    A Clyde Rides for Garmin/Chipotle Team

    I was on the Felt website looking at their new bikes and discovered that there's a Clydesdale rider on the Chipotle/Garmin pro team. His name is Magnus Backstedt. Had I known that, I would've looked for him in the Tour de France. It's great to know that 160 lb riders aren't the only ones good enough to ride at that level. Also, I read in another article earlier today that this guy dishes out 2000 watts on a decent day!! That's some serious power output.

    That guy has been around for a long time now. I believe he put out a well known book a few years back!

    Backstedt's palmares is extensive, including stage wins in both the Tour and Giro.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Maggie is way cool. My wife and I got to talk to him before a Stage start in the Veutla last year. His biggest win is definately Paris Roubaix in 2004.
