Elgin Cycling Classic 2008

I got to enjoy Sunday morning in the Lords Park neighborhood volunteering as a corner marshal. It was a beautiful day for bike racing through the hills and turns of the tree lined streets.

Bob Mihelich of Elgin is cooling off after his first bike race. Fans, Erin and Reed found a shady spot to cheer him on.
Sgt. Glenn Theriault was busy checking on the corner marshals and keeping us supplied with water while supervising the route.

The race is possible because of the efforts of volunteers and the generosity of the sponsors:
