  1. Always your source for locally biased news – I'm happy to report that Seattle area young rider Tyler
    Farrar gets a ride with Jelly Belly this year. Here's hoping he does well and sticks after a short
    stint with the ill-fated Mercury dev team. Good luck Tyler. -a

    Jelly Belly dumped some riders, I guess thats pretty normal, but where do all the division 3 riders
    who suck or can't find teams end up? Sierra Nevada has many names I've never even seen before, and
    then they dump Gragus, Gerlach, and other experienced riders. Andy Crater needs a team, what's up
    with that? I was looking at cycling4all and you could put together a really good team from all those
    guys that have no team - better than most of the other
    div. 3 teams. Is it just cheaper to sign unknown riders? Better attitudes?

    So here is my idea, RBR posters all donate $100 for an ITEAMNOVA type deal, then put together a
    team of all these poor unsigned riders, get Dylan Casey, maybe dig up Marty Jemison, some of those
    Noble House guys, Crater, Gerlach/Gragus/Gaggiolli, Dirk Friel for sure, throw in an Andrew
    Randall, Derek Wilkerson, Dave McCook for the sprints and crashes, Chris Fisher, Harm Jansen for
    Superweek, Frank McCormack for cross, and finally Soren Peterson for that Scandanavian flava. Now
    that's a cycling team.

    The only problems with having Gragus, Gerlach, and Crater on your team is that you have Gragus,
    Gerlach, and Crater on your team......... -----Sharon Peters Personal Trainer to the Stars--------

    around at the races.
