Will Frischkorn goes to Le' Tour!!

Yesterday, Slipstream Sports ( rather Garmin-Chipotle) announced its Tour de France Team and it includes my friend and former West Virginian Will Frischkorn.

As the press release notes, Will is one of four Americans riding in Le Tour this year. I imagine this is the first West Virginian ever to ride in what is arguably the toughest endurance sporting event in the world.

I know Will reads this BLOG....from all your WV buddies Will....go get em'! What an honor.

Also, here is Will's BLOG. As noted, he'll be writing a daily journal for Velo News.

Also, see my March 22nd post.

Ohhh... how cool is that?? I've been needing some inspiration to watch the Tour now with Lance out of the picture.

BTW... I remember going to the Frischkorn house waaay back when to take some photos of the kids. One of them grew up to be a pro rider?

DP - Good talking with you today. Now I've got a reason to watch the Tour again. With all the doping scandals and what not, my tastes have been a bit soured when it comes to professional cycling. Seeing Will at the pinacle of the sport does my heart good.
