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...

GIRO ACTION

giro stages have been moving right along and now tomorrow we are at stage 7. all of my favorites are still hanging tough and are in position to all be in the top 10 at the finish. it has been hard for me to get into the passion that is the giro, as i have not been able to follow the race live [cycling.tv]. i think back to possibly the best giro of recent history, the 2005 giro. i am waiting for a non favorite to come to the fore and for the fireworks to begin. i will give props to the tinkoff team for striving to goner the coveted jens voigt jersey. they still have some work to do, but they are certainly making this race so far, along with the other conti teams. the giro is the one race that the conti teams have a chance to shake things up and it makes for some great racing highlights. i think this is what the big race organizers are trying to say in regards to the protour races. let us pick the teams and put in some more of the smaller teams [or friends], they seem to actually bring more passion, courage, the underdog effect, and true racing excitement to the events. after all isn't that what we relish about bike racing.
