Not much to write home about this week. I've just had a bit of down time after two weeks of stage racing. Now it's back to work this week as I prepare for Philly, Airforce/Clarendon, and Nature Valley. So another hard block of racing, but first a hard block of training.
Included in that will be the Tour de Frankenmuth and a new event the Grand Fondo the following day. If you're in the area you should not only do the race, but also the ride. It's going to be a long, wide open, wind swept 130 miles. Also going to be at the event will be my bosses in team owner Chad Thompson and director Frankie Andreu.
So I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I haven't really been raking in the results lately. Hopefully things will change over the next few weeks. I would also love to help set up one of teammates to get the big win that seems so close, but is taking longer to get then I thought it would. We have a strong team and a couple of strong finishers we just need to position them a bit better so they can land consistently on the podium. We have a lot of chances over the next month and a half, and then the rest of the season.
How bout the Giro this year? Exciting, grueling, wet, and anything could happen. I can't really say much other then that because I'm not there, and can't even imagine what it must be like in that peloton. Those are some tough dudes. I've enjoyed my mornings watching it.
