Blue is the new green

I'm not even sure where to start...these guys in the picture are the guys I've been riding and racing with for years back in Chicago. Not everyone is represented in this team photo taken after the Winfield Twilight Criterium, but these guys and those not represented have been awesome teammates and friends...well, they'll always remain great friends.

I'm jumping ship. Racing solo is a tough task and that's pretty much what I've been up to whenever racing out here since I moved to SF. This week, I've accepted a spot on the Kovarus/Squadra Ovest Racing Team. This team reminds me much of my Chicago roots with TGAGC...serious about racing, fun guys, train together and just have a great time racing/riding.

New kit is on the way. Here's a small team photo they took a while back:

In other A.DIG news... I've been hitting it pretty hard lately...
My buddy Anthony and I have been jetting out after work for some hill training, mainly in the Headlands. I pulled off an exciting 11th place finish at the Timpani Criterium in Santa Clara (my best result out west so far). Did a bit of business travel on Monday (The OC) and then went on a nasty ride yesterday with Anthony, Phil and Vince - the wind was insanely in our face as we climbed and even the descents were scary with the crosswinds. Tonight was a short recovery ride, followed-up with a trip to Trader Joes for some fuel.

Sorry to see you go ADig but it was inevitable.

Still not sure how you are going to pull off the green / blue colour explosion though. You'll have guys afraid to sprint against you on aesthetic grounds alone ;)
