Laptops, espresso, cyclocross.

Wow. I am still recovering from last weekend. Have not even unpacked from our race on Saturday. Still got boxes of stuff littering the floor of the shop. I am super stressed out! The promotion of our first cyclocross race went flawlessly. 270+ racers in attendance and almost no problems. There were a few missed […]

My laptop died.

So, my laptop died. I’ll get it back in a few days, the hard drive is dead. All my data on it is gone. That means I’ll have a lot of work to do when I get it back. Ugh. We promoted our cyclocross race this Saturday and then Brian Ellin and I raced in […]

Woke up to my name in print:

Just Out did an article about queers and bikes. If you are local, take a read. I certainly got a little mis-quoted but, I have come to expect that with all the recent publicity. If I really am working 10+ hours a day and training 4+ hours a day, I’ll go with it. heh heh… […]

What happens in Eugene stays in Eugene, bro.

Rode the time trial of my life, catching my 30 second and 1 minute rider in the first few miles before getting off course and adding 10 minutes to my time… Ugh. Long story short, I really hurt myself in the TT and easily did a top 5 ride. The officials adjusted my time but, […]

ouch.

Pulled my Achilles tendon at the Sellwood cyclocross practice this morning. Jamming up the runup. Getting a massage tonight from Molly Carlson in anticipation of the final road stage race of the year, the Eugene Celebration. The cross season is coming up so quickly, got to get all these race wheels built before our race […]

29years, 29er wheels.

I finally bought an Ipod, used, for about $100 from some jerk. It is a piece of crap, has like a 1 hour battery life. Oh well, I’m going to sell it today and just buy a new one. There you go. I guess it is about $60 to get a new battery installed. Maybe […]

Scotty Graham memorial XC race:

My first Elite XC win of the season! And my last, seeing as the season is over. My expert class teammates Patrick and Steven took silver and bronze respectively while I snagged the gold medal and the cash! I did not have a great feeling about the race beforehand. Had a stomach ache but, decided […]

Geez!

Yesterday was the “I have an intense personality and I am going to try and ruin your day” day. I was in high spirits all day and had to deal with too many customers! Too many! The guy who got up in Keely’s face while she was building a wheel, the guy who insisted on […]

Vanilla cyclocross bikes…

…are amazing. Truly. I still don’t have any components to get them built up so I dug around upstairs, pulled some trashy wheels out of the recycling and banged them back into shape and got the A bike running. Just in time to ride out to the cross practice at Alpenrose Velodrome (good job Craig […]

12 hours of Wilamette pass:

After getting trounced by Santiam cycles (Evan Plews, teammate) and, the Bike Gallery team (Matt Slaven, Brian Wilson.) in the 2 person elite category, I am back in Portland enjoying a soy mocha. All quiet in the shop, it is Labor day. Hopefully it will stay quiet in here and, I’ll be able to get […]
