Sorry I've been slacking... Work has picked up this week and I am keeping up with emails and reading good stuff but haven't been back over here to post. Feel free to email me anytime. :-) Hopefully if I get through this week with the hours, I'll get the much wanted mornings open to watch Le Tour! With C and Will there I am so looking forward to it!
News today was the announcement of the US Olympic Cycling Team. The one I saw first was actually at PdC and Jimbo linked us to VeloNews: USA Cycling names Olympic squad. The men's Road Race include Levi, George, C, McCartney, and DZ. I am super stoked for Meatball probably most of all! So excited and happy for him. I really wanted Mike and Brad there riding together so I feel sad that Brad's not going. Lyne over at Podium In Sight has a recent interview with Brad that is a great quick read. And Brad... you may be getting older but you are far from OLD! Hang in there sweetie and continue kicking booty!
