They were promoting the Saturn race in Colorado, and deomstrating some cross between a trainer and a video game, where you have a video screen with a cyclist on it and it and the trainer simulate a race. Looked kind of neat.

I was getting an oil change and caught part of it in the lobby. Lemond was talking about his sponsorship of the Saturn cycling team and some new training software (I think it was called cyber bike) that lets you compete in real time with other cyclists on trainers.

Yeah, I saw it as I was eating breakfast (ain't unemployment great???).

When did Greg get so gray??? He still looks fit, but he's making me feel old.

The software he was demo'ing looked very cool -- told my wife she could get me that for Xmas (especially if it came with one of those nice Lemond road bikes they were using on the show).

The Todays how reporter "beat" Greg in their "race" -- yeah, right. It was funny, though, that it was obvious Lemond was not even trying, but the reporter was completely out of breath after the one or two minutes that they pedaled.
