These past two hours were crazy! In that short amount of time I interviewed Fred Rodriguez, Kristin Armstrong, David Zabriskie, and Christian VandeVelde. I was able to talk to Fred first and then Kristin was next. She was a great interview and had plenty to say. When I told her that David Z was coming […]
The first day in Vegas was reconnecting with people we hadn’t seen since last year. As much of my communication is done via email, it is nice to put a name with a face. I call up Tony Cruz and see what he’s up to for tonight. I know Tony from interviews and we live […]
Just saw a guy riding his mountain bike north on the 15 freeway. It had racks and attached to his handlebar was a small Korean flag. Was he going to Vegas as well?
The hardest one hour in any sport I was invited to race as well as attend the Star Crossed cyclocross race in Seattle just a few weeks ago. This went a radical change in my training. I had planned on bit of a rest, then doing steady base miles. Nope that wasn’t going to be […]
Floyd and David kicking back at the Sinclair Party ’05. The irony of Floyd’s shirt does not escape me. This is a test of my mobile blogging. I’ll be trying to blog on the fly at Interbike. I won’t be blogging about the newest stuff because that will be covered by everyone else. I’ll be […]

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 […]
As promised, photos from Senior ROAD photographer Al Crawford of the Hincapie Party.
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, […]
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 […]
