I thought it only rained in England...?

Good day all,
Wow! 3 days and about 27 cups of coffee in and I'm starting to adjust. Jet lag is something I'm not totally used to but I think I'm doing a pretty decent job of handling it..No 4hr naps in the middle of the day and then up at 3 am. Productivity ratings for the first 2 days were at an all time high, Appt lease signed! Phone plan, check! Open bank account, Done! That was all before noon the first day here and now I'm already moving hotels... feels like the season is already underway....even managed to sneak in a roller session yesterday!

Office for the day
As I write this it would appear that all the stories I've been told about it raining all the time in England were completely false! I have yet to see a single drop of actual rain. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of rain, in fact some may even say I dislike rain...But SNOW, I despise snow! For winter sports, sure, fine, it's essential I suppose, but for spandex sports it proves to be a worthy appoint.
Yes, it's true, it is and has been snowing in Derby, for the last 36hrs or so actually. Ah well this inconvenience should only last a few more days, then we're off to Mallorca Spain for first pissing contest...err I mean, training camp of the year. I'm really looking forward to riding down there with all the guys.

We have our official team launch on Monday here at Raleigh HQ, I think that will more/less be the first time we will all be together in one place. I imagine after the presentation there will be a little bit of kissing hands and shaking babies, that sort of thing. We're kind of a big deal around here, Sure theres Wiggins and Sky but they're barely even around, so I guess we're like #2 to them? Something like that..

Alrighty, enjoy the pictures as I burn through a months worth of data in 3 days...What did people do before internet!?

Stay tuned

New friend.
