I wanted to write a blog about the demise of HighRoad, but it’s too depressing. Whatever you may think of Bob Stapleton (and certainly I have some positive and some negative thoughts), I’ll remind you of two things:
- He was and is a huge supporter of women’s cycling. Even now that the team will fold, he’ll find a way to keep the women’s program going. I’m sure of it.
- He took a team that had become a mess in the public eye and turned it into an exciting team with lots of antics on the road and very few off it.
Maybe next week I’ll muster the energy to go into the lessons learned. For now, I hope you all enjoy a good ride on the weekend.
