Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

Foot on the gas... slowly...

North Bend, WA

Great news! It hasn’t rained since I returned… it’s only snowed. I’m not sure what to think. You put March 01 and Washington together and 28 times out of 29 you get rain. But that’s fine; my preparation for the Tour of Georgia is officially in progress as of tomorrow. I seem to be recovered from my latest illness, so I’m gonna go ahead and give the trainer a go for an hour tomorrow- mainly just to see how I feel and whether or not to really begin with the push-ups and jumping-jacks.
After our performance at the tour of California I’m absolutely enthralled with the thought of oilin’ up the v12 for a bit of training… Just gotta take it slow as to not over heat it.

Dealing a fatal blow to the Belgian on the KOM...
I don't know... is that me?
