Johan's Happy

OK, so I'll write our 500th post since the Triple started cranking about one year ago.

How about that?!

Also celebrating:
With two victories in arguably the biggest stage races of the season to date -- the Tour of California and Paris-Nice -- the Discovery Channel team may actually find a new sponsor for 2008. Unfortunately, it won't be Triple Crankset.

Director Sportif Johan Bruyneel must be pleased with the post-OBL era. "We have new riders, new goals and new objectives and I could not be happier with the how the guys have performed so far. The Tour of California and Paris-Nice wins were a direct result of our guys riding as a team behind their leader," Bruyneel said of victories for Levi Leipheimer and Alberto Contador (picture by Graham Watson).

"Alberto pointing at the Discovery Channel on his jersey was his way of thanking his teammates and showing how happy he is on this team," Bruyneel said. "This was a tremendous win for our entire organization. Winning races can only help us as we look to solidify a new title sponsor for 2008."

Granny, you've heard more than I have about a sponsor. I was hoping that Mike's restaurant, Bilbo Baggins, might pick up the contract!
Seriously, though, thanks to bdleaf for being a loyal reader and writer ... :)

Not really, I'm pretty happy with what you guys have.

I do like the idea of Katie's Korner though. Without violating the integrity of your blog, maybe you guys could do similar limited feature series (how-to's, training goals, or a cycling term-of-the-week) with some sort of regularity.

Honestly though, I don't think you guys need any more, unless you're looking to start your own magazine, heh.
