Hincapie Party Photos part deux

In varies states of sobriety I took these photos with a small digital camera . No animals were harmed… These ladies are the marshalls at most of the big bike races in the U.S. They hate me. Self-portrait with Levi and Dave Tim says, “Hi” to Levi Me and Levi-BFF Lucas doing the “robot” or […]

Riding with Nathan O’Neill

Immediately after the USA Cycling professional road race in Greenville I loaded up my rental car for a solo trip to Dahlonega, Georgia. The purpose? I was going to ride with Nathan O’Neill of Health Net and check out his favorite rides. Sure I was tired from five extremely busy days in Greenville, but hey, […]

Road Race in Greenville

Greenville, South Carolina lived up to any expectations that USA Cycling must have had. The tough course separated the wheat from the chaff and a worthy champion took the title. Estimated reports had 50,000 people lining the course, all cheering for their resident, George Hincapie. At the start/finish line the crowds lined both sides of […]

Hincapie Party

ROAD Magazine as been to its share of after-parties. Usually, they are a rather dry affair with riders checking their watches and thinking about returning to their hotel rooms.

The people that you meet in the neighborhood

Saturday is a bit of a “for rest day” before Sunday’s main event so we decided to walk around downtown Greenville. The Palmetto Peloton ride had just ended and the street was filled with recreational cyclists. Among those cyclists was Saul Raisin. We briefly chatted to him. He’d just got done doing two laps of […]

Power of the beard

We saw David Z a couple of hours before the time trial and he was his usual non sequitur self, throwing out quotes from where I don’t know. When I asked where that quote he just dramatically told us was from, his reply, “Am I the only one who knows pop-culture?” Sometimes Dave you are. […]

Day one at USPRO

Tim and I are in Greenville, South Carolina for the USPRO time trial and road race. For anyone who hasn’t visited Greenville, it really is a hidden gem and I can see why George Hincapie as well as Craig Lewis call this city home. Greenville is located at the base of some mountainous roads that […]

On the road again

I thought blogging on the road would be easy. Instead it was a chore. When we were at the Tour of Utah, finding a cafe with internet was a challenge. Then when I could bogart wi-fi I had to spend the time on it working instead of blogging. C’est la vie. Overall the Tour of […]

I have a dream…

The idea to do a special commemorative Tour of California issue/book came to us at lunch. I think it was Mexican food. First, we thought we’d do 20 pages on the stage race. But then we decided to do a whole issue to the Tour. Why not? It was in our backyard, major European, as […]
