The Colombian armada set sail for Europe in 2013. They hit land in the shape of a boot in 2014. Congrats Nairo!
Man...totally bummed about Taylor Phinney breaking his leg at US Nationals. His win at ATOC was one of the coolest wins of the year for me. Equally bummed about Steve Tilford breaking his hip. Reminded of how dangerous the sport can be.
