One of our own is in Patagonia

Every cyclist in this area is familiar with Rob D. He's won numerous BAR championships over the past several years but he started his cycling career off road by racing mountain bikes. Over the past couple of years he's gone back to the off road world but in the form of adventure racing. Apparently he's done so well at it that he was invited to join a team for a 600km, 9 day event at the end of the world in Patagonia!

He flew out on Friday and the race is due to get underway tomorrow. You can follow his teams progress and listen to audio blogs here:

For more info on the event check out the official website here:

Take a few minutes to leave Rob and his team mates, two of which are also from Virginia Beach, some words of encouragement.

Hey, I did not know that Joel was on his team. I used to work with his wife and we took a grad class together. They are awesome people.

Thanks for the links so that I can get up to speed.
