ABD Cycling Club
CompuTrainer Rep Extraordinaire Dave Drives tipped me to the Athletics By Design facility in Winfield, IL, an easy ride West of Chicago this morning. Looks like they are doing some very cool stuff with Multi-Rider and their Indoor TT program. (above photo) http://www.abdcycling.com/coaching/cyclingcenter.htm
It also appears like our partnership with Trek and Trek Travel is getting the green light from all parties, so RCVman will be back on the road (not a moment too soon) heading down to shoot three legs of their California Wine Country tour, starting in Santa Barbara. This May 2-5, so stay tuned. More on their fabulous International offerings and opportunities to ride seriously famous courses here. http://www.trektravel.com/ What do you think RCVman would give to shoot a couple of legs in the Alps, race week? How about the Giro, Spain, or New Zealand? Heck I'd film in Baghdad if I thought we could vend a few copies.
Just for the record, Dave and I have worked two IM Wisconsin Expos and he was my driver at Ironman Louisville in 2007. At one point we got a little ahead of the race leaders and ON MY INSTRUCTIONS we blew thru a four-way intersection narrowly avoiding a nasty broadside from a retired couple with glasses thicker than coke bottles. A few meters down the road I also instructed Dave to pay no attention to the Kentucky State Patrol officer behind us with his lights ablaze and his siren a wallin'. After all my gyrations in the attempt to show the officer that we were "official", we pulled over. All this is cleverly covered up in the IM Louisville RCV (Disc 2) by some creative editing and a "You Are Here" sign. The cop was hot and when he asked us why we shouldn't both be in jail right now and our car impounded, Dave told him. It was at that point that I had to step into the conversation and eat a HUGE PLATE of CROW, apologize, take responsibility for my poor directions and promise to NEVER EVER do that again.
Until the next time we had to, of course.
RCVmans tales of the war. August 26, 2007. Thanks for the memories DD.
