Well we are at camp! AND IT IS AWESOME!! We have just met our new seigneur, Bob, and he rocks! Our new Director Sportifs Gary and Ken have also arrived; both bringing a wealth of knowledge, experience and worry-free laid back but business attitude that bolsters the confidence of every one involved in the Team Exergy "totally crush" 2012 project.
But let's get visual...I am riding into the sunset in the third row of 16 spinning cyclists. Andres Diaz and Freddie Rodriguez guide us home, the two leaders of the team. One dressed in black kit, one in white. The white fog line extends out between the tight gap of their shoulders. A row of 60 foot coconut trees vaguely shield the northern view of sun-splashed avocado-stained hills, the many layers of the bark and top-most green leaves stand over and judge our 2x8 formation underneath; as if they stand as all the teams that have ridden these roads in their opening training camps, all those professionals who've come before us.
Although this is just another year in the small and sometimes unknown world of professional cycling, this year, this spring, this week, this first day are all massive steps for Team Exergy. And I'm very happy to be on piste!
