TOLaw met up for the Peak2Peak Mountain Bike Classic and heads were, by all accounts, turned.
After nearly two months divided on different racing schedules across the state, Thompson O’Neil Law with bring its full compliment of riders to Thompsonville, Michigan, for the Peak2Peak Mountain Bike Classic.
Despite denying any interest in signing Mark Cavendish after the demise of HTC, TOLaw top man Dan O’Neil finally admitted that he had ‘some contact’ with the Manx Missile during the later stages of the 2011 Tour de France. Continue reading

Top man Dan O’Neil was furious after various media outlets made claims that TOLaw was using systematic ‘mechanical doping’ for its riders. “That is a blatant and outrageous lie,” Dan said to cameras early this afternoon after eating a grilled cheese sandwich. “There is no evidence of any wrongdoing by our team. Besides, we can’t even change a flat tire, let alone install an electric engine.”
In the cold, frigid air that stands before the sun rises, TOLaw’s Cody Sovis, Wes Sovis and Joe Sovis strode forth to pick-up their packets. It was time to test their mettle against one of the toughest courses in Michigan, a 9.5 mile loop with almost 1,100 feet of climbing per lap. The Gents, dressed in black and bundled against the early October chill, went out to test their competitors and themselves.
At a pre-race press conference, the Sovis family vowed to leave it all on the trail, swearing that fans and competitors alike would remember the TOLaw team was there to do battle. Arriving early, signing up and getting their bikes in order set up TOLaw for a day of serious bike racing. And what a day it proved to be….
TOLaw’s Classics riders Cody, Wes and Joe Sovis are prepping for what has been called the Spiral of Doom, the Circle of Certain Consternation, and the Whirling Dervish in the past few days. (Admittedly, all of these references came in the preceding sentence) The Pando Fall Classic is a staple of Michigan mountain biking, an annual test of late-season strength, climbing and guts.
The subversive and elusive network known as Anonymous has struck again, this time targeting the details of the TOLaw rider’s contracts, specifically their incentives and conditions. The same group, famous for leaking secrets as shocking and disturbing as Iraq war lies, Guantanamo Bay regulations and the dealings of the world’s top diplomats have revealed what we all wanted to know: What Wes Sovis demands before the races. The answer: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
