A Glimpse Of The 2010 Road Race Season

Filed under: Race Schedule — admin @ 4:30 pm

I’m learning a little bit day by day on my up and coming schedule for the racing calendar. First off is a training camp in Valencia, Spain, from January 15th to February 1st. Right after that, I fly to the Tour of Qatar and then the new Tour of Oman, two races in the Middle East. What a change of scenery that will be – from Belgium and French races in the rainy, windy cow-dropping-covered roads, to camels, sand storms and hot weather.

Steven’s End of the 2009 Road Race Season Schedule

Filed under: Race Schedule — admin @ 12:04 am

August 2, 2009, Tour of Poland, Pro Tour
August 16, 2009, Vattenfall Classic, Hamburg, Germany, Pro Tour
August 18-19, Eneco Tour, Belgium, The Netherlands, Pro Tour
August 29-30, USA Nationals

September 13-20, Tour of Missouri

Steven concluded his racing season for 2009 with the Tour of Missouri. He was very happy that he could end the season helping “DZ” win the Yellow Jersey.

Steven’s season ended disappointingly early because of a digestive problem he had been battling all season (refer to On The Road Again – “Racing Wounded”). 

Steven is now working closely with his coach and nutritionist to help heal his digestive track.  He is looking forward to training on the bike again and to a great 2010 Pro Tour Season for his  Garmin Slipstream Teammates and himself.

Steven wrote, “Thanks to all my fans and the fans of the sport of professional cycling. Your support is what keeps us cyclists going when we are suffering out there on the bike – over a mountain,  in the last km’s of a individual time trial,  chasing down attacks, or spending the entire day in a break fighting to the end not to get caught. I was in plenty of those this season!  I also want to thank my Race for Kids Fan Club members for joining my fan club and supporting children in need throughout the world through your generous donations! See you all in 2010, for now ciao!!!”
