I had wanted to get a good picture of David Millar because he’s a damn cool guy. That didn’t really happen. But, a decent picture of Christian Vandevelde did. (I have to confess though that I’m not 100% certain this is Vandevelde - it could be David Morton)
Things I learned today #TOA13 edition. 4. The announcers before the race were saying that not everyone in the field was out to win the race. And they were right. Some guys were clearly just going out and back, and looking forward to getting back in the bus. This is (probably) Steven Kruijswijk, and he was going out to KILL PAVEMENT.
Things I learned today #TOA13 edition. 3. I wasn’t the only one rockin’ a vintage ride - check out this sweet little CycleTech. I can’t read the model of it, but you just can’t beat steel and skinwall tires.
Things I learned today #TOA13 edition. 2. The NEILPRYDE bikes of the UHC Pro team were VERY nice. I don’t think many teams run handbuilt ie. non-system wheels, but they had deep section ENVE rims on gold Chris King hubs that were sweet.
