Hi Christian,
Perhaps you remember me a little. It is not in may nature to write in to fan sites, as you can imagine, but I simply had to congratulate you and I don't know how else to reach you (though I have not tried before). I was one of your mechanics while you were with the US track squad in 96-97, and we also bumped in to eachother in 98 at the Cascade Classic and the Worlds in Valkenburg when I was with the women's team. It was fantastic to hear that you were able to take the Lux tour. It is too bad that you are not more recognized in this country, you have been riding well for you whole career and have track medals that other Americans will never see. You are always the guy I watch for. Anyway, I now run a German restaurant in San Francisco (Suppenküche in the Hayes Valley neighborhood). So if you are ever in the neighborhood I can promise a free meal for any group you bring, and all the (real) beer you can drink. We have been celebrating your win for a week. Please also say hi to Marissa and your Dad.
Thanks man,
Aaron Hulme
Also: It is a lot to expect, but if your team (whatever team) wants a great German meal next year at the Tour of California we would love to host you guys (staff especially).
