Ohhh… My legs are so heavy! This was my race yesterday. My teammate Hulick attacked and got the hole shot and gave me a good launching pad. I buried myself the first bunch of laps. I was leading the race and felt really good. In my head I figured “only Decker and Shannon could catch […]
I’ve got a good little block of training done this week and I am really, really happy for a day off the bike. Tuesday found me passing Tonkin on his way to work; me on my way out. A bunch of wheels strapped to his back. I was doing the same thing a few hours […]
A belated report on the scene in Philly. Saturday night Pete and I found out the hard way that the Christiana mall does not have a movie theatre anymore. We floored it from the race to the mall and dealt with all the insanity there only to realize, there is no theatre anymore. Wow, the […]
Sitting on the flight back to Portland from Philadelphia. This is the worst one yet. While waiting to board I avoided getting in line behind one of the “Others” from LOST. Complete with apparently crazy glue on beard, cut off blue jean short-shorts (a la Tobias Funke) and wild vacant look in his eyes. Yes, […]
I’ve been feeling the love, thanks. Pete and I are leaving tomorrow morning for Delaware via Philly. My mom’s funeral is on Friday and I am still planning on racing Saturday and Sunday unless I am totally wrecked. Not really sure how everything is going to work out after the funeral but, I don’t expect […]
My sister just called to let me know my mom passed away this morning. I am flying out to Delaware next Thursday for the Granogue race weekend and I’ll be staying longer to figure everything out. yeah. Thats where I’m at.
Gloucester Massachusetts was beautiful. If you have never been, I suggest you go. It is not the Grand Canyon or even as sweet as Mount Hood but on a perfect summer weekend, the picturesque New England fishing village teeming with heritage, an epic rocky coastline and beautiful classic homes made me want to stay longer. […]
Local badass Doug Ollerenshaw is racing in the Jayco Suntour right now. If you thought road racing was over for the season, think again. Serious, wish him luck!
Damn, that was the hardest racing I have ever done. I can’t wait till the weather gets crummier. These dry superfast races are so damn hard. Well, I finally had a good race. That is a load off the shoulders. I got all agressive at the start and did not care who I had to […]
All the UCI points and sweet start position for naught, a first lap crash found my bike and I buried under other riders. I ended up running to the pits and finishing up the race on the B bike with a borrowed rear wheel. I went from the 20′s to the 50′s fairly fast after […]
