Last guy riding

"Michael was one of the first riders in the peloton to come down with the sickness that blitzed through the peloton and race staff. He was awake nearly the entire night Sunday and very nearly didn't start the race Monday. . . . Attacking from the start of the [final] 93-mile (150 km) stage, Creed played an instrumental role in a pair of breakaways that stayed clear of the peloton on a rain-soaked, bone-chilling ride from Santa Clarita to Pasadena. Aggressive to the end, Rock Racing nearly scored its second podium finish of the race when Creed attacked inside the final mile and finished fourth in a five-up sprint in front of the Rose Bowl."
Did you notice Bettini's leg muscles in the photo? If I were a pro going up against him, those would hurt my eyes to look at.
Oh, one thought on the Rock Racing kits - fashion design meets bike racing with a bang.
