I’m off to Iowa City in a few hours. The weather looks pretty iffy, but I’m alittle iffy, so we’ll match. Bill, Brian and I are all going, along with Catherine and Nick Coil, who now rides for the Mercy Cycling Team. Plus Trudi and Bromont of course. Pretty full van.
We’re driving to Davenport, IA tonight and staying with Jeff Bradley. Jeff started racing again, semi-full time, a couple years ago. Well, really not that much, but he doesn’t do races in the spring and fall. Pro 1-2 races instead of masters. I’ve known Jeff since I was 17. He was the best junior in the country until Greg LeMond came around. And, he could beat Greg every once in a while because he was a little faster and smarter than Greg.
I’m deciding about racing Joe Martin after this weekend. I’ve done so little racing and trained so pitifully, that I can’t make a good decision at this point.
Trudi brought me a bunch of stuff back from Europe. Pictures below.
