The Final Post

Members of Team Cycle Escape –

For the past sixteen years I have done business with Cycle Escape and have built a friendship with the past and present owners Phil Jones and Sid. The shop has sponsored our team and been part of us since the team’s inception, and I’ll always look back on these years with great memories. With hard work, we have taken a small team and accomplished great things in the local cycling community. We’ve helped spread this great sport of ours, and for that we should be proud.

As you may have heard, because of the hard economic times, Cycle Escape has decided to close. Due to that, it is with a sad heart that I have decided not to continue the team. I want to thank all the sponsors who have supported us over the years; without your generosity, we could not have had the great looking team kits or put on our great cyclocross race here in Montgomery, which many racers throughout the Southeast have said is the best race venue in the Bamacross series.

I also want to thank my fellow teammates. I have enjoyed traveling and racing with all of you over the years. I have always been proud of the way we have conducted ourselves and represented our sponsors on the road and at races. Not only are each of you my fellow teammate, you are also my friend. Even though I know some of us will take different paths, when we see each other at the races or on the road, we will always be teammates.
