Tour de Georgia – looking at the teams

Well, the Tour de Georgia starts today, and unfortunately I can’t make it this year, but that won’t stop me from giving my opinions on the race. The course is very different to prevent last year’s results when a break went up the road, the field stopped chasing, and the GC was limited to the…

Sea Otter

And she was right. Mara Abbott won the prologue with the enigmatics Kat Carroll (Aarons) in second, and the amazing Kim in…
