IBC Racing - Thanks for a great 2008

Photo montage created by Julie Lefebvre
Let’s talk about IBC racing. We’re calling 2008 the year of smiles. Maybe we won’t call it that but it was a great year for the team. The photo montage above tells the story. It’s obvious that every member loves to ride and race their bicycles. They represented their sponsors and the sport with class, always smiling, always having fun. Thanks to everyone involved. We’re looking forward to the 2009 season.

New to the Crew

Thom Parsons is the Newton store's service department head honcho and he expects, demands actually, to be called Mr. Manager by all those that serve him.

Anyhow, congratulations are in order. He had a very successful racing season and claimed first place in the Root 66 MTB series. He races in the Pro/Semi pro open class (on a 29er single speed) and competed against some very tough dudes. On top of that he’s now been selected as a member of the Gary Fisher 29er Crew and will race for the team in 2009.

Thom is a dedicated mountain biker and a great ambassador for the sport. He will begin leading NEMBA group rides in Cutler park and hopes to develop a youth MTB ride program, also at Cutler park. To keep his gigantic ego in check please stop in, insist on seeing the service manager, and tell him he looks fat.
