Well, wet roads and possible showers are no good for a team practice focusing on lead-outs and sprinting. We will wait for dry roads to work on those skills.
An insurance representative wanted to meet me and my bike at the shop for an appraisal today. I was worried they would be tightfisted and reluctant to replace the bike. When he asked if the cracked carbon fiber frame could be repaired I knew things would be ok. Especially when the follow-up question was, "so that bike is not safe to ride?".
Good luck to everyone going to Palmer.
