As the first season for the High Gear/Trek/WW Elite Team draws to a close, the team director, Jim Eichvalds, reflects on what great strides the team has made in their first season. Not only are they getting impressive results, they are also becoming the team to watch in terms of exemplifying the benefits of team work.
Watching the 45+ race today was like watching a documentary of what this team is about. Teamwork. Ed B and Ed T absolutely burying themselves for Dave. It has been that kind of season, I hope you have all enjoyed it as much as I have. We have something to build on here and I know the best is yet to come. Thanks to all of the riders for being a part of it. And of course, thanks to Rone Lewis and the staff at High Gear Cyclery, Rich Carolan and the Carolan foundation, Trek Bikes, Bontrager, Capo and Shimano for their unwavering support. We all did our best this season not only as bike racers but as ambassadors of the great sport of cycling. What I heard today from our peers is what I have been hearing all season long - "You High Gear guys do things the right way". I am humbled to be a part of it!!
