First time poster here but I have followed this thread and you are one of the riders I follow and root for during the race.
Given that you have some time and the desire to generate some money, I wondered if you have thought about reaching that goal through speaking engagements, similar to what Lois Pryce has done. Your writing is entertaining and informative so I have to assume that would carry over to in person. Just a thought.
Anyway, the best of luck to you on both endeavors!
