Giro D’Italia

Dylan:

Some cool news here from the Giro d’Italia.

Dave Zabriskie is a local transplant, originally from SLC.  My teammate Jeff raced with Dave when Dave was just a wee little tyke coming up through the ranks of the SLC bike racing scene.  A lot of folks recognized that Dave had some very legit cycling skills even back then.

Race Across America

Dylan:

Have you heard the news? Looks like Clif Bar has put a team together for the Corporate Race Across America – which is actually only Race Across Part of America, as we’ll be starting in San Diego and ending up in Flagstaff.  Looks like we’ve got a fine crew of lads willing to attempt this rather nutty feat – check out the cast of characters at http://www.raceacrossamerica.org/files/raam2005/riders/Team%20Clif%20Bar_2005.htm.  Yup, somehow my teammate Eric and I got involved in

Wind, Water, Brie and Me

OK, so I survived. That half Ironman I mentioned a few posts ago, the one I thought might kill me. Yah, well it didn’t kill me after all.

Wildflower 2005 has come and gone and ‘twas another great weekend of stellar people, sun, camping and of course the obligatory swimming, biking, running…sweating, drooling and dizziness. I find anytime those 6 things occur in the same day, you’ve really got something.
