Hello from the Supercuts Cougar Mountain Classic at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. Hadn’t been here before, but I’ll be back. It’s a really cool venue and this event is going to take off, especially for the fans that love the Sea Otter.

Levi Leipheimer, local boy gone good, was there to lead the Supercuts Slow Ride – a fundraiser for Katrina animal rescue efforts. Odessa wasn’t there – Levi said she was busy organizing a bunch of fundraisers, so stay tuned for more information and put up some dollars to help our most faithful and forgotten friends – the silent victims of Katrina and the evacuation. Many animals that survived were abandoned and left to starve by the forced evacuation… The existing Animal Rescue teams were blocked by the idiotic bureaucracy of FEMA – who wouldn’t give the OK for the teams to get out there and save animals…

Several lucky people and one delighted kid were riding the Infineon Raceway course with the guy who came in Sixth at the 2005 Tour de France. You shudda been there… they did several slow laps – every rider was grinning from ear-to-ear. Levi is a great guy and was just super with the people who rode with him…I have a bunch of shots that I’ll put up in my smugmug gallery in the next couple of days.

By the way, Levi said he wasn't surprised that his team-mate Fabian Weggman won the BGI Grand Prix SF. Levi said that Fabian was so on form and ready for that race...

No road events today, so I’ll shoot some MTB stuff..
