    NorCal Training Camps

    by  • March 9, 2011 • norcal scene, womyn on weels • 0 Comments

    Many of the NorCal elite and pro teams are just finishing up their training camps. Unlike the Bjarne-Riis-Navy-Seal-Coldwater-Sky-Diving-Hang-Out-In-Caymans-Meet-Lances-Movie-Star-Friends-Ski-Trip training camps these teams keep things simple with a lot of riding and some race and sponsor education. We took a look at a few of the camps the last few weeks to see how they...

    Despite weather abating it sounds like the Snelling depth wasn’t the same as usual this year. I blame the threats of snow and Hernando’s rant – Hernado is the cause of all that is evil. Unions in Wisconsin, Lance Armstrong’s woes, and that travesty named Colin Firth winning a grammy. Without him the world...
