FBD Insurance Rás — Stages 8 Final — Jet Fuel Report

May 29, 2005 — Eight days, eight stages and it ended today in Dublin with the type of race we’re pretty used to – a criterium. Mind you this criterium had 156 guys in it – 156 left after 193 started last Sunday.

Well, once again the final result eluded us, but we’re pretty happy with this Rás all in all. We rode an aggressive race, gelled as a team and we’ve had a productive trip to Europe. We’ve done nine days of world class UCI racing and had 13 days racing in total in the last three and a half weeks. We met the ‘legend’ Sean Kelly, and we got to ride through the ‘heartland’ of cycling in Belgium for a while. That’s all pretty cool.
