After California was battered by wet, wind and colder-than-normal weather, some had doubts that the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling team would be holding its scheduled training camp in Solvang, California, this week.
Doubts? Why most of these guys used to ride for a sponsor whose motto was “Neither rain, nor snow nor…”
Well, the weather has cleared and even though it’s still chillier than usual, most of the Discovery team is in Solvang working out the post-holiday kinks and getting ready for a full season of racing as a part of the UCI’s new ProTour.
Photographer Casey Gibson is in Solvang and he sent along a few shots of early season life on one of the world’s top teams.
