I hope Robbie Ventura and Kenny Labbe get to ride in the tour this year. They have earned it by working hard the past couple of years.
Absolutely 100%...Wayne

no way in the world will either of these guys ride in the tour. I don't believe either of them even race in Europe and I don't think Kenny Labbe is even really a full-time pro. Isn't he a postal worker, albeit a really good cyclist, who rides some of the domestic races? Anyway, neither of these guys are listed on the tour riders pre-selection. You don't take a couple of guys who are used to playing in the minor leagues to the World Series when you have alot top-notch guys already on the roster.

...both of these guys are very friendly and represent the U.S. Postal Service very well. I was at the Clarendon Cup a couple of weeks ago, and I bumped into them while milling about in the crowd. A nice bunch of guys.

the last time I talked to Kenny on our group ride, he said he was just going to be doing U.S. races this year.

You get to ride with him? That is so cool! Got any good stories?

Yeah, whenever he's home, he shows up for our Saturday group ride.

No "stories" really. Just the fact that when he puts the hammer down, it's pretty much no contest.
What's your group Greg?Alex-in-Evanston

I see those guys around quite a bit. Robbie was doing the Alberto's cross ride in the fall (lots of our riders are Vision Quest members). Kenny I see at the track.

Just curious,

He is one of the best thirdbasemen playing today. Just strange to see him in pinstripes. Go Mets.
