Team Radio Shack does not seem to have the energy that they had last year. They seem to be missing the spark Armstrong brought to the team. This year they have been having a hard time keeping their guys in the race. Johan Bruyneel is their director and he has won many tours, but this one will be a rebuilding year for him and the team. Times are hard this tour but I don't see them giving up. I see them staying the coarse no matter how few riders they have.
Lord, we pray for team Radio Shack today. We bring before you each member of this team not just the riders in the race today, but all the riders on this team. We think of all the coaches, medical team members, mechanics, IT guys, cooks, bus drivers and everyone else that is involved in making this machine go. It is amazing how many people it takes to move these guys down the road. We pray that you will encourage them as the press on. This year has happened for a reason and we pray they will learn the lessons they need to learn. We pray that one of those lessons is learning to trust You. We pray all these things in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.
