Got to ride dirt last night. It felt good to be one the mountian bike. Next week i'll get to be on it a lot , then come home and sell it to get ready for my 29er. i have to say that i am going to miss this old solo one it has been so good to me , but it is time for change and that is a hand built 29er. The plan for next week is moab, flagstaff, sedona, scottsdale, and then back the same way ...

60 guys on the line for todays race. Got out off the front and felt good , pulled some guys for the first two laps and then had to start working HARD.. Was not ready for the running it was a lot of up hill one after another . Held off a few folks and cross the line 8th . The single worked well just couldn't jump across the gap to hold on to the front 5 .Next race is littleton on sun and then it is time to ride dirt on the MT. bike .. Can't wait for vacation .

went to golden on sunday to race cross..I was felling good ready to ride hard. Standing on the start line I look down and see a goat head , what to do we start in under a minute.. We start and i go about 100yards and that is it , go figure off the front and a flat . I got a wheel from tall travis and it held up but before the first lap was up i blew the rear , not much that i could do for the rear being a single set up with a gusset .. Told that i could race the 3's so i change the wheel and get ready for the next race , again standing at the line goat head !!!!! jumped in the car and left . Just got some tire strips and will bring a front wheel extra for this weekend but shit that sucks , drive down three tubes and no race . Hopefully this weekend goes better .. Then to make matters worse Tuesday at work i notice that my front wheel was flat again ,, damm goat heads suck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always feel like tom cruz when i ride through the Air Force base , today they would not let me all the way through because i did not have the proper ID.. Oh well just went and found more hill to climb else where . The thing about riding down here in the springs is their is always another hill you have to climb , not like back home in the county where it is stright up then straight down ... Good work today getting ready for next week in boulder ..
