I guess you can say it's been a long time in the making. This is the start of something new. A different take on the Spoke & Word series with hopefully many more to come. This inaugural edition features Jesse Shotland. A local Cat 4 track racer who simply loves life at the track. Jesse has easily become one of my favorite people in the cycling community. He is humble as he is talented. Give him a hello if you ever see him racing at Kissena, Prospect Park, or snapping some beautiful landscape pictures.
