L' Abitibi Update

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.

Here is the results page for L'Abitibi. I have broken them down a bit too for your viewing pleasure.

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.

South Africa Blurb...

Track racing involves a lot of sitting around and waiting

Iggy with Colleen and Kit

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.

Headed to South Africa

I have been getting a lot of updates from my sources all over the globe. I am going to sift through the info and let you take what you want. I was at the track last night and really missed seeing Iggy out there. I have not seen the kid in person for some time. Got to speak with Kevin Schiller on the rail and it was great to see how happy he was for Iggy. He knew all about Iggy's whereabouts and progress. He told me it was just a couple of years ago that Iggy was some young kid at the track and now he is traveling all over the world. Kevin, in case you have not had the opportunity to meet him, is so humble and soooo fast. Class act. Speaking of class acts, Tim 'Sugar' Jackson, was at the track last night, as a spectator, of course. His recovery is going very well. His steel Masi track bike still looked ridable after the beating it took. I was happy to see Andrew Lee riding with the A's, great job Andrew.

Day 2
Kit and Iggy rode better today, better exchanges, good spirits.
Kit 8th in the miss+out, Iggy 7th in the scratch.
Guy and Austin 4th in the Madison stay at 9th overall.
Kit and Iggy now in 11th.

Iggy and Kit arrived in Italy by way of Belgium. Today they will be doing part of a 3 day u-23 race. I will keep you posted as I get info. I would also like you to check out Kit's photos online. Check back often, he updates them quite frequently. From the looks of the photos, I think razors are illegal or just very scarce over there.

Photo's from Kim Michaels

Wow! These are some very nice photos. Thank you Kim. I apologize for the lack of posts. The offices at Iggy racing have been moving and my contributing editors have been on vacation. Iggy was in Belgium and was on his way to Italy last I heard. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did.
