After a long month of traveling, I'm happy to be back home in Durango. My adventures lead me first to the Tour de Georgia. Tom put in a great race, proving that he has improved his time trialing skills and is ready for all his upcoming races.

After the Tour de Georgia , Tom and I traveled to Italy where we met up with one of the Discovery Team directors, Sean Yates. We spent a week driving up and down the incredible switchback roads that are precisely situated among the Dolomite mountain range. When we approached a climb that had been designated apart of the Giro course Tom jumped out and off he went. Tom made the steep grades look easy as he pedaled a fast cadence and was barely breathing. Any other person would have been all over their bike just to get up the extreme roads.

I have to say Italy quickly became one of my favorite places in Europe. The small mountain towns were so beautiful and quaint. The roads among the mountains are so incredible. I can't get over how they even managed to build them. Or the towns for that matter.
