Bad news for the week - Chris Horner crashed out of the Giro d'Italia on the monster 10th stage. A key rider for Team Astana his presence will be missed. It remains to be seen how it may affect Leipheimer's chances in the GC. Tactically there will probably be secondary effects upon the racing strategies of the other teams as well. Going into the weekend the race should be very interesting indeed!
The past weekend's MMT 100 here in Virginia was apparently a spectacular event. One local runner's blog describes his experiences there. The weather was crazy and the rain just incredible. I can only imagine how mentally and physically draining this must have been. The Team Inov-8 Blog gives a great perspective as well.
Looking out west here is a nice 12k, San Francisco's Bay to Breakers. Sounds like a nice time to share with 33,000 of your closest running friends! In Colordado - Wal Mart - yes, Wal Mart - is sponsoring the Cheyenne Canon Mountain Race. Sounds like a great event. As I look to see what trail running hijinks I can get into later this year when I may move to Monterey, CA the Pacific Coast Trail Runs look pretty good.
