I know I've showed you this shot before, but now it's been published! Last week, the December issue of the French cycling magazine Velo arrived on my door step, and right there on page 72 is me!
Back in October, the magazine dispatched photographer Richard Delume to New York City to collect images for a monthly feature on riders from around the world. He shot a number of NYC based racers, including my team mate, Scott.
Richard, who speaks little English, explained that the point of the feature was to show readers the varieties and combinations of gear used all over the world. On the magazine's facing page was Akihro Yokoyama of Tokyo, and the magazine featured gear that each of use. Richard picked my Continental rubber, Fizik saddle, Diadora shoes, and FSA crank. Also featured were Akihro's DeRosa bike, his Sidi shoes, Campy Bora wheels, and Exteondo jersey.
So, right at this moment thousands of readers in France, from people sitting in airport waiting rooms, to people reading a bit before bed, to people having an espresso and cigarette at a corner cafe, are reading about my tire choice! How cool is that?
Anyhow, that's all for tonight, but before I sign off, I wanted to let everyone know that I can't read French, so if anyone does, please let me know what I'm saying to all of France!
