James Lalonde Wins on Ellis

Well, the first two races for James on his new Ellis cross bike couldn't have gone better. He e-mailed me on Sat. evening to say he'd won the Cat. 3 race in Sun Prairie, Wi.

Today Lisa and I drove out to watch the second race of the weekend at the Angell Park Speedway and root James on.

There was some early jockeying for position, James is the last one in line here.

A shot of the remount after the only set of barriers and subsequent run up.

James and his Velo Trocadero teammate pulled away from the pack and rode together for most of the race.

Here they are on the deserted far side of the course.

James leading as the race nears the end.

The finish, James and Ellis Cycles rack up win #2.

James and I pose for the after race shot. I must say, it was pretty cool watching James win on one of my bikes. Now the question is, will James upgrade to Cat. 2 for the rest of the season? I'll keep updating as the season progresses, maybe you'll even see some shots of me on my cross bike!?

Looking forward to the Ellis Cycles jerseys too!!
