IT MAY BE SPRING, BUT...
Riders contesting Milan-San Remo weren't the only ones dealing with the snow and wintry conditions this weekend. Kim Geist Coaching athletes raced in the snow and sleet at the Philly Phlyer and Strasburg Road Race in PA on Saturday. That didn't stand in the way of some top-5 and top-10 finishes, though. The lucky athletes were enjoying the warmth and sunshine elsewhere like at the Tucson Bicycle Classic in AZ, the GNCC General in GA, and at training camp in Spain.
