Podium!



I love this picture, it has it all - bags of money, smiling Olympic officials, and Mike Hemme rocking his first podium for COURAGE. Hemme's blog doesn't get into the exciting details of the race (he's too modest), and while I wasn't there I did get a couple of phone calls from people giving me the story as it unfolded. Here are the two main details: he almost lapped the field competing for a $20 preem and he won the thing in a sprint. I think if John Vande Velde had added a six pack of Bells to the $20 offer Mike would have made it all the way around...

And something of a dedication to a beautiful effort:
