Sending huge props to Shayne for racing in the Fidelity Gran Prix of Beverly tonight. Shayne has had a hard recovery from his crash two weeks ago and still has pain in his hip from the fall. He went out there and raced tonight anyway... which proves his mental toughness or total insanity. Great job, Coach!
Also sending kudos to Gran Prix race director Paul Boudreau and Essex County Velo for bringing back the women's field for this year's race. (Something they had to eliminate in the past due to financial reasons.) Thank you, ECV, for supporting women's cycling! Bravo!
