Velogal's Blog

Here's a shot from the Dirt Jumping practice area yesterday. Sea Otter was hopping, for a Thursday. I wandered around the Sea Otter Village Expo, and it is just the Best this year. Anybody and everybody in the cycling world has a booth there - Awesome! You gotta come to the Sea Otter this year!
I'll be working the Amateur Circuit Race on the Laguna Seca racetrack all day today..

I want to send positive and healing thoughts to Saul Raisin and his family. I'm going thru a similar thing with a member of my family, so I know how scary and anxious they must feel. All my best to them....


  • What happened to Saul is quite a shock--and my thoughts and best wishes go out to him and his family as well, and to your family member too, Velogal. That's really tough.
    Thanks for keeping us updated on the cycling world.

  • Best wishes to Saul and to your family member. All of us who've been through something like this know that coma and head injury is so tough on loved-ones too, not only on the injured person. Emotions go back and forth from 'hopeless' to 'he'll be ok' at frantic pace.
    Also a word of encouragement to George Hincapie. Yesterday must have been so difficult. This could have easily seriously injured or even killed him. Stay touch big guy, you're still the best!
    Take care,

  • April 13th: Saul's condition is continuing to improve. He was taken off the ventilator he was put on while he was in a coma, and is answering questions by noding his head. His doctors hope to move him out of intensive care in the next few days, and fly him back to a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia in the coming weeks.

    The fourth stage of this years Tour de Georgia starts in Saul's hometown (Dalton).
