The other day Lance Armstrong announced that he would be starting a new cycling team from 2010 sponsored by Radio Shack. I think it will be cool seeing how they perform as a new team. There is lots of speculation about what riders will be part of this team, but nothing is set in stone yet. Should be cool.

This is the first year I have really followed the TdF. I have watched every stage, at least fast forward through them to the good parts, its been so much fun to watch.
Tomorrow they race the last 'real' stage of the tour, with a huge uphill finish on the Mont Ventoux. The final Km averages 10 percent grade, brutal. Sunday ends in Paris with a circuit race on the the Champs Elysees.
Contador pretty much has it in the bag, barring any injuries or crazy mishaps during the stage, however you never know on a huge climb, if someone has the legs they can battle it out. Its very unlikely, Contador's a freaking billy goat.
Thank you TdF for all the fun for the past 3 weeks, its been great. Cheers.

By way of a few strange emails I ended up getting booked to take some photos for a company called Pace Sportswear, they make cycling caps and custom full kits. So last Friday I took a handful of my summer staff and did a photo shoot with some of the caps they sent. Here are a few photos that we took. Click on the images to see them larger.

5 cyclist were hit by a van in Ottawa the other day. Sucks. Here is a link to the article.
I always have to remind Rach that I try to ride as carefully as I can when I am on the road or on the trails for the matter.
Please always drive really carefully when bikes are present. Cheers.

Rach and I went to the new Harry Potter movie this morning and I loved it.
From the way it was shot to the music it tells the story amazingly. I have been wondering for years how they will tell the story of the huge books in a 2 hour movie, but they did a wonderful job of condensing the story and still getting the important information to the viewer.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

On the 4th of July there is a parade here in Prescott and we, UCYC, pick up the horse poop. We dress up and make a big show out of it, its a ton of fun. Here is our team.
We were Trojan warriors and built a Trojan horse. The secret of our horse was that the back end was cut so we would pick up the horse poop and put it back in the butt of the horse. It was pretty funny. Cheers.

Ray and I are watching So You Think You Can Dance tonight and I really miss being around dancers. There is something in their spirit and how they carry themselves that I really enjoy and miss working with.
Also while watching I realize that while I really love music there is something about music when its backing a great dance that makes it complete. I mean I don't even own and stereo at home, I rarely listen to music, but watching a creative performance backed by a great song makes something that is way bigger than just a song and a dance. I like that a lot. Cheers.
