Elcyclista at the Start Village.

March 25, 2011

Curtains drawn, they pull up one by one, with fans rushing to peer through the curtain cracks, hoping to get a glimpse of a rider – I actually heard one guy claim “that is Ballan’s leg!” Mechanics remove bikes from racks and the parade of bikes begins.

I was prevented from completing the build yesterday evening due to the loss or misplacement of my motherfu**ing bottom bracket lockring. No matter, sometimes stretching out these types of activities is the best way.
