The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.
You don't have to actually answer the questions.
Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is , none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These are no second-rate achievers.
They are the best in their fields.
But the applause dies..
Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
YOU DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER THESE EITHER..JUST THINK!!
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials..
the most money...or the most awards.
They simply are the ones who care the most.
Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life.

Not sure who these two guys are...fans would be my guess
Socalcycling has a lot to say about Rock Racing...here is a sample. Be sure to go check it out.
Bahati’s National Criterium Title Leads Rock Racing’s Prolific Day
8/18/08 - Rahsaan Bahati’s victory Sunday at the Saab USA Cycling Professional Criterium Championship proved to be the crowning moment of the most prolific day – and week – in Rock Racing’s two-year history. Bahati out-sprinted Alex Candelario (Kelly Benefit Strategies presented by Medifast) and third-place finisher Mark Hekman (Toshiba-Santo Pro Cycling) at the end of the 62-mile (100 km) race to join Rock Racing teammate Justin Williams as a winner of the coveted stars-and-stripes national championship jersey. Earlier this month, Williams captured the USA Cycling Under-23 National Criterium Championship in Anaheim. It is believed to be the first time two African-Americans have earned national cycling titles in the same discipline in the same season. “This has got to be some type of history,” Bahati said after notching his ninth win and receiving a congratulatory call from Rock Racing Team Owner Michael Ball. “There is definitely some significance to it. Perhaps we won’t see it now, but in the future it will carry some weight.” In addition to Bahati’s win in Downers Grove, Ill., Freddy Cruz, Danny Finneran, Danny Heeley and Iggy Silva captured the team pursuit for Rock Racing Sunday at the USA Cycling Junior Track National Championships, while Williams won the Brentwood Grand Prix and Oscar Sevilla finished in the top 10 overall at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.

I did not want to have some alarming title for this post, so I chose one a bit more subtle. Iggy was in a crash about 300m from the finish and broke his collarbone. From what I understand, he was in second or third spot, when someone took out his front wheel. This info was not from Iggy, since he does not remember a thing due to a concussion. I am told it was a clean break. The US National Team coach said he is doing fine and is in good spirits. I could not find the results yet, but I believe his team mate went on to get first or second place which it great. I know Big Iggy is going to ask you all to say a prayer, so I will beat him to the punch. Let's hope he is back at it soon. I know he will be, this is one tough kid.

On second thought....I will let you peruse the different results on your own. I am not sure what some of their wording means. Anyways, think of it as a treasure hunt of sorts...with no treasure.
We would like to congratulate Gina "Alfred" Barbosa and James "Der Keiser" Keiser for their California State Championship titles. I am anxiously awaiting photos to post. Both worked very hard and are very deserving of their titles.
Big Iggy has gotten back on track with his workouts and you will all be seeing him a lot more out and about. Welcome back Iggy II.

I went to USA Cycling and found this blurb that gave Iggy's results.
In the multi-event omnium competition on Wednesday, Iggy Silva (San Diego, Calif.) finished 14th overall. Competing in five events throughout the day, Silva began with a 17th-place finish in the 200-meter time trial with a mark of 12.568 seconds. Next, he placed 11th in the 5-kilometer scratch race, then 13th in the 2-kilometer individual pursuit with a time of 2:32.927. In the competition’s final two events, Silva placed 12th in the 15-kilometer points race with zero points and 14th in the kilometer time trial in 1:14.367.
