On broken clavicle

The way everyone talked about broken collar bones I thought they might be kind of like a bad cold or some nasty road rash. Annoying, but not that big of a deal. The reality, however, is they are EXTREMELY inconvenient and sporadically eyepoppingly painful. Empathy and sympathy meters have been recalibrated.

More later. Marc's on his way to help me get my bike set up in the basement.

I'm not ready to give up on a solid performance at masters worlds. That might be the voice of inexperience with these types of injuries.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Nerd out with HTC & Google

Seems as if the technophiles are going to have to embrace HTC-Columbia during the TdF.

"I'm thrilled about the opportunity to leverage Google's My Tracks application to deliver real-time racing information to fans watching the Tour de France," explained former pro cyclist Dylan Casey, who is now a Product Manager at Google. "This is a unique, engaging way to help cycling fans all around the world get a sense of what the riders go through during each stage of the race and follow the performance of the world-class riders on Team HTC-Columbia. We're fortunate to work with such great partners - High Road Sports, HTC, SRM, and ANT+ - to make this possible."
