Chatting it up
Wednesday, August 10, 2011 - Race Reports
This is actually my 4th year at the Tour of Utah and you can read all about the last three in the blog archives. Don't stay up too late.

Today's race was 3 laps over the climb we did right from the gun 3 years ago. I will say it was more fun this time, but still hurt a ton. The group split on the last lap. I ended up in a chase group that finished 2:35 down on the 5 big boys.

So I talked to Levi Leipheimer a bit early in the race. If you remember, last year he told everyone he wasn't racing to win. Then he showed us that even when he's not racing, he still wins.

Well, today I asked if he was using the same strategy this year. He said, and I quote, "Yeah, I'm just going to sit in like you." Burn!!! He was joking and we had a laugh, but it still stung pretty deep.

Then I talked to George Hincapie. I told him I hate him because my wife has a crush on him. No, I didn't. I was going to until I saw his dreamy brown eyes and then just stammered out that I'm a big fan.

It's nice to see that even the pros can still have their fan boy moments.

Looks like you're doing well. Good job and keep that position on the GC.
I saw how you crushed Max in the prologue but they still give you s.t. on GC. 0.08 seconds may not seem like much but you guys are so pro. That's a ton of time there. Wait, I just sneezed.
Good luck the next few days to you and Max.
Hello Sajejo.
