Christian VandeVelde Fan Club Coming Soon!

SWEET! So- I contacted Slipstream Sports and asked in VdV had a fan club. If not, I wanted permission to start a web-based fan club site. 

Here is the response I got:

"Hello Maggie,

Thanks for writing with your interest in Team Garmin-Chipotle H3O and specifically Christian Vande Velde. I forwarded your request on to him and he wrote back to say you should just go for it. He doesn't have a fan club site and thinks this would be cool. Once it is up and running, just send along the link so I can forward it to him.

So- do I have any takers to sign up once I get this thing off the ground? I'll start working with iWeb soon. Damn- why do I have to go back to work next week?

Count me in Maggie! :] That's pretty awesome. They seem like such a cool team, so accessible!

I'm totally in!

Karen said...

omg that's so awesome for you!
Sorry i haven't left any comments lately but I've been very busy!
But still love your blog ;-)

OK- cool so we'll have at least 3 people in the fan club. Christian deserves more, but it's a start.

I'm going to keep the fan club site all nice- no meanness. The Cadel bashing will continue here though.

I kinda figured after his lackluster Olympic performance he would use the knee as an excuse to wimp out on the Vuelta and I'm betting World Championships too. Poor Cadel.

Helen, I like your scenario for Cuddles breakdown- throwing his bike at the poor Spaniards... hee hee hee. Oh well, next year's Tour's HCs could be fun to watch if he can just stew until then.

I built the site today using iWeb. But I am having a prob with FTP. Damn Apple wants me to use some flippin weird domain. Hopefully it will be up within the next 24 hours.

Hi Karen,
So you'll be fan #4 I hope? Cool!

I kind of like Christian VDV and he has belgian origins so you can count me in ;-)

Fabulous, anonymous! He deserves a fan club IMHO.
