This past weekend is going to be the highlight of the year for me. I was invited to spend a little bit of time with the Cannondale folks up at Big Bear. The Amgen Tour of California was coming to Big Bear for Stage 6. We stayed at Edgewood Mansion the place you might remember from my Cannondale CAAD 10 review back in October of 2010. As always I enjoy hanging out with the Cannondale reps and their supporting cast of traveling demo truck and personnel. They are really fun people who I have become friends with and not just business partners.
But the highlight highlight (yes twice) was riding with two professional cyclists from the Liquigas pro cycling team. The riders were Alan Maragoni (Left) and Stefano Agostini (Right). Of course we were all riding our Cannondale EVO bikes. Here are a few pictures.

Wow, that picture of you and Peter should be a shop wall picture after the great tour of CA he had. Must of been a real thrill to ride with the pro’s. I did descend with a few on stage 7 and was told I ride like a pro on the downhill (to bad I couldn’t do the same on the uphill). I never got passed all the way down.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
