The NJ based BCV( BCV is a helluva lot easier to type out) team was in SC this weekend for the come see me crit and Patriot's trail RR. A few of the Jittery Joe's guys were there, too, so a show down between the two DIII teams, both of whom have been discussed on this NG, was in the works. In the crit, a 36 jmile race in the rain, JJ's sprinter, Jeff Hopkins, who has an NRC win under his belt already this year, blew everyone away in the last lap. Hard to call it a sprint, he had a huge gap at the line, coasted across. Might have been a BCV rider in the top 5, couldn't tell. In the 110 mile RR, both teams missed the early, and ultimately successful, break and either couldn't or wouldn't make any real efforts at bringing it back. Hopkins won the field sprint. The friendly Assie is a small, sort of nondescript rider, with an amazing jump. Should score a real Pro contract in the near future. Another note on BCV: Kent Bostick showed up this morning in one of their jerseys, after racing yesterday in his USPS master'steam garb, as did Thad Dullin, the young NC rider who has been the dominanat amateur in the SE through the spring. Weird thing was, Thad told me that he was riding with Kent, but not for the Pro sqad from NJ. Kent has taken the promising Dullin under his wing, it appears. Greg Miller .
