Wout Poels

I love hearing about stories that exhibit riders who overcome some pretty big obstacles and still make it back to where they were or even exceed their previous standards. In the 2012 Tour - Vacansoleil rider Wout Poels suffered major injuries from a crash in the 6th stage; broken ribs, ruptured spleen, damaged kidneys. Six months later he made the top 10 in the Tirreno-Adriatico.


Winter in Las Vegas

Just a typical winter day today. 73 degrees and enough sun for a sunburn. Me and Jonas road out the Arrow Head Trail, around the NSC criterium a couple times and back home. First substantial ride in several months. I have been blessed with very mild side effects from taking Gleevec every day. I started training again last month, hopefully there will be another triathlon in my future before the end of this year.
