A fantastic year in review! I realize that February is already well into 2012, and most people are finished refecting on the past year, but I say "better late than never." 2011 was an exciting, overwhelming, and all-around fantastic year! I have to admit that I welcomed 2012 with a little sadness as I did not want 2011 to end.
I am honored to share some of the highlights with you and tell my story of the best year ever!
Ok, this really begins at the end of June, but let's just file it under July. Tejay (van Garderen) had been selected to race the Tour de France for his HTC-Highroad team, which was an accomplishment in itself. But the most exciting part was that he was arriving to France an engaged man! Yes, just days before Tejay left for the Tour, he proposed, and needless to say I didn't have to think twice before I accepted!
