Frank detailed the teamwork in today’s tour stage on the Tour de France blog. I get asked that question frequently and how exactly does a team work together? If you didn’t get to watch it, check Frank’s post and the full report from Cyclingnews. That was the best example I’ve ever seen of riders sacrificing themselves, giving up their bikes, water bottles, and giving everything they’ve got for their leaders.
At 1:30 Sunday morning, 9,000 cyclists set out on Chicago’s annual Long After Twilight Ends (LATE) ride, a 25-mile circuit ride that starts and ends at Buckingham Fountain, and takes in northside neighborhoods and the Chicago Lakefront Path.
Here’s the only Flickr photo I could find; anyone seen any others?
John Calnan and Kelli Currie are out riding the STP right now and when they get done are going to post about the event, how they did, and more. Both have been posting on their personal blogs: Off to Portland, Sleep eludes me.
While John and Kelli pedal those miles, I’ll be racing with the boys in the Skagit Flats in a Kermesse style race, which is a fast circuit.
