THE PERSON

Although Laurent Fignon (above left) is our favorite rider; we are looking more for the temperament displayed in young LeMond (above right).  M. Fignon was brilliant and exciting, he was also temperamental and vain.

LeMond smiled through a lot of adversity, and let’s not forget who won in ’89.

Look, we understand that the list above is pretty long, and very varied, and don’t expect one person to be experienced in all.  That’s where the Old School Work Ethic kicks in.

Send a short statement of why you want the job along with C.V. to [email protected]

*** HELPFUL TIP: please go down the list above and report back ***

On November 21, 2017, I saw a TV news story about how the Broomfield District Attorney’s Office was routinely offering lax plea deals to drivers that injure cyclists.  In bicycle crash cases with injuries, the DA was offering plead deals to “broken headlight” or “defective vehicle” charges. A “defective vehicle” sentence is one of the […]
