So this has been an interesting week in the world of cycling. Discovery pulls sponsorship, which seems odd considering the year they are about to have. All 3 grand tours and Paris-Roubaix. Anyway I'm sure AMD will step up or another big American company. Maybe Motorola will get back in the game. Probably not, but just as well. Tyler Hamilton returned to racing. I'm actually glad to see him back. Hopefully we won't have to hear about his dead dog this time around. Floyd is being denied access to some of his tests by the USADA, and that is not good. I hope he is found not guilty and allowed to return to racing. SRAM has to recall some of their road bike brakes because of faulty materials. The Tour of Missouri announced their route. They are starting in KC on Sept. 11 and finishing in St. Louis. Big days for the Trek Stores and I'm going to hopefully go to KC on the 11th to see the start of the race. I am definitely excited about that. On a personal level, I will be moving to Highgear progressively in the next few weeks, full-time. I am very excited about this opportunity because it allows me to immerse myself more in what I love, road bikes, while providing a door into which I hope to build my future. I do not hide that bikes are my life, but I want to turn it into my career and this move gives me an opportunity to excel and advance.
