Team Garmin: Timmy Duggan packs for Oz
As the pro cyclists of Team Garmin-Slipstream prepare for the Tour Down Under and Tour de Langkawi, Cyclingnews talks to Christian Vande Velde about his transition from super domestique to team leader, and Boulder native Timmy Duggan (left) brings us up to speed in a Team Garmin blog post:
Packing for a month and a half in a different hemisphere seemed like a daunting way to start my season last week. But after 10 months of no racing, I was actually excited to lug out the suitcase and get ready to hit the road. I didn’t really pack until the day I left for the Tour Down Under and Tour de Langkawi. The two days before, I was crazy balancing training and recovery with tying up loose ends in preparation for leaving Colorado for the rest of the season. I refinanced our mortgage, caught up with some friends I won’t see for a while, made a bunch of food for the freezer for my wife to live off of the next six weeks, paid the bills, accidently crushed my Blackberry in the car door…and then started packing.
Thankfully all the races on this trip are in the summer heat and a far cry from the snow, cold and wind of my Colorado home! So that was a good start; I didn’t have to pack a pile of warm clothes. The other plus was that most of the 09 Garmin-Slipstream clothing was waiting for me in Oz. So I didn’t pack much in the way of riding clothes. Hopefully it’s all there or it will be a long month in a single pair of bike shorts!
