News Flash; Chris Horner wins stage 2 of Tour of Romandie!

Chris Horner, a former co-worker of mine, a great guy and somebody I trained with many times over the years, just won the second stage of the Tour of Romandie, solo. The time bonus and 4 second gap between him and Alejandro Valverde have placed him in the overall lead of the Tour.

Congratualtions Chris! Your friends here in San Diego are thrilled and pulling for you to take the overall title! Way to go...

Horner's the man. What a great story... it's good to see somebody go to Europe and make it on the second try. Most folks would have given up their dreams after the first try fizzled.
