16th Place! It took me 15 years to get a top 20 in a ski racing World Cup. So, this is pretty dang exciting. I am psyched.
I kept waiting for "them" to go hard. When are they going to go hard? Is this it? Are they going? Oh ouch, it hurts. Maybe it didn't feel all that hard because I was actually patient and didn't ride on the front the entire race. One has more energy when they sit and let others pull them around for a while. Thanks Josh, James, Mike.
We are now back in Lucca and the SUN is out. It's wonderful.

Clothes waiting for me from last season.
Local coffee roaster.
Cold weather (double WHAT!?)
No luggage (Oh man!)
Arione saddle on the spare bike (ouch-ey)
Always seeing something new and interesting (old lady, bicycle, rack, cat in carrying case)
Nice "non-red neck" drivers

Here is the recap, in pictures, of our trip to Australia and New Zealand.
Team USA in front of our Geelong cabin. Preparing for our first "stay left" ride.
Along the ride, we found interesting merchandise for sale.
Of course, when in Australia, Kangaroo spotting is a must.
After Geelong, we flew to New Zealand. There, we raced a 5 day stage race in and around Wellington.
Team USA was treated to an amazing Team Presentation.
First, the teams were introduced.
Our first "Kiwi Crit" felt like home...
Then it was off to Team Colavita/Sutter Home women's profession cycling team presented by Cooking Light team camp (phew!). In the snow. Actually it was awesome. It was in Yosemite.
We got to ride our new Jamis' in and around the Valley floor.
El Capitan is on the left, and Half dome is in the back ground.

-Did you get writers block? There is nothing new on the blog for a long time now (The Sister).
-You are home now. That's means you have your camera's download cord, right? But, there's nothing on the blog about your trip (The Mom).
Man, where's the slack? :)
After I finish spending time with Turbo Tax, I promise to update the blog with wonderful pictures and (hopefully) funny words.
