A Storm is Brewing....


The Cascade Classic starts in less than two weeks. I was on the website checking out my competition, and was pretty impressed with the start list: full teams from Bissell, Health Net, Toyota, BMC, Type 1, and -- awh shit -- Garmin/Chipotle?

I suppose you could argue that the guys going to the Cascade Classic are Garmin/Chipotle's B-team, seeing as how they'll also be sending a team to a little stage race in France that overlaps. That said, I'm still intimidated. B-team or not, guys like Tom Danielson (a multiple time top-ten GC Vuelta De Espana finisher, and record holder for like 70% of the nation's hillclimbs), and Tyler Ferrar (also a pro-tour veteran, and like 30 time national champion) are not so be scoffed at. I'm really exited to be racing against these guys, cuz honestly, I'm a pretty big fan. I know some of them are jaded they're not at the tour, but I hope they still take the Cascade Classic seriously, and ride like they're there to win it. Knock it out of the park Garmin/Chipotle!!!!
