Why am I awake and sitting in front of my laptop just before 11:00PM? Call it dedication, call it stupidity, call it devotion... I call it insomnia (with hints of stupidity thrown in for fun).
There has been a lot going on in the industry and sport these past few weeks. I haven't had the chance to spend much time talking about much of anything just because I have been so busy. I dodn't remember last year at this time being quite so crazy. Then again, last year I was still "the new guy" and they were afraid to let me use scissors or the electric stapler. Still, I swear this year is more full of things to do... and so much more remains to be done.
Next week I will be visiting Houston, Texas (more details to follow). If you're in Houston and want to meet the Masiguy, well this is your chance. I get in to town Thursday and I have been told there is a great night ride in the city, so I am planning to pull my bike out of the case and get it built in time to do the ride and stretch the legs after a day of flying and airports. Can't wait to see you Houstonians! (If you know of any good Sunday morning training/ group rides let me know because my flight home doesn't leave until late afternoon.)
I have to admit that when I read that Saunier-Duval was going to be training in San Diego this winter, with David Millar, I had an uncomfortable laugh to myself. As you may recall, I kind of singled him out for a touch of ridicule over his doping offense. I kind of doubt he's going to come looking for me and try to settle the score, but then again you never know. How cool would that be?
I had a few other witty comments, but now I'm finally feeling a little sleepy so I'm heading off to bed.
