A day in the life... Cycling Camp

Each day is kind of like the last here.  

Wake, eat, ride, eat, stretch, eat, sleep.

Devon (Brian's pilot) and Brayden....  getting some fuel into the tank.

During the ride...  From left:  Andrew (mechanic #2), Eric, Mark

Mark Beggs... rolling the handcycle.  

This is what $2,000 worth of bike tools looks like. I would like a set like that....

More bike shots...  Brayden's TT bike sitting in a box...  Specialized wins the bike count here in Clermont.

An SRM and two Powertaps....  lots of nice stuff here...

Andrew giving my bike a wash....  I don't think my bike has ever had it so good.

This is Bike Mechanic currency....

Arnica Gel - If you haven't used Arnica before give it a try.  When your muscles are sore massage it in and you'll be on your way to a recovery.  All natural and used by tour riders (and hacks like me). 

Reading poolside...  the cap is not a fashion statement.  My head is still a little pink.

All of the ingredients for a quick recovery:  Arnica, fluids, compression socks, lounge chair, pool, book.  The sandwich is already in my belly.

Sebastian hot dogging during the "Skills Competition" last night....
