LABOR POWER RACING:  Lung Busters, Leg Breakers


MKA rounding the bend enroute to victory at the Mt. Hood Cycling Classic (June 4-8, 2009, Mt. Hood, Oregon).  MKA won the 45 plus division in the grueling 4 day stage race and placed second in the 35 plus category. "Winning the Mt. Hood stage was the pinnacle of my career," said MKA, referring to the 92 mile stage that started and finished 10,000 feet of climbing later at the Mt. Hood Meadows resort parking lot. "The last few miles, off the front, I was tapping into the cosmic forces to help me up that mountain. Turns out faith has a pragmatic application."

Labor Rules Again!
Los Angeles, California - August 7, 2005

Labor Works the Waterfront

Whenever the work gets dirty, you can count on Labor to lend a hand. After racing in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Labor spotted a few laborers having trouble with rodent control. Labor swooped in. Within minutes, the rodents were eliminated, the workers rejoiced, and Labor's cleaning crew moved on to the next distress call.  Kenosha, WI, on Lake Michigan, July 2004.

Labor Manhandles Madman

MKA succeeds in holding down firebrand funny man and longtime Labor supporter Robin Williams for all of 2 seconds at the San Francisco Grand Prix. That morning Robin easily won the celebrity race after threatening to take a crowbar to anyone foolish enough to challenge him in the sprint.

The team consists of 10 hard working, savvy and a little crazy Masters racers and competes in major pro-am races on the West Coast, in Texas and in the Midwest. The name of the team is  'Labor Power'  < click here to view 1997 LABOR POWER JERSEY >.  Since 1995, Team Labor power has piled up impressive victories in Oregon, Texas, California, Canada, Nevada, Utah and Alabama and has performed well at the national championship track and road events. More important than winning races is the message Team Labor has been sending to the public.

Team Labor is sponsored by every working man and women who has been robbed of their health by asbestos and other toxic chemicals. We want to remind the public how precious good health is, and how easily it can be taken away by reckless and indifferent companies who peddle poisonous products. We know that thousands of working Americans have paid a heavy price for making the U.S. the greatest Nation on Earth. We tell the public that the temporary pain we experience racing bicycles is nothing like the pain a mesothelioma or cancer patient faces every hour of everyday. As bike racers, we choose to suffer swollen legs and burning lungs when climbing mountains or sprinting for the win. We know that a terminal asbestos patient does not have this choice -- his pain and anguish was forced upon him and his family. We do not take our health for granted!
