Weekend Wrap Ups

I for one can not wait for the Tour to start on Saturday! I watched the VS preview tonight and seeing C on there and his love of being the underdog was awesome. I can't put into written words how totally proud of him and the team I am. I swear someday Will might get really tired of all my good lucks and well wishes but until then I so plan to continue cheering him and the guys on! They're doing what could've been impossible 10 years ago and look at them now... Leading the way and showing the world what clean racing looks like! And they're having some damn good fun doing it. :-) So proud and so happy for them!

I knew we could get you on board! I'm probably too excited but other than the horrific spills that are gonna happen at some point(s) at least I know my guys are not going to disappoint me! And that(!!!) is reason enough for me to be super psyched!
