Lately i’ve been slacking in my updates, ramblings … fiascos in hyperbole on this here website. Some will know that they are omissions by circumstance, not intention. And so quickly, while the clock is hidden from the wage-slaves ~

yeah, that’s right ~ Touchstone’s hard workin’ woman, OliviaD grabbed the national championship by a handful of seconds. That is just golden, folks.
Right now, Touchstone is a program with a lot of momentum. It’s a squad that loves to develop riders and give them a platform to showcase themselves for the larger, national caliber squads that scout out upcoming talent. Jill McLaughlin, Bev Harper, Stacey Marple, and more are riders who have benefited from the Touchstone touch.
I see a strong showing from these women up in Cascade this week.

From the early days of being an unknown orangcicle-clad panty wearer on the interwebs … to her new found stardom as a track rider with potential ~ Beth Newell has sparked interest in women’s track racing like only a rare few can.
At Hellyer we have star-power drawing in media and global interest. We’re talking about riders like Shelley Olds and Mary Maroon. But, what Beth Newell brings to the velodrome is this unbelievable sense of … “maybe i can do it, too”.
She’s the every woman’s champion … low-key, irreverent, saucy, unpredictable, approachable, and growing into one of the best all-around track riders you’ll ever see. She’s still got tons of work to do … but in a few years, we’ll have yet another World Cup caliber athlete coming out of NorCal.

those Frenchies are letting us know again why the book can never be eclipsed by one chapter.
i mean, come’on … fashion can only be discarded so far when we talk of aerodynamicals and frontal lobes.
