Heinrich Haussler for the Win

In the spring semester last year, Harry Chen introduced a bunch of us to the Cervelo Test Team. We were addicted to watching their fantastically produced videos, and began to follow the team with great intensity. I was in love with the sport of cycling, but after watching Cervelo's documentary's I was beyond enamored.

While Scott grew fond of Thor for his large stature, I was wooed by the adorable monologue given by Heinrich in part two of their 2009 Tour de France documentary. Despite being rejected by him on facebook, we continued to follow his progress (or misfortune) throughout this summer. This summer, Heinrich suffered a knee injury as well as a series of crashes that put him out of the tour. Cervelo test team has merged with Garmin to create the Garmin-Cervelo team, but they can still be followed at cervelo.com.

Apparently, Heinrich has recovered well from his knee injury and misfortune with crashes.
Harry Chen brought to my attention that Heinrich won the second stage of the Tour de Quatar to take the overal lead from Tom Boonen. Check out the article and results here.

I just wanted to share some inspiration, from one cyclist to another. So read the articles and get watching the Cervelo documentaries for a glimpse into the life of professional cyclists. And for all my cyclist ladies, check out the Varganda World Cup videos of Cervelo's female team.
