With the lack of racing this week I’ve had to make do with news of race announcements, race cancellations, team announcements, doping allegations, very creative graphs and of course new electronic gadgets to lust over. So yeah, it was a full week for me. First off we’d been hearing rumbling earlier this week that the […]
Lucas Euser did not have an easy 2009 racing season. He came off a strong 2008 season and was aiming to ride the Vuelta in 2009.
