ESTO ES MUNDO CICLISTA. Enero 31,2011. Miami FL. EUA. Estimados ciclistas amigos mios:
Hoy tengo ganas de descargarles todo lo que siento en cuanto a el ciclismo que estamos viviendo aqui en el Sur de la Florida. Ahi les va:
Ya estoy cansado de ver lo mismo de siempre, de que nos manipulen directamente con las fechas y carrears lejos de aqui. Que por pagar mas or por cualquier otra boberia ( Puntos, Ranking, Jerseys ) fastidian a los promotores locales y nos roban nuestras posibilidades de hacer un mejor ciclismo local y regional. Ya me tienen bien cansado con lo misma estrategia de siempre. Este año puedo hablar con mas propiedad, porque ya estoy bien enpapado de como trabaja el negocio del ciclismo en la Florida, porque lo han convertido en un puro negocio de intereses, solamente donde algunos pocos dominan la situacion por tener una buena organizacion con recursos y que no da chance a mas nadie. Ellos le pasan la cierra a cualquiera, hasta ha el mas experimentado de los promotores si es necesario, solo para imponer sus beneficios propios y nada mas y no en Pro del Desarrollo del Ciclismo en nuestra Zona y de nuestros promotores locales per se. Estoy cansado de las regulaciones creadas a forma de manipular y controlar a los ciclistas y promotores que hay, para hacer una carrera o cualquier otro evento ciclistico, los permisos y relglas innecesarios y de como los ciclistas y eventos son manipulados por estas organizaciones que no son mas que Lobos disfrasados de Ovejas. Miren amigos ciclistas, soporten y ayuden a sus promotores locales y concentrense no en los premios que dan y que solo algunos pueden obtener, pero que si les van ha cobrar bien por registrase. Ahorren sus pesos y corran mas localmente. No se dejen manipular mas. Hagamos otro tipos de ciclismo y de carreras como de rutas tambien y seamos unidos y mas leales con nuestros promotores locales. Admiro a todos esos ciclistas y equipos de ciclismo ( Cycling Teams ) de nuestra Zona que son inteligentes, no se dejan manipular y dan soporte a sus promotores locales totalmente como son los Teams de: Sun Cycling, Big Wheels, Team Cocos, Team Performance, Bike America, y otros muchos mas equipos que asistieron a la ultima carreara efectauda ayer Enero 30, 2011 por Fernando y la Rosewwod Series en el Brian Piccolo, de Cooper City.

JANUARY2, 2011: Key Biscayne, FL. USA: What a Spectacular day, today at our Key Biscayne. The temperature, the clear blue sunny sky and the traffic were perfect. Everybody was there with a New Year resolution. Wanting to get to get in better shape. We had plenty of old and new cycling friends in La Carreta, sharing a good Cuban Coffee, plenty of good conversations, good plans for the new cycling season and a lot of bicycling riding of all levels for sure.
The hold place was full of energy, motivation and positive vibrations. Well, I am happy that I rode today on Key Biscayne with a few good friends and also saw many of my friends going in all directions riding solos or with other groups, but all trying to live life and enjoying the freedom that cycling can give to all those who love this sport.
IC3 of Miami Florida, is working to bring: Rides for all cycling levels, Criteriums, Training Races and hopefully a Championship Series all at low cost to you.
Solon and Live Cycling, Ride, Train, Race. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2011

THE STRUGGLE OF CCI - Miami Florida: 2010 REFLEXIONS AND THANKS LETTER
DECEMBER 23, 2010: Miami FL. USA: This have been a year of great learning and understanding on the struggle for the formation of an IC3 in Miami FL. We did two big criterium racing events, both events big surprises for many that were not expecting from an almost unknown promoter and a new IC3, for Miami and South Florida, to come up with such races. The experience was a sweet and sour kind of combination because we got to meet the good, the bad and the ugly during the process too. We got great help from our MDC Police, and people who work for the MDC and the Medley Fire Rescue and city of Miami, Medley and Doral. We got help from some volunteers too that help us make possible our events.
Thanks: Eddie, Lucy, Danny, David, Leland, Henry, Alex, the Flaco with his big orange motorcycle, the Hombre with his open blue Jeep, Frank, Antonio, Joyce, Joel, Isabel, Rene, Edwin, Nelsito and many others that help us too.
Also, the people of Bike Tech, Bike to Go, Bike Masters, Mack Cycle, Velos Cyclery, Stradalli, GM Bikes and many others that help us in one way or another but that I cannot remember at this time. THANKS to all.
Also, thanks to the cycling teams that participated in our two races; Aguacate’s, Sun Cycling, Big Wheel, Z-Bikes, Z- Motion, Miami Masters, GS Palm Beach, Team Paisa, 2 is Vista Velo, Team Velocity, Rossetti, Bike America, Team Cocos, Ghost Rider, Team Performance, EBT Cycling, Velos Cyclery, and many more that I can’t remember their names please, forgive me for not remembering you all.
Finally, thanks to all our cycling friends that attend in one way or another to our IC3 events and a very special thanks to the USAC organization and all his people, Stuart, Beth, Shawn and the USAC secretaries that took my many calls and always gave me a hand. I thank also IC3 and all it’s members with Paul Haller our president, Cody Newcome, Main IC3 Assistant, Secretary and so many other things she does for all of us IC3 members, Kevin B. Hill Director of the North Texas Spoke, Rich Pierce Director of the Missouri Spoke, Mike Leaman, Director of the Washington Spoke, Andy Albershardt Director of the North and South Carolinas Spoke. I don’t know how to mention my appreciation for all these years of patience and of ups and downs that you been having with me and that help me to grow as Christian and as a person. My deepest appreciation to you all in IC3.
The question for us is what is next for IC3 of Miami, Florida in 2011. I have been revolving with that question in my spinning mind and I realize that I has forgotten other very important aspects of what Christian cycling is all about and IC3. I personally ask forgiveness to all our IC3 members worldwide because, I did concentrate all my efforts on given those two criterium races. But, now I also believe I should have concentrated in other more important aspects of what IC3 is all about and I and asking for the opportunity of redeem myself to all my IC3 brothers and sisters world wide.
I did well promoting making everybody to notice IC3 of Miami locally and internationally but, at a very high cost on my personal finances with MITCO plus the contributions of products, services, promotional materials and gift certificates from some of our reliable and loyal sponsors and friends like: Hammer, Voler, Vcrc Bike, Rudy Project, Sunshine Lithography, Flex Body Fitness and Miami Road Cyclist.
In our next news letter we will let you all know of more specific plans and possible programs, races and events. We are working on several things but not until we are sure we will let you know what we came out with.
MERRY CHRISTMAS – HAPPY HOLIDAYS – PEACE ON EARTH – HAPPY 2011
