Game time draws near for the industry mama.

This will be my mantra going into The 2008 Redlands Cycling Classic.

A Picture Report....the beginning of good times with Team Advil Chapstick 2008


There we were...eleven women, finally coming together to get the season underway. Our training camp was in the beautiful town of Asheville, North Carolina, and although it was the most cold and the most snow (one little flurry!) this fair weather rider has seen in a long time...I have to say that it was also a very enjoyable and awesome trip. Of course...those who know me, know that Asheville is one of my favorite places on the planet, so it's probably no surprise to know that I just didn't want to leave when it came time to pack it up and head back home! The pictures above give you a little snapshot into our time together training, and enjoying the culture of Asheville!

Allow me to introduce to you the spectacular ladies of this sport that represent our team.

...this is not a palomares introduction by the way ;-)

Although I am definitely rooting for my American friends in the international peloton, I must admit it makes me smile to see Fuji on the podium!! Suzanne is an amazing rider.

The joys of putting on cycling clinics...

It's emails like this that make my day :)

......"Anyway, I think it was your class that planted the seed of the idea to get a new shorter bike, and here it’s grown to real fruit, so thanks for the seed. Have a terrific racing season. And if you’re in town, you are welcome to go for a spin on my new toy."
