Bill Ron is showing improvement. His wife Thekla reports that he is able to move himself into the car from his wheelchair, and that he has even tried to adjust the brakes (see pic)! He still has significant physical limitations on his right side (notice that he is resting his right arm on towels), and his speech is difficult to understand. But there is progress. We now have a Home Visit Schedule you can sign into for one-on-one time with Bill. Personal engagement is extremely valuable for his therapy. The funding drive has reached 80% of the goal. Here is the GoFundMe for Bill, with a FB Page for status reports. Please Like the Page and share with your Friends. Another great donation is the wheelchair ramp from Jim Hannon and Beach Cities Cycling Club. Thank you.

Masters Track Nats 2019: SBW team was amazing. So many breakthrough performances (e.g. Seidel, Traylor, Mattes, Appel), Jim Kloss' WRs, and sponsor Gerry Agnew's championship form.

On March 31st, LAVRA volunteers were recognised by Velo Sports Center staff and Coordinator Elise Traylor for their service in 2018 helping to make the track successful. Then Cedric Washington was given the prestigious CalBikeLaw Community Service Award by sponsor Gerry Agnew for his outstanding support to education and training of new riders and young kids learning track cycling.

SBW AWARDS Picnic LUAU Sunday, March 24, was great. Here is a walkabout video taken as we started eating. And here is Tony Wang winning one of the many doorprizes, always a crowd-pleaser. Later at the Velo Sports Center vel, we presented the club's World Championship trophy to Gerry Agnew, and the National Championship trophy to daughter Sarah Munoz. The trophies are made by Matt Gorski and Ted Ernst.

SBW 2018 Pizza Party was great. See private FaceBook Club Page for more photos. A few at right (missing Sarah Munoz - Best Woman). Walkabout video here

Masters Track 2018 UCI World Championships have completed, with SBW riders once again bringing home gold/silver/bronze medals, a world record, and great experiences with new friends from around the world. Thanks to all the volunteers, from all clubs, for the great help. Here's a summary in roughly reverse order of occurence over 8 days.

Gerry Agnew successfully defended his world title in the 2k pursuit. Jim Kloss won Sprint Gold in an overpowering performance. Daughter Sarah Munoz earned bronze in both the ITT pursuit and the 500m. She topped off her great performances with the most exciting finish I saw in the evening sessions. She came from 4th in intermediate points total late in the race, took over with two to go, held everybody off and won the final sprint, climbing to Silver! The crowd loved it. Elise Traylor, Char/Kar twins, and former SBW Vikki Appel got silver in the 4000m W TTT, just missing out Gold after a premature finishing gun threw the outcome to the officials. Pictured here with Coach Roach. Leo Longo and team got Silver in the 4k Pursuit. Kurt Sato repeats as World Champion in the 500m TT, just a fraction over his WR last year! Check out his world-famous start from about the 20m point. Kurt set a new WR ("Best Time" in UCI masters jargon) of 11.356 in the 200m TT for Sprint qualification. Kurt later got silver in the Sprint. Jim "Doc" Kloss earned Gold in the 500m, in just a shade over his World Best from last year.
