Epilog - Fly V Australia / Successful Living TofC

At the guy from Fly V Australia that finished the race, I thought you would like to hear Ben Day's last observations of the Tour of California

....It was a tough opening for this fledgling team, but already there is talk about the future, about how mistakes will be corrected and how missed opportunities will be grasped. Team Fly V Australia will fight on and will be representing again very soon.

All in all, we had a fairly successful tour taking into consideration our limited preparation.

The highlights were a few days in good breakaways with Dave Kemp and Curtis Gunn and two top 10 finishes for Bernie Sulzberger, we will only go up from here.

I am really excited about this project. In such a short space of time, the boys were able to receive the invite to California and now that that has been achieved, all the resources will be put into pushing the team towards some lofty goals....

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.
