More News On Perras
We have a little more info on Dominique Perras' new pro team. It is, as previously stated, to be a second division team. The manager is the well-regarded former manager of the Swiss Poste team - Jean-Jacques Loup. Perras is the only North American, and the team consists mainly of neo-pros - similar to Dominique.
Editor's Note: it was interesting to see Dominique really blossom this spring (February) at the Tour of Langkawi in Malaysia. He held the Climbers Jersey for a while and, for the first time possibly, seemed to develop the confidence to believe that he really belonged at that level and could hold his own. (The real fun was on the last night when a group of us went into Kuala Lumpur, to the 'Night Markets', and then get semi-lost trying to find our way back the hotel (yours truly was driving...). But that's another story...)
We have already received many e-mails regarding the Cyclo-cross Nationals results. We have contacted the CCA/organizer, and hopefully they will looking into the results. Please contact either of them about results (ie, NOT us!). Alternately, you can hash it out on the Forums...
