True team player, Eki is out

He took one for the Boss (my interpretation). Ekimov was injured by an automobile during a training ride w/ Lance near Austin. Lance is fine. Eki broke his sternum, out for six weeks, he'll probably miss the Tour. Won't surprise me if he retires, too.

HOT! Eki Hurt in Training Crash - 4/30/2005
DEVELOPING: Viatcheslav "Eki" Ekimov was injured in a training crash yesterday outside of Austin, TX. Eki was training with Lance - who did not crash nor is he injured at all - when he went down. Contrary to other reports, he was not hit by a car but taken down by a hole in the road while coming back to Lance. He lost control of his bike, hit the stem with his chest and landed on his back. We'll have a full team report ASAP once all the facts are known. More soon...

clearly the hole was caused by low tire pressure in a white minivan that was over loaded with Twinkies. The soft spot in the road could not endure that kind of pressure and gave way.

I hate the white minivan.

I've arranged for a white minivan to be at the start of next week's CCTT. That ought to give you some agressive motivation to race.

Help will come from the minivan for Dirt if you can get it to chase him! He's quite courageous, ya know....Dirt's Mom

How about a fleet of strategically placed white minivans that will rev the engine just as he flies by? If nothing else, his heartrate should be up there...

Go Dirt, go.
