Daily Roundup: Catching up on 3-feet-please and Lance

In Bicycling, Daily Roundup on April 28, 2009 at 5:16 am

Traveling back from the hugely successful Sea Otter Classic and brought back to Seattle some digitally compressed California sunshine, 1,000/1 ratio enabling an entire afternoon of sunlight to be transported in a container the size of a bike water bottle. US Patent No. A3587468bbT It’s all in the algorithm. I have enough in store to last thru the week and the big Fluidride Cup race this weekend in Port Angeles.

Am sorry to hear from David Hiller at Seattle’s Cascade Bicycle Club that the 3-feet-please law died in the Senate transportation committee earlier this month. Colorado fared better and things are going down to the wire in Oregon. More wins than losses these days, though, and that means progress.

Wishing Lance all the best at Gila, but is it a warmup for Giro or…? Nothing much has been said recently about Lance competing in Italy and the Giro starts a week from Saturday. My best wild guess: Teammate Levi was sent out to consult with Lance, get a read on Lance’s conditioning, mindset, etc., and report back to Team Astana director Johan Bruyneel. Lance is probably all systems go but it may not be his decision to make. A ceremonial appearance may be the best compromise. I must say it’s remarkable that Lance is back racing already, albeit a bit risky if he’s truly counting on doing the Giro. Best of luck!

Good to be back!
