Kevin Field's Report from the UCI Gala
Svein and I had a pretty quick trip to Italy this past weekend. We travelled there the day of the event, so as you can imagine, we were both tired from the travel once we got there.
Upon arriving from the airport, Svein took a nap and I went out to get our shoes shined and take a walk of Como. Svein ended up waking up just in time to watch the end of the Tour of Lombardy on TV.
The UCI Gala was held at the Chateau Erba, a beautiful palace just 5 minutes walk from our hotel. We arrived a bit early and hung around, but we didn't recognize anyone at first. We had a drink and waited - Chris Horner showed up and we chatted with him awhile. The continental awards were given out first - and Svein was called to the stage to speak about his year, his highlights, and so on.
