Without other calves against which to compare, this pair of calves looks rather ordinary but in truth, had Jeff S flexed, the explosion of muscular mass would have required a wide angle lens to capture.
While crawling around the parking lot looking for interesting images, I came across this interesting pair of socks, worn by Craig Butler, The Boss.
The lone figure is Dennis, who spent the week in Chicago eating and drinking way too much. Dennis and I were team mates on Savage Hill racing team but because he was first string, he gets to still wear the jersey. Because I was third string, I am not allowed to wear the jersey so mine sits in mothballs.
Ginger Update--Several people have inquired about Ginger and the standard reply has been, since she is racing she doesn't have time for us. Not true. Out of respect for her privacy, all I should say is, May was a tough month, leading up to a scheduled surgery, which went well last week. Ginger will be laid up for awhile but expects to rejoin the peloton this fall. Send her an email to cheer her.
Way ahead of the start, a few of the cyclists are nevertheless ready to go, including Jeff S on the right, Craig (the Boss) behind and to his right, Nathan (recumbent dude) in the foreground and the guy yapping to his left is George. Between them is Andrew, still recovering from a triathlon.
