Tour of California Prologue

Did you catch the TofC Prologue on TV today? Here's the PEZ summary with photos.

And did you get a load of that FELT that Jason Donald of Slipstream rode to his amazing 2nd-place finish?

That's a distant cousin of my bike Buttercup. Go FELT!

Which begs the question, why does his Felt go fast and mine doesn't? It must be those fancy race wheels he has and I don't. No doubt about it.

No, I'm sure it's the helmet. Perhaps you should consider that kind when you buy your next one. Then, you too can go that fast.

*Disclaimer: Iron Pol is not, nor does he claim to be, an expert on making bikes go fast, much less faster. He did, however, consider sleeping at a Holiday Inn Express in the past year.

Bah! I was watching the TOC and my wife changed the channel and I never made it back.

You did see that a TREK beat the Felt...right?

Nancy Toby said...

No, I saw Levi beat an unknown newbie rider.... BARELY.

I just like the argyle.

Definitely the wheels. Although there must be something to that helmet like iron pol said...why else would they wear those things!!!

Bolder said...
