My own mini Tour de France


The whole reason I wanted to get into racing was to try the ultimate cycling event - the stage race. Well, if all goes as planned, on April 28-29 I will have my chance. Granted, it's only 3 stages instead of 21, and it's in bucolic Madera, California instead of France. But, it will have to do for now. I can't wait!

Hey, its Lance Chatterbox in the yellow jersey, though I think there should be a yellow stripe somewhere on the shorts, too ;-) How about details on what the stages entail? Good luck!!!!

You look fabulous in pink and yellow. Best of luck in your race.

gotta back off on the resistance training -- your arms look a bit manly!

vg - Yeah, I'm ripped! Must have been that 'maximum power' weight training regimen you gave me for Feb. :)

chris - thanks!

crick - Stage 1 on Saturday morning is a crit, supposedly flat. Stage 2 is a 10 mile, flat ITT on Saturday afternoon. Stage 3 is a flat road race on Sunday. They say there is a small section of rollers (hopefully no more than San Ardo). It is 3 laps of a 17 mile loop.
