As of 1st January, I am officially a member of UCI Trade Team Pruneaux D'Agen. They are located in the Agen (SW) region of France and are sponsored by a Prune growing company - perfect for a staunch VEGAN!!! Yipee!!! Wait till you see the clothes - prunes everywhere!! They will sponsor me for both road and cyclo-cross seasons.
My last cyclo-cross race is 18 February (if i skip the team presentation the same day) and directly from the race, I will take the train ten hours to Agen for team training camp 19-25 February. I think ten hours is enough of a coach-enforced "break after cyclo-cross season." oops. Maybe next year I will take that coveted break.
