I launched a business! But first, a token race report.
Today was stage eight of the Tour, which means, umm… it means we’ve raced for eight straight days.

The sky turned black as night and opened up something fierce! A sane person or group of 200-some odd people on bikes would seek refuge, but we plowed on with a job at hand.
On a brighter and unrelated note, I have taken my Middlebury degree in economics, segued that into a professional cycling career for the past decade, and somewhere in the interim started a business.
