BDB100- Last Word
While much of the River Trail system will be closed to the general public, most of the miles for tomorrow's BDB100 will be on open roads, and there are some other events that will bring traffic to the locale of the finish in Argenta. Burns Park is hosting a soccer tournament so the short stretch of road through there will be busy with distracted soccer moms, and there is a Family Fun Fest at Dickey-Stephens Park downtown. Traffic control is always good, but let's all be careful out there!
Diane, George, and me at the BDB100 Expo.
Diane was helping at the BACA booth when I went to pick up my packet tonight. As I was heading out, George Hincapie walked in, escorted by local rider Hunter East. Of course, we had to grab a photo with George. I think George finished 17 Tours de France and always enjoyed the reputation of being a good guy in the peloton, a tireless worker. and a sound leader. The history of his era is still beng written, but I have always held Big George in high esteem.
