Preparation for the Flight

I enjoy cleaning my bike. Admittedly I have to force myself to do it most of the time. However, once I'm into it, I'm in the zone. I love how my hand glides through the top tube as I rinse it with water. I love how the cogset shines after I brush off all the grit and grime. And when everything's all lubed up and the frame's waxed up, the sight of it - all clean and shiny - takes my breath away. It's one of the joys that you just can't explain to someone who doesn't share the passion.

Discovery Channel signs Basso

I guess Discovery Channel doesn't want the feeling of being insecure, so not only did they sign Levi Leipheimer but Basso as well.

I don't know, but I really have this feeling that something's not right in the picture. Well, there's George, who's trained to be one of the leaders for the Tour. Then, Tom Danielson has proven that he has matured quite a bit so we'll be seeing him in the Tour as well. Now we put in the mix Levi and Ivan and we've got a team full of leaders.

Hmmmm. This is interesting. I guess we'll find out next year at the Champs Elysee.
