Teeuwen Winner


Mike Hosang hits the thin bridge at Freedom Park.

I have made several false starts in the past to write about Mike. He is not someone you know or even talk to, Mike is someone you experience. I will work on explaining that in a future post.











He was awarded the annual Peter Teeuwen award today. Each year, Pam Zimmerman and the Teeuwens recognize racers who made significant contributions to local racing. Pam recognized Mike for his Cat 2 and 30+ placings as well as his work in promoting Trashmore Cross/ VA State Cross Championships. (photo by Jimmy D.)













No one wanted to cut into the cool cake at the Teeuwen dinner. This is the original Tidewater Bicycle Association racing jersey that Peter, his juniors and the rest of the team wore. (photo by Jimmy D.)

Jennifer made the cake. Her husband Tim was a junior on Peter's team. Read about it here.
