Disco's new rider a homeboy

I was reading the paceline today and what did I discover...my high school class mate and friend of the family has a son on Disco...Whoa! I made a phone call back home to Dixon IL to confirmed my suspicion and my mom confirmed that yeah his family is still in town and she sees them periodically but she didn't know John rode a bicycle but new he was an athlete. I think it is time to travel home and rekindle an old friendship.

(Austin, TX) – The Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team announced the signing of three riders to round out the team’s 2007 roster with the addition of Alberto Contador, Steve Cummings and John Devine. Each rider brings a distinctive background and skill set to an already diverse group of world-class cyclists.

HE is a real talent. I have been trading emails with him through the tour of Georgia and in his last couple of races. We are all cheering for him! Can't wait till he is taking pulls at Disco!
