LABOR Shatters Record!
Labor Power's 12k Dream Team, Louie Rican,  the Vampire, J. Puffy Bausch and RGW, shattered the course
record at the California State Team Time Trial  Championships on Sept. 7, 2002 at Fiesta Island,  San Diego, taking the Gold
in 49.49, despite a flat-tire that sent RGW to the sidelines with 5 miles to go.
