I took my 8th MCF ROY competition award this year. Consistency pays. However, aside from dedicated team work, it’s my competition that pushes me to my limit and one rider in particular really helped me to dig deep. The TimmerCentral Rider of the Year award goes to Dan Casper.
Daniel and I duked it out at every time trial this year includig the track. His passion for the sport is evident with his intensity on and off the bike. One of Daniel’s stunning performances came at the Black Dog Stock Bike Challenge where he destroyed the competition and set a high bar with a blistering time of 14:58. Who knows what this time would have equated to in a no holds barred full-on time trial. I look forward to 2009 knowing that we’ll be battling it out again and pushing each other faster and farther. Dan also turns 42 today.
