How many of you remember the days when a pro racer's wife was banned from following their husband at a stage race? Phil Anderson's wife, Anne, even went so far as to disguise herself as a man in order to follow her husband at the 1981 Tour de France.
That's another era now, but I was reminded of it today while reading a diary entry on Bike World News. It's from Cassie Jones, wife of Team Type 1 racer Chris Jones. She writes about what it is like to follow her husband during the Amgen Tour of California.
