Danish mountainbiking.... Hehe.

Fun story, nevertheless! ;-)

Not a current pro, but the road club I used to ride with has Graeme Obree as a member and I have been lucky enough to ride with him a few times over the years. Great guy to talk to, and just an all round nice guy!

Come to think of it, Hincapie was neither formally announced nor wore a race number so his participation was pretty incognito. More pics of the GF:

Riding with Mario in Miami is no big thing....now if you would've been partying with Cipo in South Beach, those pics would be worth posting ;)

Didn't ride w/ him, but only race I've ever won (in my glorious 3 year career so far) I got my flowers from a certain Spartacus.

I dont think I have ever seen someone roll up their long sleeve jersey, I need to remember that one. I used to have one cut off at the elbow.

A friend and I took Jeremy Powers on a nice wet training ride in between Czech CX world cups this year, after chatting briefly before his race in Tabor.
An almost unbelievably friendly guy. Thanking us profusely for a nice guided scenic fall ride from his hotel in Prague.
And even rolled back to chat with me while I was creeping up the last couple of head-windy climbs of the day, and complimenting my friend on being such a strong rider.
Very cool.

Forgot about riding with Powers, did a cross camp with him in Cincinnati this fall. Hung out and chatted with him quite a bit. Super cool down to earth guy.

I rode with Ted King and Jim Ochowicz this morning. No photos I'm afraid. Was a fast group ride.

Ha! No. I didn't know who the older guy riding next to me in the full BMC kit on the BMC TeamMachine was at the time. Asked him if he was a super fan of BMC or somehow involved in the team. Told me he was the co-owner and manager. Whoops.

Dude is still damn strong on the bike.
