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

Tour of Portugal

4 - 4 - 2007

The tour of portugal is off to a swell start. The prologue was an out and back with a quick loop of a round-about acting as the turn around. Pre-riding the course I did the turn around rather rapidly & decided that I could take it even quicker in the race. I came into it super hot in the race and went down even faster, making a superb debut into another 11 days of racing. Crash number one of 2007...
