Neighbor is a pro racer, "El Gato"

I have been seeing a guy ride by the house wearing a Kelly Benefit kit. Not the type of pro kit you would wear if you were a poseur,(and this guy looked really fit) so I assumed he was with the team, even though they are not based here. I accosted him at the stop sign last night and met Jonny Sundt, former Jittery Joe's rider and next year will be with Kenda Tires. He wrote a good bit for Pez about the tour of Cali that I had read some time past, and he is restoring a house down the street, a fellow urban pioneer! He is newly married and she is also a former pro. Welcome to the neighborhood!
