85 kilometers around an INTERESTING course, right in the heart of Washington--WHO'S EXCITED?!
I'm getting ready to ride my bike with a backpack of stuff over to Doylestown, PA to hitch a ride with Jackie Simes and his pops, then we're shacked up at the swanky Hotel Harrington with swanny-support! We'll be racing our bikes tomorrow, just just sitting in, because I have a feeling that Garmin will continue to attack until it gets a couple guys in a five man break (so that they can get second place, of course!). We have excellent options for bike racing tomorrow with the ever-attacking Hamblen (who should be ripping it because 'cross season is coming up) as well as strong-man Tom Soladay.
However, we have a ringer: Adam Myerson. He is going very well (again, those 'cross guys can get MOTIVATED) and we'll try to give him a clear shot at the line on the last lap if it's all together.
Stay tuned, this should be interesting!
