Cycling with celebrities, kinda

February 16, 2007


Upon arriving in Albuquerque, we were graced with slightly cooler weather than usual, I think it was kicking around the 5°C mark when we left the airport and headed to the Embassy Suites hotel overlooking the city.

A very nice hotel indeed and they really looked after us for the two week camp. The hotel was so shiny that even a few celebs had decided to stay there while shooting a movie somewhere around town. Charlize Theron, Susan Sarandon, Tommy Lee Jones and apparently Vin Diesel had all heard that Navigators and Team Lipton were down here for a training camp, so all wanted to do a movie that was shooting down here. Susan, or Susie as I like to call her, had also decided to come down and have breakfast with the stars (Navigators) one morning, so it was great catching up on old times with her that’s for sure!

Cool little entry from Glen Chadwick, a professional cyclist racing with National Insurance, a New Zealand based team. Check the rest of his post for his thoughts on the Hyatt Tamaya Resort and an icy gear grinding experience up the Sandias.

    Your response as El Orange – – was by far the most eloquent, articulate and, I believe, most accurate in this whole QBC-ABQ quagmire. You may have just kept us out of a war. Too bad. We could’ve won this one.
