Fighting Cancer With Bicycling

What an amazing dinner program put on by AEG and the Amgen Tour de California -- which offered a platform for the likes of Eddy Merckx and Greg LeMond to talk racing but also amazing speeches from people like current bike racer Jackie Crowell, who is fighting cancer.

In fact, the whole evening was inspiring, as the Amgen Tour o California paid tribute to 10 people fighting cancer (representing the event's 10 years) while also giving an award to bike racer Crowell, who participated in Thursday's time trial at Santa Ckarita's Magic Mountain after suffering brain cancer 16 months ago.

After the dinner, I enjoyed getting the chance to chat briefly with LeMond, the only American to win the Tour de France,
