...are you cool with Basso on Disco this season?
He sure looks good in that new kit at training camp....and gives me someone to root for in the new season.

I'm with ya on that one. I just hope he stays there....I'm....lets say a little jumpy about it all after what happened the day before Le Tour last year!

I wanted to be in Santa Barbara for that stage....could have stayed near there with a relative. But then her daughter had to go and get engaged and now I have to go there for the wedding at the end of June and can't go now too.

Some day I'll see a pro race in the states....

I figured that.....cool.
My buddy and I are planning on doing it.
He's done it before and says it's wicked.
I might be struggling, but it'll be a good training.

You also find some 3's and 4's in there...the pack sometimes splits up into different
groups. But yeah a lot of the 1's and 2's will use it as a race if thye aren't racing
that weekend

Yeah, but that's a week in cyclist time.

For example, Wisconsin's Superweek is three weeks long.

And when a racer tries to convince you that they haven't ridden in weeks, they actually mean four days.
