I’ve been avoiding writing anything about the above. There is so much drama going on and it seems everyone has an opinion about Flandis and veganism and gender and kozy shack and track bikes and drama, drama, drama.
I’m over it. Though I did tear out the page from People magazine about Lance Armstrong, Jake Gyllenhall and (puke) Matt McConaughey hanging out and going on a bike ride in Malibu! Sweet!
Brian List was helping out at the track last night and told me: “XC racing is not dead until we kill it.” Well said. The irony of 2 local boys being the current national XC and short track champions is not lost on me. Some of the OBRA community is up in arms about the quality and quantity of our local XC races and race scene. It comes and goes I think. Road racing is very, very popular right now. Mountain biking is not so hot. Cross is hot right now…
Ok, I am avoiding the drama on that one too.
I raced the short track mountian bike race last monday and got 2nd place again. After crashing myself out pretty good too! Knees, elbows, ribs, hip, ankle, feet. It all hurts. I skipped out on a mid week criterium to race the track on Thursday. Damn was I tired. So, damn tired. Markwelder and I won the Madison and I won 3 of the other 4 events yet still ended up 2nd overall. huh? I won’t go into it. Trust me, I was yawning and just going to fall asleep any second. They say sleep is the cousin of death. Don’t sleep.
I got a hold of my Aunt about staying with her this September for a cross racing weekend. Exciting, I’ve got to buy my flight soon.
I’ve even started jogging again. Look out.
What I am listening to right now?
