On The Road

This week I'm in Colorado checking out the local scene - ok, ok - it's really my 20yr HS reunion, but the Colorado State Track Championships are ALSO this weekend, so I may get to do some racing as well. I grew up in Colorado and have to say that it's still quite a hot bed for cycling. No, they don't have Hernando, but they do have Garmin-Chipotle, National CX ChampBrandon Dwight, and the fine folks at Velonews to help keep them in the game. Honestly, it's great to be here, so i'll try to get some good dish for everyone over the next few days.

The Real Ricco

Here's your chance to meet the REAL revelation of the Tour De France - Riccardo Ricco Suave....as soon as I heard his name a couple of years ago - touted as the protege of Gilberto Simoni, this song came to mind. I especially like the first few lines and thought this was absolutely the PERFECT anthem...

"him, I never liked him...I never trust him" - if you dont' know the quote you ain't 80's!

I've been riding a lot of track this season, well alot for having ridden NONE for about 15 years. It's been really fun and a great refresher on my tight quarters handling skills and race tactics. Now, I want to share the fun with you! Sterling will host an introduction to track day on Monday August 11th. The clinic will run from 5:30 - 8:00pm and rental bikes are available for $5. The clinic will include segments on how to ride a fixed gear, group skills on track, and a couple of flying time trials - 200m and standing 2 lap. Come out and join the fun - just drop me a line to let me know you're interested.
