Yes, I'm that busy...

Yes, with all that has been going into preparing for our sales meeting this week, I've been floored with work that has left it nearly impossible for me to blog very much. It sucks too because the tour has been pretty cool the past few days.

Sastre wins today and CSC has the Schleck brothers flogging Evans as well. I sure wish that Cadel would've tried some aggression this year. If he loses this Tour it will be for two reasons alone; 1) Silence-Lotto does not have the team to support a GC contender and B) he has gifted the race to Sastre, or whoever wins, by riding too conservatively. Christain Vande Velde is one of my new favorite riders too. He's exceeded ALL of my expectations of him and has surprised many by how well he has done. Garmin-Chipotle has to be applauded for the performance of the team. They've done a stellar job- nobody can doubt their legitimacy.

Sales Meeting begins officially tomorrow night with the opening ceremonies and dinner. It'll be great to get started and move on to the part of the job I really love the most- talking about the bikes! We run through Saturday and then I get Sunday off to relax and HOPEFULLY try to ride a bike again. The PowerPoint presentation is done and I am stopping myself from making any more changes to it... I have to stop!

I had the punkin until this morning when I took her to Y-Camp. I already miss her.


As I've said before- she's my buddy.

Posting may or may not happen over the next few days. I have been trying to set up my camera phone to work with Blogger, but so far it is not working. I'll keep trying because it would be great to be able to do quick posts from the meetings. I am also going to try to get video of my presentation/s... so keep an eye out for that too.

Ok... tomorrow is a LONG day, so it's time for bed.

Best of luck with the Sales Meeting; I know just how stressful they can be. Be happy with the PowerPoint preso. Remember, those presentations are never finished; there are ALWAYS changes/tweaks/adjustments to be made.

Just have fun and get on that bike!

Tim,
"Something you might consider,
An electric assisted 'commuter' bike based on HARO wares.
Reasoning, while visiting my local bike shop a 'hub dynamo' (front wheel hub motor) equipped bicycle was on the repair stand while a solution to wheel maladies was reviewed."
Identified source, a cheap bike with poorly fabricated EVERYTHING!
Employed wheels (front AND Rear) were failing. (Excessive weight!)
Say he, a 'sensible' $1,000 - $1,500 (USD) assisted bicycle would do FANTASTIC SALES!
Remember, speed limited to 19 MPH or it's NOT a bicycle!
