Some pictures from this week

Here are some pictures from Brugge. It's one of the most famous cities in Belgium. Devine and I spent the day there Monday. It's a really cool city.
On the beach in Da Haan, just a few k's from our vacation house.
This is Alex. He is our Souigneur while we are at the vacation house. He is a bad ass with his great cooking and awesome massages. The guys works ridicously hard so he gets his rest in the evenings while we clean up.

Cras Avernas

So we headed out for the Cras Avernas 1.2 on this hot June Morning. We started the 200k race with John Devine, Pat McGlynn, Scott Jackson, Brandon McKeever, Winston David and myself. After a big 168k loop, the raced finished with 3 X 12k circuits. After 60k, the race had dwindled down from 140 riders to 75. Devine, Pat and I were the remaining national team riders in the peleton. As the race drove over the 5 climbs of the day, Pat and I were dropped over the last one, just 25k from the circuits. Devine got to the circuits in the main group with just 3 riders up the road. He was top ten in the group sprint. It was a solid day from Devine coming in 13th. Pat and I pulled out at the circuits just ready to be done with the hot day.
