In the meantime here is a link with a pic to Cole House, a Wisconsin local, who won a fairly prestigious race in Belgium for U23 riders, great job to him and good exposure for Wisco riders. Check it out......

Other than that, too bad about Lance, I was disappointed that he crashed (just think how he felt), I was really looking forward to seeing how he would do in his first Giro. Sounds like he will definitely be back for the Tour, but may skip the Giro or just do part of it. He probably won't be competitive as planned, but you never know with Lance, he's a very determined person.
Also, check out the WCA website, wicycling.org, and read the article about Paul Warloski, a local cyclist that got hit by a car recently. He's got a good blog about his rehabilitation and sounds like he is in good spirits. I live in the same area as Paul and have seen him out riding quite a few times, along with racing along side him in a bunch of races in 2007 before I upgraded last year. He seemed like a really nice guy so I wish him the best in his recovery.
That's it for now, until next time.....

On another note, I got my USAC Coaching certification so I'm now a level 3 coach (only) but will continue to learn as much as I can and hope to obtain a level 2 certification as soon as possible. I've got to figure out how I want to go about doing some coaching just to get some experience, I'll probably just start with friends and family that ride and some word of mouth, but at this point I'm not looking to take anyone on for payment, I need to organize things a bit first. I'm working on my American College of Sports Medicine Personal Trainer certification as well so I hope to tie them both together to do some coaching and training together, probably work part time at a fitness center as well. There is the Princeton Club by my house which is a huuggge fitness center, so a weekend job or weeknights there in the winter may be in order. No way I'd do it over the summer though, I need to bike or I'd go crazy. Well, more crazy than I already am. That's it for now, good riding to everyone this weekend, until next time.........

Now on to the weird part of the day. I'm driving back with my wife from Pick N' Save here in New Berlin and as we are heading down National I see this big yellow truck and trailer in a parking lot between Culvers and a car wash. It's a crappy old parking lot that's used for a number of things, Christmas tree sales in the winter, people park their cars there to sell, cops sit there, it's really not used for anything. Today though it was used to park this beast -
I have no clue why it was there and I could only fathom a guess that it was filled with goodies that I would want and there was no one sitting in it. My guess is that they were driving to some event some where and stopped at Culvers to eat. I have no clue what could be going in Wisconsin at this time of year that would yield a visit from this beautiful Mavic truck, but I want to know. They didn't stop at my house and drop off a bunch of wheels so it couldn't have been anything too good. Oh well. Until next time.......

On another note, looks like Contador was actually human today, although a hunger knock was the cause, maybe not so much his fitness, so I'm sure he's not so worried about what appears inevitable for the TdF, a victory. His team at Paris-Nice is definitely not the "A" team though so his supporting cast can't really be to blame, they just aren't that good except for Popovych, who is one of the few from this squad who will be on the TdF squad.
Well, that's it for now, until next time.........
