I sent in my resume. Hopefully they need a good massage therapist. Time for me to do some work.

I'm all for women's cycling! Hopefully teams like Wiggle and Lululemon-Specialized will showcase just how exciting women's cycling can be and provide strong role models for younger girls.

I think the toughest part is actually finding coverage of their races. I can usually get some good info from Twitter.

Sometimes a headwind is really a tailwind, and sometimes a tailwind is really a headwind, to your development. Deep Thoughts.

synack-

steephill.tv, my man.

I love women's cycling, especially women's 'cross. I think that's when you see how tenacious female athletes are; strip away any pretense of being "girly" and watch them battle it out.

What I find mind-blowing is how much less money female cyclists make compared to their male brethen. I do not want to start a gender fight here, but it really is incredible the disparity that is there.

I wish them luck, as much as I like watching the "established" teams like Lampre, Saxo, whateveriterationofHighRoadthereisnow, etc. I like seeing the start-ups like GreenEdge.

I'm guessing the Honda team cars are because of the motor vehicle sponsorship pulling out in the wake of the doping shitstorm?
