From One High Plateau to Another
Monday, May 4, 2009 - General
No real dramas getting from Silver City to Denver today, just a really tight connection in Albuquerque.

Here in Fort Collins I'm staying with Tory and Jennifer, two local cyclists who offered to put me up till the rest of the UC Davis hit squad gets in town. Very cool. They just recently moved into this house and have 2 dogs :/

Over the last 24 hours I've had some time to reflect on Gila and it was a pretty cool, freakin' hard race with some of the best American racers of all time.

But for me personally it was a big learning experience. I did a lot of stupid stuff and learned a lot about racing with/for a team. Hopefully next time I'll be that much smarter and that much better.

Now check out this excerpt from an article in today's New York Times. It's about Lance getting second on Sunday.

"We really focused on trying to get him the win today, not really because he needs it, but more like a statement," Bruyneel said.

The statement turned out to be that he is not yet Lance Armstrong.

Ouch, that has got to hurt.

Why the ":/" to their dogs? I love my JB, who did accompany me to soooo many UCD races to be an unofficial team mascot, back in the day. Dogs rock. Good luck at nats- I expect big things from you guys! GO AGS!

MJ really pissed me off that day, I am glad LA didn't win. They are just too greedy, you know they had the Livestrong team chase you guys half the day. If not for them, LA would not have seen the front group at the end and your break would probably have stayed away. Thats what they get for being too greedy. Otherwise the headline would have read, Lance helps Levi get the win. Now it's Lance didn't win. I wonder if they paid Livestrong or if it was just part of the sponsorship.
