After Bobridge's performance in the Australian Road titles in Jan, I was tempted to take the day off work and drive the 5 minutes from my home to the event. No ... go to work I told myself. Dumb!

Haha!

Kinda like when the XGames was down the street from my office one year in SF. I got no work done that week.

Some friends of mine drove a few hours to the US Pro Road Race Championship and watched Ben King upset the US cycling world by winning. I wish I had gone with them. They said it was really exciting to watch.
