He is the Champion

I know everyone out there is coveting this beautiful trophy with its plastic gold cup on a marble base. Tyler coveted this beauty last year when he got third place in the Hill Climbers Trophy race for his category. But lo and behold last Saturday he pushed himself into having exercise induced asthma to win this baby!! Honestly, it really wasn't about the trophy, this race brings out the best of the best hill climbers in Utah and that is what Tyler is--a hill climber, and he wanted to win, and he achieved that goal!!

And only a week after LOTOJA when the rest of us are barely able to look at our bikes. I guess robots don't have that problem. I am glad they spared no expense on the trophies.

What a cute little trophy and what a funny little picture. Congratulations! Anyone who likes to climb mountains deserves to be recognized for it.

Tyler wins again! He's always winning something! What a champ!
And I think you're right about the name thing. Somehow, I don't think John is going to pony up with the Lexus though so there will be no "Jean-Luke Pickard" Thomas!

Do you know if it's a boy or a girl yet???
