69 days to go until the Hillsboro-Roubaix. Thank god its a leap year, then we get the extra day in February! It looks like we will either caravan it down on Friday or rent a huge club van and stuff it full of gear, either way will be going down a day early. I suppose if we get down there early enough we could pre-ride some if not all of the course. Who knows, doing so may prove critical to how succesful of a debut we have.
It is incredible to think of all the hard work, emails, phone calls, meetings and decisions that have already been made, and we haven't even turned a pedal in anger yet as a team. It has been a long few months since we started talking about forming this team, and I'd like to think we have come a long way. And I can only imagine how much longer we have to go. The good thing is that the team allows Elvis, Tony and myself to make most of the decisions on their behalf. And they actually trust us! Lets see how long that may last. Well back to the rollers for me, I can't wait for the weather to warm up.
