We are the Sho-air / Rock 'n Road Junior Development Team from Orange County, California. We currently have 36 junior members ranging in age from 10 to 20. In January, Mr. Bahati graciously accepted our invitation to attend our two-day junior road camp out in Santa Maria. His presence there was an inspiration to the 21 juniors on our team who participated. Mr. Bahati assisted with drills, coached one of our time trial teams on the state road race course, and participated in our team ride to Solvang. To have a top pro rider like Mr. Bahati with us was truly amazing. Our juniors thoroughly enjoyed the camp and Mr. Bahati's instruction, coaching and guidance. He even took the time to rotate among all of the juniors to chat, one-on-one, with each of them during our team ride to Solvang. All got the chance to ask questions about what it's like to be a pro rider.

Thanks in part to Mr. Bahati's influence at our great camp, our team raced strong in 2011. We finished the season having won first place in the SCNCA (USA Cycling's regional association). We're the best junior team out of over 50 local teams!

We GREATLY appreciate Mr. Bahati's assistance... and all the juniors are all hopeful he can help us again in 2012.
