Tour of Elk Grove

July 31, 2009 at 11:20 am Leave a comment

Today is the start of the 3-stage Tour of Elk Grove with over $152,000 prize money. I am hoping to crack the Top 25 on stages 2 and 3 to help pay for our trip in addition to the generous sponsorships I have received. With the overall GC likely to be separated by less than a minute largely determined by today’s 4.5 mile time trial, I do not have any GC ambitions unless I can sneak into an unexpected break tomorrow or Sunday. The field here is sure to be very strong with Chris Horner from Astana as well as strong teams from Kelly-Benefits, Rock Racing, Bissell, Jelly Belly, and maybe BMC?
