This is the time of year when men of stature meet behind closed doors amid cigar smoke and the heavy smell of scotch whiskey to decide the future of hapless cycling teams around the world. In a swift wisk of a pen a riders future can be made or broken.
In the news today, Cervelo is done with CSC, Scott is done with Beef, and Gerolsteiner is just done period. Rabobank's gonna ride Giant's, who know's where that leaves Columbia and the beat goes on.
I am happy to announce that I have extended with Vassago Cycles for 2009 and to quote Timbuk 3, "The future's so bright I gotta wear shades". I am looking forward to riding the best bikes made, as far as I am concerned, again next year and am looking forward to what 2009 has to offer.
My 2009 schedule is being finalized and some new sponsors may come on board. I plan to take my racing to a whole 'nother level and in short some exciting things are brewing.
Many, many thanks to Vassago Cycles, WTB, White Bros, Ergon, Crank Bros, Carbo-Rocket and Under Armour.
You guys rock!
