Vuelta Ciclista a la Regiona de Murcia

Lance at the Tour Down Under

If you can even pronounce the title of this posting - which happens to also be the race where Team Radio Shack and the re-emerging Lance Armstrong are back to racing today - then you are doing better than I am. Lance has been training since the Tour of Qatar and has resurfaced in southern Spain. You can check out the preview to the race here.

From Cycling Weekly - Hincapie in Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2010
Yeah, try and say that 3 times fast.

George Hincapie is currently in my home town of Greenville SC training amidst the flurries of snow. If I know SC - and I do, having lived there for 20 some years - he'll have the roads to himself, because all schools and businesses shut down for any chance of snow. He just finished the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and the Kuurne-Brussel -Kuurne in Belgium preparing for the spring classics. Interestingly he was out here in California just a few weeks ago training around Agoura Hills. I would love to meet him some day.

Where's Levi? Not sure how I missed this before but Levi Leipheimer, of Santa Rosa, CA is riding with Lance again this year for Radio Shack. Not sure that he is in Spain right now, but I will be finding out.

Where am I riding right now? Nowhere. Work has picked up for me - which is good on its own - we just need my proposals to turn into signed contracts. Thus, even trying to fit rides into the cracks has been difficult. I managed a commute to work once last week, and even had company for once as a friend of a friend wanted to ride along in the dark on the way to work, and Vince put in a few miles on my way home the night before. No commute this week though. I haven't seemed to find a way to end up at the office in the afternoon, where I can be back in the office a little late the next day, at any point this week. I might have an hour or 2 to ride tomorrow before dark, so I will see if I can fit a week's worth of training into it. Sounds painful.
