Weight training makes me sleepy.

I don’t think I ‘ve gotten any more than 6 hours of sleep a night this week either. I’ve had a lot of stuff on my mind. Been spending lots of time with Pete and the Veloshop has been super busy. Been riding a lot too with the weather being so reasonable. That feels amazing for once. I can tough it out in the rain and put in some crappy miles but, it had gotten old forcing myself out in the wet and dark 4 hours before work. Big shout out to the person who invented the time change. Spring forward.

Stuff on my mind?

First: Wish the best for Saul Raisin. Heal up. Soon. Same with Dean Tracy, wrecked his car and was in the hospital last weekend.

Next: The “stiffness” test in Velonews. The article is in the print version. Basically the 3 racing bikes I’ve been hott for are rated the highest. The Scott, Lapierre and, Cervelo. Tests like that don’t define how a bike will ride but it still feels good reading about a fancy bike you have rating high on some goofy test in a magazine.

By the way, Veloshop is officially a Lapierre dealer, come get your carbon on. I’m stocking a women’s specific entry level road bike and you may see some of the Veloshop team on carbon Lapierre frames this summer. I’m also working on a Veloshop “shop” blog. I figure, I can easily upload photos and product updates and shop info on a blog. Here is the new address, I’ve got to work on it soon.

Adam Craig killing it on a cross bike during the Sea Otter Super XC. Look at the results. Sea Otter is like a World Cup! All the reports say it is muddy as shit. Sounds super fun.

Damn. I started this post Friday morning and have been screwing with it all day. Lost my train of thought. More later.

  1. I showed up to watch my freind race Short Track and immediately wondered why I left my cross bike at home. It is sooooooooooooo muddy,
    it’s a combination of the Eugene Cross Race and the Mudslinger. Nasty, nasty. The XC course will be in good condition though. I’ll throw down and represent for the Northwest. Saw Adam at a resteraunt Thursday.

  2. way to go on the women specific entry level road bike — now that’s keeping up with the market and competing with those ‘bigger shops’ you speak of. you should have no problem selling those.

  3. put the Veloshop Blog off of have your web guru fix the database. makes more sense than having to goto a separate address, plus more traffic to the main site for your SPONSORS. just my $0.02. all the best, Mark

  4. I know, I know. I’ve got seperate hosts and it is kinda confusing. The seperate addresses is a quick fix. In between work and training and stuff I’ll find time to get the website done up right. I’m not planning on keeping the “old” website around, everything will go onto the new “blog” style site. By the way, I ran out of ‘dex for you Mark, I’ll let you know in a few months when we get more, I’ll send some out your way! You should plan on going up to Glousceter and racing with me this October!
