HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! How many reporters, fans, photographers will he brutally attack in this year's Tour de France. I finally figured it out. He attacks these defenseless folks because he doesn't know how TO ATTACK WHEN RIDING HIS BIKE!

Gotta Love the Schleckmeister!
Man I wish Lance and Levi would stop blabbing whenever I open my blog. Might have to delete that entry.

Blood Sweat + Gears

This premiers on the Sundance Channel on June 29th, 2009. Check your local listings. I hear they will be replaying it several times in July. I always go for the underdog! As VDV says in the trailer. Garmin Slipstream is the Little Engine that Could!

VDV Rocks!



So I come home today and there is a package from VDV!!!!  This is the Jersey he was wearing when he crashed out 10K from the finish of the 3d stage of the 2009 Giro. OMG! I can't decide if I am happy or not cause I soooo wish he hadn't been injured. But this is totally going to be framed! 
Inside is a signed poster for my kids AND the signed, battle scarred jersey from the '09 Giro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an awesome dude! He is totally my adopted nephew!
 Go VDV!!!!

Philadelphia International Championships 2009


Leaky Gas Daniel Oss was in a three man break for most of the second half of the race. It was weird on the 2nd lap of Lemon Hill he just sat up and said f-it. 


Columbia Highroad dominated both the women's and men's fields. Kind of surprised Boasan Hagen didn't win; he was at the front of the second group of about 20 in the final 18 or so Ks.


Can you believe I walked out of the Star Trek exhibit at the Franklin Institute and there were the Leaky Gas boys. Of course I ran over for a photo op. They told me I had to cover the Garmin shirt though. LOL! They were super nice (and Quinziato is quite handsome in person.) It was funny- they were letting this little Black kid ride one of their bikes. Pretty nice dudes. The dude on the right just kind of popped into the pic, and rather than crop him out I decided he needed to stay.


Dan Holloway from the US Development Team (sponsored by Garmin Slipstream) dominated the first 5 laps. At one point he was 11 minutes ahead of the peloton. I saw him at the end on Lemon Hill giving people high fives, thought for sure he would finish and get serious KOM points and the 3,500 Benjamins associated with it, but when I checked the results it said he DNF. WTF?

Now as usual I bring my usual silly youtube montage of the race highlights from this fangirl's perspective. A totally awesome weekend. If anyone wants to come over, up, or down for it next year do it! Check out my flickr account if you want to see more pics. Search mtarbox20
