Lisa found out yesterday morning that she will be racing this year's Tour de L'Aude. L'Aude is basically the Tour de France for women and Lisa will be lining up with last year's Olympic Champ, World Champ and basically all the top pro women in the world. Canada has a pretty decent history at L'Aude. Lynne Bessette (who is on Lisa's team) won in 2001 and 1999. Linda Jackson in 1997 and BC's Sara Neil was 3rd in 1989. Erinne Willock will also be racing for Canada.

That's fantastic Lisa! That part of France is absolutly beautiful. We rode some of it years ago...i'm very jealous...there are some HUGE climbs! I remember them pointing them out to us. I'm so excited for you! I hope you go to a town called Limoux! (I had been saving my bottle of wine from there since 2000....
Anyhow i'm really excited for you. I was checking your page to see if there was any other exciting news...i'll just have to be patient!
