Stage Race+

Ok so I rounded out the stage race race with a 1-1-2 finish. Felt pretty good but still lacking. After that it was in the car and off to So-Cal. Spent 3 days down there with no bike but did have a nice night on the beach at sunset where I proposed to my girlfriend. She had no idea. Good way to spend the weekend without a bike. Boca 1-day championship tonight. Won't try to win since I got mine already but will try to help a buddy win it if I can.

Keep on rollin

So Suisun didn't hurt as bad as I though. JD, Joe and I were very active from the gun making moves but nothing worked. A break finally went clear but without us in it. We chased but Webcor had a lot of guys and kept disrupting the chase sitting second or third wheel. A lot of work for nothing but good to get racing again.

Yesterday started the Twilight stage race here in Reno. The first stage was a 7.75m time trial out in Washoe. Great conditions made for some fast times and I was able to set a new best time for the course by 24 seconds but still about 20 watts lower than I'd like for the effort. Tonight is a road race out at boca and a crit tomorrow. After that it is in the car and down to so-cal for the weekend to visit some of Megan's family for a party and a quick turn around drive back. 16 hours of driving in 50 hours. Suck.

What's that thing over in the corner?

So it's been 8 weeks since my last race and this is all i"ve done:

Work has been crazy busy which is a good thing(need Heating or Air done? Climate Master or Facebook) but finally I can look at teh bike again. My form has regressed to Mid-December but what ever will be will be. Suisun crit this weekend for a whole lot o suffering.
