Traffic & Sun: Los Angeles, CA
March 23, 2006
We went out for a 4 hour ride today, just spinning & checking out the prologue & road race courses. They both look pretty good; the only bad news is that Jonathan won’t be able to follow me in the team car during the prologue because they’re not allowing it. It’s better if he can follow & tell me what to do, but it’s short so hopefully it won’t make a big difference.
The weather was in the upper 70’s today. I guess they got the bad stuff out of the way when I left ToC… I’ve gotta tell you though, it’s a nice change to be out of the wet and cold that was back in Seattle- a bit abrupt, but swell nonetheless.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting back out there and mixing it up with some of the big teams. It’ll be enjoyable wiping the smirk off the faces of the “high-strung” domestic teams (AKA: Health Net, Toyota-United, and Navigators).
