    Stuart O'Grady sizes up a gap in the crowd and contemplates a sprint to the team bus. O'Grady doesn't seek out adulation like, say, a tyler hamilton, but when cornered he's a pretty friendly guy..........

    Levi's wife Odessa and one of their pooches. we stayed at motel 6 because it's dog friendly and we had our dog with us. that evening we saw odessa handing her dogs to someone in the backseat of her car in the motel 6 parking lot. she was getting the dogs from another lady who i guessed may have been dog sitting for them at motel 6.

    was that levi in the back seat of the forerunner? i figured if it was he didn't want to be bothered............

    when we saw him last year on sierra road he was antler man. this year i guess he's longhorn man too and a bit more controversial because of the more lethal rack he's sporting.

    through the cheers, jeers and criticism he just stood straddled over his bike impassive, hoping to catch a glimpse of his hero du jour, Lance Armstrong.

    longhorn man is nicest guy in the world and that's probably a good thing for at least one finger-wagging pencil neck that went by.........

    if you are a pro racer on your bike never, ever look at a fan with a camera and smile....well, they're not all like that, and it was good to see this young man smile because the last time i saw him he was DFL on the sierra road climb and covered in road grit kicked up by the wheels he could no longer hold onto...



    sierra road.........
