Been scrounging around for Team Discovery news... It takes a fair amount of time to surf around, but I do see that guys on our team are riding events in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. I’m trying to keep track and post races or results on the Discovery Team Fan Zone,, but there’s really no list of all the races that the guys do. Yeah, I know there’s a 2005 racing schedule, but the riders add a lot of smaller races. Popo, Paolo and Max have raced, and a team did the HEW Classic in Germany. I think Roger had the best DC time with a 22nd place.

I see that Mike Creed may ride the SF Grand Prix in September, but also the Tour de L'Ain on August 7th and the Classica San Sebastian on Aug 13th. His website,, has a lot of my pics up. Roger Hammond will be doing the SF Grand Prix, too, as well as the Benelux Tour and the Tour of Germany. Roger’s been having a few twinges of ankle and knee problems since he hit the post in Gent-Wevelgem, but he’s taking pretty good care... And, I think Tom D’s knee problem has been solved - he’s riding well. He’ll do the Clasica San Sebastian and then the Vuelta.

Looks like I’ll be doing the Course Marshall Coordinator gig at the San Francisco Grand Prix on September 4th, so as usual, we need lots of volunteers! We need your help to keep this great race alive and well! It’s your chance to see lots of great International racers, as well as our fine American teams. No, not everybody who volunteers can be on the Fillmore or Taylor climbs, but we need folks at busy intersections to protect those riders....Their safety, to a great extent, depends on having plenty of course marshals. Yep, you stand around all day and get lunch, water and a tee shirt, but you’ve also helped to keep International cycling coming back to the Bay Area. I love course marshaling, no matter where my post is, and I volunteer for local races as often as possible. It’s a great way to really be a part of an event. Go to the link and sign up - we need you!
