Saturday, May 22, 2010 - Race ReportsToday's Tour of California time trial, near the Staples Center, featured a stacked field. Yeah, there was the GC race, but the start list was also littered with Olympic, World and National Champions.
It's been a long tour, and yesterday was no joke. Thus, I had low expectations for today, I just wanted to enjoy it. That was the idea, but I ended up suffering anyway. At a race of this size they have a motorbike ahead of you with your last name on the front. It helps the fans, but it also helps pick out the real ones.
I heard "go mack" a bunch of times, but the number of times I heard, "go Paul," was overwhelming. Thanks for that, I tried my best to put on a show.
Tomorrow is the last day. One more to lay it all out on the line and race my bike.
Bissell's Mustache Contest
The contest to raise awareness for the Ronald McDonald House is happening right now. While my teammates have put up valiant efforts, they need to be told the truth. So, make sure the best 'stache wins, ie. mine, by "liking" this photo on Facebook.
