American triathlete and Kona local Bree Wee is spending time training with Lance Armstrong as he prepares to make his comeback to the sport of triathlon. Wee is coached by Jimmy Riccitello, a former Xterra world champion and Ironman’s current head referee. Riccitello is also a training partner of Armstrong.
See an excerpt from Wee’s blog below:
Coach, College, Lance, and crew let me roll with them on their 4hr hilly helly ride! Oh believe me, I was enduring a few moments of “kid in a candy store” since 6:30 that morning when I showed up at the Lance house. It was more normal of a lifestyle than I was envisioning the King of The Tour to have. I was awe struck.
