Birthday week off to a good start!
Here I am with Danny "The Pate" Pate, former U23 ITT World Champion, 5 (!) time podium finisher at USPRO Championships, multiple grand tour veteran, Tour of California most aggressive rider, stage winner at Tour of Missouri, third in a Tour de France stage, and generally the guy who can ALWAYS be counted on to attack. One of the classiest riders around. He was genuinely thrilled to find someone wearing a t-shirt with his picture on it. (By the way, I weighed myself yesterday and I can assure you I'm not quite as fat as I look in this picture.)
