Livestrongs U-23's 2011 Season Kicks Off!

this is very exciting for each of these young men and then also for some of us on the East Coast or more specifically some of us in the Mid-Atlantic
local kid Joe Dombrowski of Haymarket Cycles has been called up race with the U-23 Livestrong team

well... maybe not "wow" as it is not much of a surprise
this kid has talent... insane talent

talent... drive... and a great attitude

so far it looks like an amazing experience
these kids look like they are living their dreams

they show up and get fitted on these totally trick Trek Madone bikes
their race director is Axel Merckx
then what... they go for a spin what looks like the owner of Mellow Johnny's!
and that may have been day one

what does the future hold for these young racers?
