Went up to watch the Charlotte Pro Crit race. Karl and I hung out with Crusty who yelled at his team for 90min...that boys got some issues ;-) but we all know that.

It was a great race for HealthNet...They had a guy in an early break which forced Navigators to chase pretty hard to bring it back which fried them and then with about 10 laps to go Frank Pipp attacked with another guy and got 30s on the field, worked together and Frank got the win...and $25k.

Pipp is a good guy...he stayed in our guest room for a couple of nights earlier this year after Georgia and this is definitely his biggest career win. He's been riding very strong this year and is someone to watch at USPro in Greenville.

Dan Schmatz is another guy who stayed with me a few years ago...he had a good ride tonight bridging to a pretty dangerous break late in the race. He only had 2 other teammates with him tonight.

HERE are some pic's I took. I like focusing on the guys suffering in the back!
