    Tour of Utah - We met Bobke and DZ

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I managed to head to the start of the 2nd stage of the Tour of Utah this morning. It started at Thanksgiving Point and ends in the Mount Nebo Loop. Lots of climbing for them today.

    I took my niece with me. She managed to get her picture taken with David Zabriskie and Bob Roll. DZ was getting ready to get on the bike and line up but was so gracious to stop. We met Bob after the riders were off. When he saw my niece walk up he stopped talking to the adults around him and focused on her. He was sweet + asking her how she liked the race and what she thought of all the riders. It was a fun morning.

    Hopefully we will manage to catch the stages on Friday and Saturday.

    Two of my favorite folks in pro cycling. I'm so envious of your niece.
    "How about if we all just try to follow these very simple rules of the road? Drive like the person ahead on the bike is your son/daughter. Ride like the cars are ambulances carrying your loved ones to the emergency room. This should cover everything, unless you are a complete sociopath."
    David Desautels, in a letter to velonews.com

    Random babblings and some stuff to look at.
