Sean Kelly!

So anyone else go the Seattle bike expo? Oh well...Davis Phinney & Sean Kelly were there to talk about their racing experiences and to give tips to aspiring racers. Joe Friel also showed up bet left early to catch a plane. I bought a cycling hat and hurried over and got Kelly's autograph (Yes!!!!). He's a really funny guy in person and he told the story of his first race where he was so scared of the other riders that he rode as fast as he could to get away and ended up winning. He also told the story of his famous descent to win the Milan San Remo. Sweet!
