So it sure does feel great to be back out on the bike. Is anyone else out there keeping up with the Tour of California? Sure the racing is OK, but there are some funny stories-
"Police in Sacramento are investigating the theft of four Team Astana bikes, including Lance Armstrong's time trial bike, from behind a team hotel overnight.
Sacramento Police Department spokesman Konrad Von Schoech told the Sacramento Bee newspaper the bikes were stolen from an unmarked truck that was parked in an alley behind a hotel overnight."
Now I'm going to pause here for a moment...Who leaves 4 TT bikes including a one of a kind custom job (we're probably looking at $100K total) in a van in an alley? I wouldn't leave my Raleigh Rush Hour in my car...a perfect case of more money then sense. I can't wait to hear the Bike Snob's Take on the ultimate in bike thefts. Bring that shit inside!
And then there's the bitching from Leipheimer about not having race radios becasue of the weather which allowed Rock Racing to win a stage. Are pro riders really just monkeys? Do they really get told exactly what to do and have no thoughts of there own? Man...I guess i was giving them more credit then they deserve...how can you not know how to race without someone screaming in your ear? Is lower brain function a side effect of EPO maybe?
