PASSION FOR TRADITION – A strong hello and “Thank You” to all…

by on Sep.05, 2009, under chronicle, video

The 2009 racing season is quickly winding down… 

.

A strong hello and “Thank You” to all our sponsors, supporters and friends from JIMENEZ Velo Sport, a Montclair, New Jersey team that seeks to recover the romance of traditional road cycling and racing. These days it is easy to find yourself robotic on the bike staring down at a gadget and worrying yourself silly if you don’t/can’t generate certain numbers. It is nothing but a race through endless data and analyses, attempting to give us a clearer picture of our own world, a world we know. But their race to depict our world often results, not in a clearer view, but rather in a merely virtual world - a world where caricatures replace flesh-and-blood effort by passionate, rugged individuals. For this reason JIMENEZ Velo Sport was founded, so that the old-school romantic may have a home and the things that have been lost may be recovered out of the sadness of a day gone by – and become familiar again with the reason we first took up cycling – that we might be allowed to enjoy the bike FREELY. So thank you all for making this 2009 racing season so much fun. A special THANKS to John McGowan and Rick Garrigan of ASPEN EAST Health and Wellness Center.

We also thank photographer Jeff Kubu for all the great action shots he took of our guys in many road races.

NOTE: In no way shape or form is JVS against training tools, and/or technology, but can we at least build a foundation first, and get to a decent level of racing where that technology can actually be beneficial. Let’s say, becoming a very good Cat 2 racer or higher for the up and coming “young” racer.

GLENN HERBERT GOULD – “The Lack of Passion is Unforgivable!”

by on Aug.24, 2009, under chronicle, video

The Lack of PASSION is unforgivable!
 
Here’s the Meastro himself, Glenn Herbert Gould. I know this has nothing to do with cycling, but just watch with what passionate intoxication he plays the piano. There is no doubt in my mind that there’s a spiritual element to this type of greatness that only a few can tap into. Sadly, he’s no longer here. (September 25, 1932 – October 4, 1982)
 
Can you image running into the cycling equivalent of this man? Or discovering a very young radical roadie with such passion and gift met with intelligence, a fortunate physical talent and a respect for the sport of cycling? You cap that with years and years of hard labor and suffering and there “may” emerge not a champion, but a Campionissimo. (what the Italian tifosi’s call - ”A Champion’s CHAMPION”)
.
Our generation have not seen such a champion – a champion with passion mingled with beauty and grace on the bike. If we were to look for one we’re going to have to look back to the ’60s. To the days of the great Frenchman, Jacques Anquetil.
 
Here’s Glenn “Herbert” Gould playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.5 “Emperor” - 2nd Movement.

2009 New Jersay Masters Road Race – 6/13/09

by on Jun.15, 2009, under chronicle, video

 what can one say about the man but that he’s simply, NUMERO UNO!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ROGER ASPHOLM and his WESTWOOD VELO TEAM
“WINNER OF THE 2009 NEW JERSEY STATE MASTERS ROAD RACE”
June 13, 09
__________
Roger Aspholm has won this race before and his team was brilliant, but this time he did so with a phenomenal attack on the 2nd climb of lap number two. There were those who actually gave chase, them being, the super strong Ed Ceccolini, Steve Dioslaki, Tom Shebell, myself, and some others that I have no names for. The frustrating thing for me was that the peloton would not organized a ferociuos chase and work together to bring the break back which was only 21 seconds ahead of us, it seemed as though the rest of the field was content with just finishing the race after Aspholm attacked, or maybe they were waiting, hoping against hope for an opportunity that would never come.
.
…as for me and my 17th place, well, I guess re-build for the next race – for the long and high road always evokes thoughts of hope. I leave you all with this little video produced by my good friend Brian Rombough.
