This is my world of cycling and just a fun way for me to share my experiences, thoughts and joy I have for cycling. Thanks for visiting Cycle Jabber and good luck in your training! Dirk Friel

Tour of GA is finally here. Can Danielson take top honors again? I hope so. That kid is the real deal and I hope this is a step towards a podium spot in a grande tour some year.

I also want to wish Henk Vogels good luck. He was 10th in stage 1 and helped Freddie R. Get 2nd. Henk is the ultimate teammate and if you aren't careful he'll win the race all by himself. Did anyone out there see Henk in the Tour of Flander's coverage on OLN a few weeks ago? He could barely make it up the Koppenberg climb because his ankle hurt so much. Henk crashed a few seasons ago while riding for the Navigators and the crash almost ended his career. If it was anyone else in that situation it probably would have, but Henk is the hardest toughest guy I know in cycling. That guy can suffer like no one else.
