Despite what opinions you might harbor regarding ‘ol one nut and his entourage, hearing about what Lance, Johan, et al. did for Fatty speaks volumes. Volumes. It’s not every day that someone’s invited to attend a team training camp and mingle among the team, pro’s and staff alike. Reading all about this just gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling. You see, right now it’s not all about what have you done for me lately, what’s owed to whom and so on. It’s about giving. And helping.
I’d like to personally thank each and every one of you who helped Fatty and contributed to the World Bicycle Relief fund and Livestrong Foundation. Thank you! And while I’m in a good mood and tipping my chapeau, I’d like to thank Team RadioShack, the Trek-Livestrong U23 team and everyone else who made the trip out to the Old Pueblo. I hope you enjoyed your stay and had a good time on the trails…Speaking of which, I would have paid good money to watch a bunch of euro roadies attempt to navigate through cholla cactus mine fields and rock gardens. Seems some weren’t so keen on the idea.
Happy Holidays everyone. Stay safe and enjoy the trails!by
