Saul Raisin aiming for US Pro return

VeloNews | Raisin Hope: Counting my blessings

Saul Raisin, the Credit Agricole rider who suffered brain injuries last year at the Circuit de la Sarthe, is training competitively again.

Raisin did a baseline time trial up Fort Mountain, near Dalton, Georgia, last Wednesday, and averaged about 400 watts for 30 minutes. He followed that up with 6 15-minute hill repeats on Friday.

Raisin told his coach he hopes to return in September:

"I want to come back for the U.S. professional championships," I told Jim. "And I want to come back in a big way. I want to win."

Raisin's “Raisin Hope” ride is scheduled for March 31 in Dalton, and there's also a silent auction of items through eBay including a number of signed team jerseys (from Discovery, Team CSC, Cofidis, and Credit Agricole) and a Look 585 team bike.
