Bill has provisional status as the new MD Capital Region RBA, pending completion of initial 200K brevets on May 31 in Urbana, Md. and July 19. Once given full status, Bill plans a fall 300K and a full ACP series in 2009.
The July brevet will be the traditional Warrenton, Va. 200K, which is most lovely in the spring but is always a terrific ride — and one of our faster 200Ks, though it has some steep rollers in the second half. It was my first 200K back in 1996 and I nearly keeled over trying to finish it. A few years later I set my fastest time for a 200K yet, which I’ll probably never match again by myself.
Congratulations Bill and to D.C. Randonneurs, which has a bright future ahead. And, thanks to the RUSA board for acting quickly in favor of Bill’s application.
