Yesterday was busy. I first did an awesome ride with Vincent and Sue up Golden Gate. It was in the 90’s in Denver, but cool up in the mountains. Then it was a rush to head over to a 7-11/BMC shindig. Here are some photos from the day. I have to hurry because Trudi is dropping off riders at the airport this morning and I’m meeting her up in the mountains.
You hardly ever get a group of icons like this together in today’s cycling world. This is Bob Roll, Eric Heiden above, then Steve Bauer, Chris Carmichael, Davis Phinney and Jim Ochowicz.
This is Taylor Phinney, TT stage winner, helping George Hincapie, Och and Bob action off George’s skinsuit he raced in yesterday, number and all. The last jersey in George’s career. Ron Kiefel bought it, out bidding Carmichael for 7 large. (Sorry Och for the candid shot.)
This is George handing Ron the skinsuit.
The other side of the stage 7-11 stage. Here are, from left to right, Ron Kiefel, Sue, Sean Petty, Monica Van Haute, Trudi and Mike Neel.
There was a fashion show during the food portion. Mainly modeling Hincapie, Lulu Lemon and the other clothing sponsors of BMC.
