Time on my side

What a nice day in the land of wind and snow. Did some good work between here and frisco. Now it is time to take it easy and ride with the kids. Two group rides with the little ones this week. It is always fun to rid with the little ones they are just so happy to ride.. That is the way it should be..Where is my mind?

Need to rest and eat well this week and all things will come toghther it is still earily..The boys trike should be in this week watch him get his bike before I do.. Late 90's Voodoo with a stiff fork and a pullstar rear hub with rasta colored nipples now that is style.......

Lip all huge and puffy and blood streaming out of the cut. It did not help trying to was it out with the bottle of sports drink the feed zone guy handed me. Now if i can just get my new bike I think that i will be ready to go.

Can You Feel That Hum

One in the books.... Had a good time in the Land Of Entrapment, could have gone faster but that should come later. Gave Coach's 29 a test ride on fri to get a idea of the trail and what I gathered was it went up.This would have been a great race to be on the 29er you just had to have the right gear set up. The two guys off the front were on matching IF'S They were fast and then a cupple of rigid 29er and local..... I went with my voodoo because the gear was more set up for the hills.. All in all it was a good race and gave me a few things to work on... And I got to see my bike well not my bike but my teammate tim's..

Heading down to the land of entrapment and going to bike racing a try.. Coach has given me his new 9er to race on see as mine still is not done. I sound like the big guns are comming out tomrrow the bloomer and coaches buddy dusty they'll be the tough ones. My plan is to spin my wheels and go as fast as my body will let me go....

push and shove till it's just enough

Got out and did some hills on the voodoo tonight,. It was just enough got to see how the bike would do on steep hills and how my legs felt.. The bike did well I am going to get a mevlin from coach to keep the chain tight and I am going to rest my legs and let them get ready for a bunch of work. Yes this is the first race of the summer but in my mind it is still training. Now if I can just get through a week of work and make three times the money........

in the dark of

I am so dam mad!!!!!!!!I can't get the voices out of my head. I get pissed and think that I am slow, fat, and out of shape.... I try to think of the ones who have real problems liek jessey or my brother, they have real probles. I am just broke and can't stop the voices, mabye Angle Fire will be good for me getting my ass kicked will at least put me where I belong. A few more days on the bike and then some rest need to get the voodoo ready just to in case something does not work with coaches bike,, at least I got that going for me,,,,.

Got out tonight after feeding the fam dinner, the wind started to die and other than a little cold it was nice. Rode the single cross north and ran into some friends then flip and hit the hills of the highlands. After working on the hills I hit the dirt that was around and doing that on the cross was fun. A little over an hour and 20 miles it was nice eve..Then home and soem really good pasta that I made..I like food.......ONE LESS CAR>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Night and Day

Well after a good day out on the road I ended up yesterday out with C-Ball on dirt. He had just got his race bike put all togother and was ready to ride. We went to BV where the sun was out and it was not snowing. Good climbing and some fun downs the voodoo was riding nice and I think that it will work out fine for the angle fire race. Well as things go we were having fun and starting to go fast on some tight single track when C-ball's front wheel came lodged in some rocks holly shit!!!! Things got bad fast and he cut his face up seeing as that was the only thing that he landed on. A big cut under his eye and blood from his nose and mouth. We walked for a bit and and when he could ride we would do so. After making it back to the county we hit up the ER and they stiched up his eye... I have to say that he got lucky because it could have been so much worse. An inch to the left or the right and their would have been no walking out.....He is one tough SOB...And his bike came out fine through the whole mess.. Today saw more of the same shity weather snow wind and sun.. I mad it out with coach and I think that we pushed a pretty good pace. I sat on his wheel as much as I could he is fast for an old man..........It was a good weekend and now time to start to think about getting reday for work......

Clipless pedals on the kids trike??

Not really fast but not slow... I got out after dinner and found the large cear spot in the sky.. 30 miles and a good pace just a mile slower than I have had the past few rides. I want to make the strange creak noise go away it is driving me crazy. I might try to get some dirt this weekend that would be nice just means that I have to drive.. TGIF tomrrow is friday and that is badass..
