History is re-written

In the short but triumphant history of Team Dai, the morning of Thursday January 29, 2009 will be remembered as the day that more riders than the combined last 50 years of the Tour de France took the road in preparation for the March 2009 ride to Luang Prabang.

18 riders braved the brisk morning air and 6am start to assemble and then ride off into the creeping dawn on their regular 25km training loop. Mr Wil, who was not in attendance due to Nina-sitting duties was overheard later that evening saying, "Damn! Another piece of history gone by without me!"

Some of the history makers are pictured below, about to celebrate the event with a steaming mug of Joma's finest bean.
