Someone entertain me.
Anyone do any cool rides? Buy any cool new parts?
Sigh...
Really not looking forward to getting back to work tomorrow...

read a book, that was what I was doing last night.....helped fight off the boredom. We were talking about Beloki the other day and I found this news on cyclingnews.com (pertains to what happened to him):

Three time Tour de France podium finisher Joseba Beloki announced that he will retire from cycling on Friday, after trying but failing to find a team for 2008. The former ONCE rider was one of the strongest challengers to Lance Armstrong's string Tour de France victories until a tragic crash on melting tarmac brought him crashing down in 2003. Beloki went on to recover from a broken femur and other injuries, but was never to regain the same level of competition.

"I'm leaving with my head held high, and proud of what I've achieved," Beloki told AFP. "It's been 18 months since I last raced. And in that time I've fought tooth and nail to try and find a team, but it just didn't materialise."

Beloki now joins the ranks of cycling's old guard who wish to continue racing but cannot find contracts, including former World Champion Laurent Brochard and Spain's Oscar Sevilla.
I guess he couldn't find a contract after being implicated in Puerto, but he would like to continue racing.

I read all my books. I tried finding World War Z again last night, but it's still in a box somewhere from my move. I need to hit up the library again.

Poor Beloki, that sucks. He'd definitely be invited to our "upgraded" Tour of America...


Side note: I came in to work this AM to a weird, fermenty smell in my office, and a box wrapped in a heavy plastic bag on my desk. Turns out one of our partner brands sent me a box with two bottles of wine and some cheese in it. Only one bottle made it, and the shipper sealed the box in plastic. Man, it was hot, and stinky in there. Guess that's what happens when you give a bottle of red wine and a bunch of cheese a week or so in a plastic bag to hang out together...
