"I said that I wanted to do it but that I would have to check with Preston, and I actually had a call into him. I told everybody I had a call into Preston.<BR><BR>"When he called me back, he said he doesn't want me to go ride around for 4 hours on a bike I'm not super familiar with, and have something happen that could hold me back for some testing that's coming up. It was a mutual agreement (not to do it)."
