Thanks for the props!!!! IT is turning out to be a nice day here today - 6 degrees C and a little rain but at the moment i see the sun. We just had a nice breakfast and those who are not racing today are out on training rides - which is where i'm taking off to in five minutes! I have been updating my blog regularly while i'm here with the USA team for those who want to read a girl's viewpoint of the Hooglede-Gits happenings.
Thanks again for your mention of us here on the other side of the world!

US Cyclists did a great job this weekend. I was extremely surprised to see Jonathan Page on the podium last sunday!
