TEAM FRANZIA REPORT OCT 25 2009

I attended the awards ceremony, then drove back to Mcdo Macapagal bring Pinpin Uy to his driver there.

Pinpin Uy (facing camera) was one of the most talked about rookie rider in Matabungkay this year.Congratulations Pin.




thats the signature thumbs up from raymond see Grin




ok enough foto shoots..start struggling este working up the mountains again... laugh






6pm I am in makati condo. im tired and hungry..but have to go to Church first....as I am very thankful..i rode another 4 stage event accident free....come on that was a scary race with 170 riders released as one bunch in stage 1 and stage 2. Raul Cuevas asking me where he can improve the race..I will tell him "next time .. please divide 180 riders into 2 groups of 90 riders each. For safety reasons"

massage lady came at 830pm i had my massage..I am good as new for work...tomorrow.

our team Franzia finished in 10th place at end of 4 stages...... from 26 super duper teams..means we did VERY VERY WELL!

the boss and team owner sir Lucio treated the riders for nice italian dinner last night at Buon Giorno in tagaytay and Alex Billan lent us his Recreational Coaster van for use from Matabungkay to Tagaytay..wow. .we travelled first class.

we had nice story telling at the italian restaurant. Alex also very happy the team time trial group did very well and finished 11th.. placed higher than 15 rival teams..so we are not cellar dwellers..unbelievable but true.

the boss of course very very happy.

i have to sort out photos. for manila peeps just ask my teammate Julio what happened when you see him in MOA Mall of Asia this thursday. Julio becomes the revelation in Matabungkay he is least prepared for the 4 days race..coach Querimit said its no joke to race this year in matabungkay. its a killer race...and so we are very very proud and happy that JULIO VIRAY finished FOUR STAGES..and inspite of what seems like unbearably painful left leg..BEAT 1 GUY at the ITT pa! BRAVO JULIO.

I have to thank all the participants. Alex Billan was most valuable asset, Pinpin Uy is a rising superstar..yet humble and down to earth, ramon antonio silent professor fighting his heart out and so did Philip Go, Dennis Datu, Liston Yao, Alan, George, Edwyn...shane chin becomes our official team coordinator. ..Philip Opiasa became franzia marketing and Photographer. .and so we had SO MUCH FUN.

How i wish team captain tiboy reyes was with us..and so I miss the team Franzia Bicol boys too.

i will write a short report. with the fotos. when you have time Dennis ill wait for your good report also.

again thanks so much to my TEAM FRANZIA..you made all of us VERY PROUD to be a rider in this team.

Raymond See
