De Rosa team issue:

Thanks Gewilli for the heads up about this: I got myself outsprinted by his old man down in LA a couple weekends ago, nice movie Chance. Got my De Rosa Rock Racing team replica bike in today, photos to come. I’m just such a big fan, I had to get one. I think instead of [...]

Damn straight. It used all was better. I’m done racing in this land called Europe. It is past time. France is dirtier than Belgium and maybe even Amsterdam yet, not as dirty as LA. Tears were shed at the Lieven world cup today. Saying goodbye to friends until next winter. The results are screwy, I [...]
