Back on track and slightly on the attack...

I have not forgotten my blogger life! I have just been VERY busy these days. Yes, I am now a Race Pro turned Sales Pro, but don't let that fool you --I will be kitting up and getting busy racing next year! More news to come on that ... but man, I got to say that I am not at all pleased with the "report" I read on Cycling News about the 2008 NRC racing schedule announcement (no offense to Mr. Mark Zalewski...because it's not his fault!)
It's just that the report reminds me how much the women in our sport are being left behind....and that totally gets me riled up people.


Now now now.. you don't have to tell me, I know that there are plenty of way cool people out there doing their part support grow and enhance our sport for women, but it's time that the big daddy (USA Cycling) does it's part too. Make some dang requirements that these big time mens races, at the very least(!), add a one day women's criterium or circuit race to the schedule. Don't tell me it's too hard or that it costs too much money, please don't go there. It's not that hard!


People are accomplishing way more difficult tasks in this world.

I am always checking your blog and I like it very much.
You are "complaining" about the schedule and how female cyclists are always left behind... but I tell you... you are lucky comparing to our schedule here in Brazil... we don't have much support, we don't have many races, etc... so I really know what you are talking about there. :))

Good Luck to you in your next season!!
