It's time for the Nature Valley Grand Prix again, the premier pro stage race in the Midwest. Salsa is happy to have the TDS-Schwalbe pro women's team in town again this year as they battle it out for glory. In fact, they are in Mankato, Minnesota as I write this for a tough, hilly 86 mile road race. Stage Two in Mankato will take them up and down the bluffs of the Minnesota River Valley in the heart of Jolly Green Giant country.
It's always fun having the girls in town and getting the chance to watch the best riders in the country compete in our frontyard. Tomorrow is the downtown Minneapolis Criterium and Chuck, Bobby, myself, and a crew of miscreants will be cheering 'em on from the corners. If you're in Minneapolis, come on down to Brit's Pub on Nicollet Mall for a prime seat to watch the race. Fish and Chips, Newcastle on tap, lawn bowling on the roof, and an 8-corner crit. Can't be beat.
