Team Announcement!

Hello racing fans! It's been an interesting (albeit confusing) year of transition for M1 Racing. We ended a relationship with a title sponsor and when the money ran out, a bunch of us migrated over to Team Racemenu/mix1, which unfortunately left a bunch of riders twisting in the wind. This is not something I'm pleased with and hopefully we will make this right in the upcoming cross season and 2011 and beyond. The good news is that some new sponsors are in place as well as some old ones. The bad news is that this will require some new apparel, which is always expensive. We will be sticking with Pactimo though, the extra cost is worth it. Now the question is going to be: who is left on M1 Racing? and will anyone new be joining us? I'm not exactly sure how to answer the first question, and the 2nd question is ABSOLUTELY. Let this serve as our official announcement that we will be aggressively recruiting road racers to our team in the coming weeks. All are encouraged to inquire, regardless of category, men and women, juniors and masters. M1 Racing is going to be populated with a large cross section of New England racers in 2011. If you are unhappy with your current club or team, we encourage you to reach out to us. I can be reached at:

Franz Wright

The old M1 Racing uniforms have a quotation on the back of the collar, by a Pulitzer prize winner whose work opened my eyes to some things, during a period when my father was in chemo, radiation, fighting lung cancer.
I'm saddened to report to you that Franz himself announced that he has been diagnosed with lung cancer this past week. He's a distant FB friend to me and he does not know that an elite New England bike race team has ridden tens of 1000s of miles carrying his words and his name: "We are created by being destroyed" -Franz Wright "The Letter"

I know that some of you might be saying to yourselves Franz who?? If your interest is piqued, here is the program in which I discovered him:
"The Letter" is read beginning at about 7:00.

I'd like to take one of the last remaining M1 jerseys and have everyone on the team sign it for him.

Tour de New York is Coming!

My good friend Todd Scheske is in the news again. Between being a promoter of races such as the Rochester Twilight Criterium and the Tour de New York and being President of the very prestigious Genesee Valley Cycling Club, Todd helps me to train effectively and to time my peaks correctly. Today’s news article at VeloNews is pretty exciting, and if I’m not mistaken, the Tour de New York will also feature a downtown criterium for women, juniors and masters, with the Pro crit being the Feature Presentation of course. That’s another excuse for me to head out there and spend some time with my younger brother, who is finishing up his degree at Rochester Institute of Technology. As a team affiliated with the GVCC, maybe we can head out there as a Team and kick some tail!
Thanks for reading.

2009 Boston Mayor's Cup Pro-Am Redux

RaceMenu/MIX 1 Racing lined up at the start of this epic late season "criterium royale". From the six of us, three survived to see the finish: Alain Ferry (39th) , Adam Sternfield (67th) and Matt Kressy (64th). Here are a few pictures which I just found at the official event website. For me the race was too fast - I had some very serious lower back problems all August long and had to stop riding. My form went kaput and some desperation training in September was not fruitful. I'd like to underscore the fact that this was a Pro-Am criterium, populated by not less than 25 pro riders, out of the 100+ entrants. Official results indicate that quite a few middle aged hard men had the mojo to race with pros who are 1/2 of their age. Adam Sternfield (pictured below) and Matt Kressy (above) set a great example to follow for young guns like Alain and I..

Bill Doonan leads the way on the dirt

Click here: Bill Doonan on
Bill raced 17 cyclocross events this past season! I didn't even know this was possible unless you traveled all over the northeast. Well apparently, he did, and he completed every event he entered. We salute you Bill!
