Fun times at VK team camp this weekend...Had some awesome rides, good bonding with new teammates, great hangtime with some key VK supporters (including the hnic Dave Verecchia--owner of VK, fellow pisan and hilarious ballbuster originally from Motown Philly). I got some serious flow going on the new bicis--Colnago with Clement tires and mega nutrition and recovery from Osmo (to name just a few. And I get to continue with Smith for my 5th season in a row (not counting the year of the alien incubation).
Oh, and I got reverse peer pressured into taking my first step off the information supersidewalk. No one told me I had to get on Facespace, twittergram, snapgiggle or whatever else is out there...But it became abundantly clear that something outside of blogging was going to really be necessary to even approach the same solar system that my teammates, our VIP supporters, friends and sponsors all seem to orbit. So I popped my twerry and got on twitter. Hopefully it won't ruin my life.
Anyway, thanks to everyone for a super awesome weekend. More to say on all this...so stay tuned. And if the verbosity of my blog isn't your thing, check me out on twitter (it feels dirty to say that).
