Marin Classic

This weekend, I had the honor to participate in the Marin Classic.  The Marin Classic is a fundraiser ride for the USA Cycling Developmental Foundation.  The USACDF is a non-profit organization for the developmental and fostering of national team and future Olympic athletes.  This is an awesome program!

The ride was highlighted by several “celebrity” appearances, like Dave Zabriskie, Amber Neben, Kat Carroll, Shelley Olds, and the Specialized Masters team (which is full of celebrity talent)… We did a 60 mile loop to Olema and down the coast… The ride was escorted by CHP, so no stopping at traffic lights, although some of the riders “utilized” the CHP support for assistance climbing out of Muir Beach… Ha.

It was a true honor to be a part of this ride, to thank those who supported me in Europe, and gave me the chance to race for the USA!  It was a good time for me to thank those that attended, and meet some of the people behind the USACDF, like Steve Johnson and Tom Weisel… and re-connect with those who I have seen in a while…

Thank you for joining me on such a great ride!  Bob Cullinan (local media celebrity) was there and took some good shots of the ride…We met at Poggio in Sausalito and enjoyed cappucino before the ride, and a great meal and spa treament after.  Life is good.  A big thank you to Julia Violich for organizing the event…
