    by  • June 18, 2011 • race coverage • 3 Comments

Cal Giant on top, flanked by two Marc Pro-Strava fellas,  with Yahoo oddly awkwardly standing to the side… and then there is a Webcor presence hanging in the background.  Jesse Moore took his second District...

    If there is one thing I hate it is Seattle.  The reasons are many but I finally walked away from trying to like that crap hole when my dog sat on a hypodermic needle during a three day visit.  I pulled the needled out of his butt out and never looked back.  For what...

I think I will have to get some twitter hastags out...
