2007 Ironman World Champion Chris "Macca" McCormack has been doing a little R and R in Las Vegas this past weekend relaxing at the Wynn Casino, and watching the Oscar Delahoya boxing match, and getting ready to run the Las Vegas Marathon," according to his blog.
BTW: We checked, but we could not find a result time for McCormack for the Las Vegas Marathon.
But before livin' the sports/rock star life he was in Hidden Hills in Los Angles "and getting some good riding done in the warmer weather here. I only have about a week left in the USA and it has been hectic. I have been frantically packing my stuff and cannot wait to get back home to Australia to be with my family again."
On his Blog McCormack writes:
"I recently snapped a photo of my two favorite modes of transport. My Specialized Tarmac SL2 Pro has been my training bike for the past month or so and I absolutely love it. I am riding Sram Red and it is so light and responsive. I am absolutely ecstatic with my set up at the moment and bouncing over the climbs here in the Santa Monica ranges has been an absolute pleasure on this bike.
The car pictured here is my close friends, Ferrari 360 Spider. Alongside it is my Specialized Tarmac SL2 Pro also in black. I have been clocking some solid miles on the Specialized and decided to give the Ferrari a run as well.
I gave the Spider a solid run up the canyons here in Malibu and it drove amazingly. Anyone who knows these canyons here would understand if their is any car that was built for driving here, it is the 360 Spider. It drives a treat and sticks to the road on the tight switchback turns like its on rails. It was cool to give it a hard run and hit the corners at solid speed. I loved every minute of it. I must admit the Specialized is a little cheaper mode of transport than the Ferrari but they both ride beautifully."
Editor's Note: Chris have you givin some thought to using Shimano's new cableless electronic shfters on your race bike? Just saying.....;-)
