Tour of CT...(16 posts)

Tour of CT...jtferraro

Had a real cycling weekend, as I witnessed the New Haven Crit on Friday night, the Waterbury Circuit Race on Saturday, then the Housatonic Valley Classic on Sunday! I also got on the bike for 31 miles Saturday evening. =) Many, many, pics to come. Here are a few...

Overall winner - GC = David Klinger of Prime Alliance. Here he is, being interviewed by John Eustice. At the end of the Waterbury Circuit Race I was fortunate enough to exchange a few words, shake his hand, and get his autograph. I also discovered he had knee surgery this past Novemeber and sustained a bad crash in February. I think he's got my vote for my favorite, primarily domestic, pro racer! I also got autographs from two Saturn greats, Chris Horner and Ivan Dominguez (who, I think, won the PCT NYC Crit I was at last September).


P.S. "Fausto", nice meeting you!

I was discharged from physical therapy on the 5th of this month (after 6 weeks of 2-3 per week), starting 2 weeks post surgery. I went back to see my orthopedic surgeon later that day and he said my knee looks good, AND has tightened up a bit (which I was very pleased to hear). I don't go back to the doc for another 4 months, but still can't do any "side-to-side" knee movement sports (i.e. tennis, racquetball, soccer, basketball, football, skiing) for 4 more months = total of 6 post-op. It still doesn't feel 100%, but it is coming along...and biking has only been helping it.

Thanks for asking...

Hi Jeff,
Nice meeting you and your very pretty girlfriend. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello.

Couldn't have asked for a better weekend.
