Our guest for the week...

Around 7pm last night our guest, Alex Lagutin came to the door. Alex is the mechanic / masseur of the team. He is 23, from Uzbekistan, and has been in the U.S. for about 4 months. He like the rest of us is still in the dark about the organization of the team.

Thanks to Marilyn I found out that Alex's brother Sergey has won the Tour de Korea in 2008, was the Uzbekistan National Road Champion, and the World Road Race Champion (U-23). Sergey was also on Navigators 2007 Tour of California team.

San Diego Origins of the Team

Fly Vaustralia Presented by Successful Living has its origins right here in San Diego.
Before combining with its counterpart in Australia, Successful Living has be managed by local San Diegian Steve Hegg. This year Successful Living asked for help from North County Cycling Team Swamis to grow the team. The three way partnership of Vaustralia, Successful Living, and Swamis Cycling Club has enabled San Diego to have a local team riding the Tour of California.
Every San Diegian should be following and cheering Fly Vaustralia on Stage 8 of the Tour of California.
