Dispatch: Travels of Team Vitesse
A recent dispatch from those intrepid members of Team Vitesse on their training ride from hell was received recently. It seems that since seeing two of the seven Wonders of the World, they find themselves trying to secure a water pump for the Winnebago. The Winnebago houses the heart and soul centre of Team Vitesse. The markets and bazaars of the Ottoman Empire have the reputation of having everything but apparently no water pump. The team's cycling equipment has performed marvellously on the gravel roads and goat paths of the Caucasus foothills. "There is no better training for Paris Roubaix than riding a road bike on rocky sheep paths" Johan is quoted as saying. The team remains hopeful of gaining safe passage across the windswept steppes under the watchful eye of a perfidious Mongol horde. Join me in wishing them godspeed.
