after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen... [anonymous comments are lame, cowboy up and put a name or start a blog]

check out basso on mulholland [?], no sooner had i been tauting graham's words on basso, he was out taking photo's of him in his new kit and bike. think basso had been thinking about discovery for awhile? check out all of his private sponsor gear in discovery blue and grey. good luck ivan and thanks for foiling another french plot to get rid of the best riders. oh a word to the wise, were a helmet in LA, for that matter everywhere, kids are looking. helmets are COOL and they have saved my life more than once, cars hurt.

    Cars only hurt when you let them run you over- I am too good to let that happen.

    In Italia, we only let the bella donnas wear the helmet. We beautiful men do not, for it is a sin against the women who adore us.

    Yes, of course I spent many years thinking of riding on the Lance team. But he and I both knew I was prettier and would get all the women. Lance, he no like that idea much.

    The shoes are the most important part of cycling. Ask any Italian rider and he will telll you same thing. I no can ride the Nike- skifoso! Sidi is a shoes to be loved and cherished because it is Italian.

    I'm still trying to find a way to love the bike, but it will be hard. (I secretly train on my old Cervelo.)

    Thank you for your conituned worship. Ciao!
