It sure has been wonderful to see the desert get some much needed precipitation.  It has complicated some of last week’s practices but we’ve been able to co-exist with rain quite well.

I’m excited to finally be able to attempt to cross the Canadian border on Monday.   It’s been too long since I’ve visited my family up North.  I’ll be gone until the 30th but hope to hear that team members will start getting back into the swing of practices as everyone returns from vacation and travel.  Coach Ignacio will lead a road ride this Tuesday the 20th at 6:30am.  He will take a measure on what direction everyone wants and needs to go and we’ll post additional practices for this week on Tuesday night.

I’m excited that the Olympics are finally on the brink of starting after a long year delay.  Look for exciting cycling events to take place.  I believe the road races are early on the Olympic program and they should be thrilling.
