I know, I know. Not road cycling but since we were celebrating the great Marianne Vos and more so because the women just don't get anywhere near the credit and limelight they deserve, I thought I'd add this.
Remember that prior to the Beijing Olympics Meares was involved in an accident and broke her neck. She was told she might never walk again let alone ride competitively. She slung a harness from her ceiling at home and trained in secret against her husband, her coaches and her doctors wishes. Then she went to Beijing and won a silver medal in the sprint.
Anna the indomitable!
Concentrate on the main business. You do that well. We as a community can add our own passions and loves to complement your main thing. That after all is the point is it not? It's a community. It's as good as those who are involved make it.
Much credit to you for making this something we can partake in.
