Tuckerman… Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner

It seems like it was just yesterday that cross clinics were starting… now there is only one race left in the Cross Crusade Series with five more weekends before the season is over… WOW! Time flies when you’re having fun. And, if you’re Aaron Tuckerman, you’ve been having a lot of fun. Aaron Rides for Corsa Concepts/Veloforma and he’s been having a break out cross season. So far Aaron has won 5 Cross Crusades and he’s been in the top 3 in every race except for one. He also wrapped up the overall for the Cross Crusade series with the win at Barton Park! For me, being his bike sponsor is pretty RAD. Who could ask for more… I couldn’t! I understand he’s been racing sick since October 9th, but has managed to muster up the energy to race every weekend. Last week hit him hard. He just rested and didn’t get out on the bike much, and come race day he let it RIP! That says a lot about Aaron and his competitive spirit. The guy is tough as nails. The season’s not over yet, but I have to say Thank You, Aaron! Well played, mate!
