    I get to brag for once.

    My neice just became the Canadian Individual Time Trial Champion for under 19 women. My whole family is super proud, expecially since she's only been riding a few years! She's a really sweet, smart kid, and she has really supportive parents, so she's bound to go far.

    Fortunately for her, she has no blood relation to me! (otherwise she'd never be fast).

    Here she is, in the middle:

    Nice ! Most of my bragging is also about friends & relatives.

    I've invited her down to Maryland a few times in the past to come riding with my wife and me, but I somehow have a feeling we wouldn't be able to keep up, haha!

    This may seem odd, but have always like the image you have in your signature and have been interested in trying to find a print of it. Do you have any tips on where I might find it?

    I *think* it's a Graham Watson photo, but I'm not sure, and I can't seem to find it in his galleries. I do remember cropping it out of a larger print though.

    Anyway, here's a race report: http://www.canadiancyclist.com/dailynews.php?id=24441 She pulled out the TT by almost a minute!

    And a pic:
