Giro di Coppi Day!

One demanding course: try riding 50-75 miles on this!

The Men Who Register

One of the toughest but most scenic races in the Washington, DC area is that hosted by my racing club, Squadra Coppi. The Giro di Coppi is a 12.5 mile circuit through hilly, green Maryland countryside and is usually held in oppressive heat and humidity but this year there was a welcome respite as the day was glorious and the racing hard and enthusiastic. I manned the registration desk today and entered the Cat 1/2/3 racers.

A Big Winner: Ramon Benitez of Glenwood, MD of the 40+ Masters class
and his prize: the famous Fausto Coppi bobblehead trophy!
