California - Day Four - Update on "anonymous pro"

Apparently the anonymous pro riding with Chris Horner is from the new BMC team. It might have been Ian McKissick as he was doing wind tunnel tests in San Diego.

Interestingly enough, I noticed on the one climb we were close to both that Horner wasn't moving his upper body a millimeter. The BMC racer though was rocking his shoulders and digging into the pedals on each stroke. I distinctly remember thinking "Boy, Horner is so much stronger than the other guy, no movement, no effort."

I'm glad I'm not racing those guys.

Oh and now the pro count is up to three.
