A little while back one of our club members, Tony, emailed us the following description of some bike races in Pensacola in the 80s. The photos were too precious to not share. Enjoy the pre-carbon trip down memory lane!
We did a race in downtown Pensacola back somewhere around the mid-80’s; it was called the Fiesta of Five Flags Criterium. The pictures are from that race. I’m the one sitting up with no hands in the one pic, trying to intimidate the rest of the riders into thinking I may fall and take them out; Aldo is behind. There’s another of us waiting at the start for the rest of the riders in our category to line up. The one of Larry shows him blowing by the field in the final sprint.
