would torture himself for a 2nd place finish, behind by only 16 seconds on the 10 mile course after all was said and done. A good night's dinner with Michael and Miss Holiday would cap off the night and prepare them all for the next day.
Sunday, July 23 started off surprisingly cool. Cyclists were complaining that they should have brought arm warmers but alas, who would have thought this in July in Alabama? The competition proved to be hot though as the Master's men came to the line for the Crit. A few attacks would prove no match for Blackwell, Jim Brock and Mike Hurley, both from Bob's Bikes in Birmingham, who now proudly carry the Myogenesis Nutrition line. The three would race hard, eventually lapping the field. Again down to the sprint, Cleve attacked on the final hill, securing another victory for Myogenesis. Deciding he felt strong enough, Blackwell would wait for his other team mates to race for Casey in the Pro 1/2 later on that afternoon.
The Pro 1/2 was too hot, making it a difficult race for the Myogenesis boys. Blackwell and Magner got into a successful break but after Blackwell went for a prime, another attack went and left a chase group of 6 to follow, Eric Murphy, Matt Winstead, and Michael Olheiser. Struggling to regain their composure, the chase group would sprint for 4th place, with Cleve getting 6th. All in a day's work.
See the boys in action for FOUR days at the Gwinnett Bike Fest as they make final preparations for the Presbyterian Criterium in Charlotte, NC.
