Tour of Utah - Stage 3

For stage 3, I once again had the opportunity to ride in a team car. This year, it was the Bissell Pro Cycling Team that had an open seat, and agreed to let me tag along with them.

My ride for the day.

Sometimes, if a rider has a mechanical problem, the team mechanic will fix it while they are still rolling.

August 8th was Axel Merckx's (Eddy's son, and Director Sportif of the Bontrager Livestrong Development Team) 40th birthday. They announced it over the race radio, and we had to pull up to his car and wish him a happy birthday. 

A huge thank you to Bissell Pro Cycling, the DS, Omer Kem, their mechanic, Bill, and the rest of the team for letting me ride along with them for the stage.
