I’m Dave Towle and I would like to thank you for joining me for the first edition of Told By Towle.
“When the world’s most talented cyclists are literally tearing each other apart in the gladiator pit that is professional cycling, Manual for Speed is there to capture the Speed, Humanity and Spectacle of California’s Greatest Race.”
Stage 01: “Manual for Speed blasted through Sac Town on a two burrito binger fueled by cup after cup of high octane java! Strategically split into two teams, one group blazed along the back roads in their custom labeled mid-sized rental eventually catching up with the World Class peloton next to a Burger King. The other half stalked the chillers of Capitol Park while waiting to pounce on the thrilling sprint finish. After the race they retired to the sanctuary of the Hilton Garden Inn for a supersonic night of high-energy blogging.”
THE TOP DOGS OF THE DOUBLE TREE
Manual for Speed was between acts and idling at the hotel bar when we were cruised by a septuagenarian in a flowing teal and magenta ren fair meets pajama ensemble. After a few cracks about her overweight husband she invited us to the Keeshond Nationals that were just wrapping up in another wing of the Double Tree. We went but in the end we didn’t hook up.
