We are suffering for snowfall this year, but if that is the worst of my worries, well, no worries.
It was Germany's Andre Griepel winning stage 4 of the Santos Tour Dwon Under today, he's basically crushing the race right now and pissing off the homefolk of Robbie McEwen. Radio shack has got Steegmans in the mix in 4th overall and I must admit that now that I've seen the RS kit in action, it actually looks pretty damn good. After all, it is the same colors that the Fair Lawn High School Cutters fly, and you all know that Bruce Jankowski graduated from there.
Stage three recaps..
And here is one that NONE of you will get, however I do because I'm just an old guy..from Fair Lawn, NJ.

When I was ten years old, in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, one of my best friend's dad, Kenny Mead, was a volunteer for the ambulance core in our home town. One of the coolest memories I have of those days was getting to ride in the BACK OF THE AMBULANCE to the home games for the Fair Lawn Cutters. I was probably on the sideline of some of these games tossing a football with Kenny after we popped out of the back of the ambulance. If you laugh at this video you will go to hell with Pat Robertson.

Footon-Servetto-Fuji introduced their new kits for the Spanish Tour Team to which A2B says whoooaaaaa doggie. I'm not sure, wait a second, is the kit the one in the middle? Or those sausage holders on the outside? Whoa Nellie...looks like something you might wear to the Grammys. It's a tie between these and the 2010 Radio Shack kits for the worst of the upcoming season. I saw Lance modeling the RS kit on Mud and Cowbells and almost shat, yes there are some things that not even can don the pages of A2B. I'll bet when they tried these "things" on they looked in the mirror and thought to themselves..."gee, I've always wanted a cycling kit that looks like a caveman stepped in a turd".

Nite Rider has hit the mark with the Pro 1200 LED Lithium Ion headlight system. It's actually two beams, a 600 lumen flood and a 600 lumen spot that you can use individually or together for those recon missions late night up on Hardscrabble Mountain. You'll be rippin around at night like a Mercedes SLK230 on the freekin Autoban once you mount this deal up on your helmet or handle bar. It's got three full on commando modes as well as a blinking "safety mode" for those trecks down Highway 6 in the summer evenings. Plus the battery charger has got some pretty sweet disco lights to entertain you while the battery rejuices itself. Recharge time is 4.5 hours, and this is the amazing part, depending on the mode you choose to program into your light through your computer (yeah, you can program this thing), run time is 2.5-64 hours, no shit, 64 hours on it's mellow setting say for hiking or camping...to which I say, buy it.

Meanwhile, there is still some serious throw down happening over in Belgium as the USA gears up for World's. And how about this? Yannick Eckman (2nd), Skyler Trujillo (7th), and Jeff Bahnson (10th) in Baal, Belgium this past weekend. Three USA kids in the top 10...I'm calling that a crush. Jonothan Page stood on the podge as well but the U23 crew was not as fortunate as most exited early on...
Eckman steps on the podge...
all pics from cx magazine
Trujillo did not screw around either finishing 7th
Summerhill was not as fortunate this weekend...but will be back for certain
