OK, now we go to the other side of the spectrum and talk about the one and only "HOLLYWOOD"! That's right...Dholla destroys all at SF Giro. Riding the wave of a National Crit Championship just a couple weeks back, Dholla shows a very strong field in a clean set of wheels as he unleashed a very impressive sprint to win....yet again. I was most impressed by his riding tactics. He was perfectly positioned going into the last few laps and right behind the Cal Giant lead out train on the last lap....I knew the race was over at that point. Oh ya, did I say that Dholla is sub 20 on the age thing. If he keeps racing, he will probably go down as one of the greatest American sprinters in history...he is that talented.
