  • I saw the wide eyes from the recognition of a broken bone - over and over - the acknowledgement of lost opportunities and time, and maybe, by way of this impact, a lifetime’s dream deferred. I saw fear, I saw anger, I saw panic, I saw desperation, I saw resignation in the eyes and bodies of the dozen crashes that left the newly injured -  moments before so focused on their survival and possible success - without an answer. They stood there - just a crudely cradled arm, a grimace...and we were gone. Their misfortune was somewhere behind us. In front of us - riders dangling unceremoniously in ones and twos at the end of a race that devoured all but the strongest - and luckiest.
  • The Col du Sanetsch is a spectacular climb in Switzerland. We are going to write about it for the next issue of @pelotonmagazine, but it won't be much of a travel piece. There's more to this ride and Switzerland in general for Ashley. We are going to look back at a time that shaped her life, and in turn, set the sequence of events in motion that have put us where we are today. I'm excited to see Ashley's story in print.
  • Seriously steep. #iceland
  • And on the fourth day, we found heaven.
  • The 21 lancets of Alpe d'Huez form one of cycling's greatest race tracks - but the best riding is everywhere else.

  • It's about time for Arenberg! #roubaix
  • Waiting for the race at the end of Sector 7 - Moulin de Vertain. #roubaix
  • @VeloVeneto and I had planned to do a three climb monster ride out of @CastelliCycling's base in Fonzaso today. That plan was scrapped about twenty seconds into the ride when we looked up the valley and saw complete darkness and felt the rumble of thunder in the ground. We turned around. Next best choice? The 30k ascent of Monte Grappa from Caupo. Why not go for the wide open mountain with the storm from hell snapping at our shoes? Like most bad ideas, it sounded like a bad idea at the time, but still, we pressed on. Unbelievably, our idiot decision making process was rewarded with generally good weather most of the way - right up until the top, when the clouds drifted in, and we rolled on to the Rifugio in the eerie white. It was a great ride.
