Ben Spangler August 5, 2016 Peek into the Life of an Amateur Bike Racer IV Ben Spangler August 5, 2016 Team rides are always the best. Store stop on team ride. Beer can chicken and veggies on the Green Egg. Finally over 100 degrees - summer is here! Picking up my son from daycare - bike racer stylz. Mmmmm curried steamed veggies and rice. Uuuuugh, even when you know the break is going to get caught, it always breaks my heart a little bit. Dirty commute. I'm half French, which means dinner at my parents often enough starts with pâté and cornichons. The SUV is the family car, so the sedan is now my getting to races car. BREAK THAT BIKE DOWN!!! Post race small skillet pizza! Awards shelf at the office. When Froome attacked on a flat, windy stage and took time on his rivals, he won me over. BLING. Love clean drivetrains. Evening before race day - everything ready to go. Morning of a race - been really digging this cereal from Trader Joes. To a fault. Standard race fare for me. Mmmmmmm mustard greens and white beans ....... Love the Adobe Tour Tracker - been enjoying watching the USA teams battling it out for the Tour of Utah.
