Xtry! Xtry! Read All About It! Cycling Not Just for Kids!

Well, I'll be hornswoggled! How do ya like that?

I mean, whoda thunk it? ;-D

The headline to a news story I came across just struck me as funny. ;-D

The headline of the article by Bobby Swofford, of the Times Record, of Ft. Smith, Ar., had me wondering where he'd been hiding for the last 20 years ( At least! )...

Cycling Not Just for Youngsters

Then I began to read the article:

Cycling isn’t just for the young anymore, and that was apparent on the second day of the Celebrity Classic cycling event in Van Buren.

John Agnitsch and James Corcoran were just two of the 45 riders who took part, and although the two had different results, they share the same thoughts on the sport.

“You get out there and it is just you and the sky,” said Agnitsch, a 52-year-old Oklahoma City native. “I did the best I could do, but these guys are the best and one guy beat some of the pros yesterday.”

Corcoran had tremendous success over the weekend as he won the Arkansas State championship for his division on Saturday, and followed that up with a win in the 45 and older event on Sunday.

I don't normally concern myself with the Racing Scene, but when I saw that headline I had to see what the Oct.1 story was about. ;-D

Read the short, interesting, story here.
