Alex Fariletti, Dan Sullivan and David Espinoza raced this past weekend at Hellyer’s San Jose, CA Velodrome.  Affinity placed in the top ten despite stumbling on some questionable calls in the Keirin on Day 1… thats how it goes sometimes in bike racing. Day 2 was much different for the Affinity team, check out the pics.

US Sprint champ Jimmy Watkins, a firefighter and a member of the US National track team faced Affinity’s newest talent, David Espinoza in the sprints. Dave blazed a trail that Watkins couldn’t put out (hahahhahaha)! But wait, there’s more fires that Watkins couldn’t extinguish…

Dave and Dan knew that it would take some planning and team work. The second fire came by way of Dan “The Thug” Sullivan working for his teammate and passing the victory to Dave so he could face Watkins in the sprint final.

In the end Dan and Dave’s work paid off, and It was Affinity’s own Dave Espinoza beating Jimmy Watkins, and taking home $500.00 winning the Sprint final!
