Special Incentive: Sneak Peek #28

Welcome to Monday's sneak peek. Today's incentive gift is courtesy of veteran pro cyclist Michael Barry. From Toronto, Michael has been described as "...the most-storied, most-accomplished Canadian professional cyclist ever, short of Steve Bauer." He's ridden for US Postal, T-Mobile, Columbia/High-Road, and now for Team Sky, and he has donated to the journey home a signed Canadian National Team jersey from the 2009 World Championships in Mendrisio, Switzerland.

Also an accomplished writer, Michael has written two books, countless articles for bike publications and essays for the New York Times. Look for his latest book Le Métier. What is métier?  A trade, field or activity at which one excels; one's forte. He writes with a compassion about being a domestique, the unsung working class heroes of the peloton.
