Team Potter the Illinois Division came back to Iowa this weekend. Maximus brought his new wheels, and we rode from Potterville to Alburnett. It was a beautiful cool summer evening. We had a great time with relatively flat riding.
When we returned home we cooked dinner on the grill, had a little wine, and dinner on the deck. It was a perfect evening, no humidity, cool and great company.
Thank you to Penutty and Maximus for making a wonderful weekend.
TEAM POTTER ROCKS!!!!
Well here we are, Team Potter: Illinois Division! We've been hitting pavement hard since Maximus' new road bike. We racked up 80 miles of flat Illinois terrain in two weeks. We're ramping up for some fitness while the summer is still hot and late evenings still have light. Thursday night we hit the tarmac for a speedy ride from Morton to Groveland and back. It was a calm evening and the traffic was minimal. One of us was moving much quicker than the other, but we managed to keep up the pace and make it back to the car just as the glorious sunset had its final hurrah. It feels good to hear those whirrs and clicks that only a bicycle can sing.
Well cycling fans, the 2008 Tour is already under way. As I am writing this, we have already completed three stages and with today's breakaway surviving, we have a new young American rider sitting in the third place spot. Click here to read more about Will Frischkorn of Team Garmin-Chipotle's amazing early breakaway that rocked the peloton and shook up what otherwise should have been a boring flat stage resulting in glory for the sprinters. To learn more about Team Garmin-Chipotle click here. Team Potter is geared up for this year's tour with plenty of cold beverage ready and our DVR's and Tivo's set to record. We won't be missing any of the action and neither should you. The GC is up for grabs...will your favorite win?
Whoo-hoo! Team Potter loves it when a new cyclist and bike join the Team Potter family. While Maximus was already an honorary member of Team Potter, he is now official with a shiny new set of wheels. Did I mention an all-carbon set of wheels?
The maiden voyage was a 13 mile trip on the Fondulac trail to Morton and back.
Kudos to Maximus!
Welcome to the new Team Potter Cycling page. We've decided to go all Blog for 2008 and beyond. We think this will give us all the best access to posting pictures, ride reports, and updates on what the team is up to. We hope all you loved about Team Potter before, you will still be able to find here.
