My Boy.... "George"

Soooo sad for George this weekend at Paris Roubaix. He was one of the favorites for this race and Unfortunately there was a bad crash on thcobbles of Arenberg, which slashed the field, giving the breakway an assist. Next, George suffered some bad mechanical luck (and looong-a$$ wheel change) then met a series of attacks once he made back toward the front, the combination elminated the chance of a winning finish.

This guy is such an awesome teamate... he's put in his time. He deserves his moment in the sun. It bothers me that he's mentioned thinking of retirement, but I'm glad he feels he "can't go out like this." So there's another Roubaix for him next year, I think, and he has a great team around him.

He just trained so hard for this specific race, I can't imagine how frustrating it must feel.

Love this video of him...
