TDG Ride Report from inside the peleton

.... Doug O's a local pro riding for Team Healthnet. Let's give his blog and motionbased linky a little traffic. It's fun to follow the race this way; 'specially the maps and stats. Today he was in the break. Frickin' cool stuff.

Ever wonder where our HR's compare to a pro's? Well, here ya go. Go Doug O!!

Thanks, pretty entertaining read.

while I was up front trying to hang onto the break, there was apparently quite a show back in the field that I missed out on. Some squabbling between Popovych of Discovery and Hunter of Phonak led to a full-on fist fight on the side of the road. I think those two might have discovered the missing ingredient to cycling's ultimate commercial success in the US. Riding with mouth gaurds may prove difficult, though.

Proof that US cycling doesn't know how to promote itself!

that's cool, i stood beside his "lady friend" atop the bald. She's easy on the eyes. Lucky SOB!

I love pro cyclist blogs. Sometimes the ones on cyclingnews are pretty good.
