2007 Philadelphia International Championship…9

Aaron Olson
Finish: 107th

Just one week prior, Olson was duking it out for last place in the Giro d'Italia with Italian Oscar Gatto. If Olson was truly serious about the Maglia Nera he would have done a track stand at the Milan finish line, Downer Avenue style, until he lost all of the time he put into Gatto in the TT. Maybe next year.

I don't know how these guys get over their jet lag so quickly, never mind trying to recover from a Grand Tour to boot. Olson's a class act, and he even remembered posing with Pat McCarty for a photo I took prior to last year's Francavilla al Mare Giro stage.
