What’s in a Blog

Posted by on Feb 28, 2006 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Dave Harris commented today on the mind game that is Endurance racing. He points out that blogs have had an effect on how a racer prepares for these events. He is right. I think other rider’s blogs effect both our physical and mental preparation for a race. I read up on what certain people are […]

Glimpse of Spring

Posted by on Feb 26, 2006 in Uncategorized | No Comments

So the last couple of days have been perfect. 60 degrees, no clouds, no wind. It made for a very nice 4.5 hour road ride yesterday. Forcast shows rain coming later in the week, so I need to enjoy this while I can. This week I should be recieving my new Maxxis Ignitor 29″ tires. […]

Whatever it Takes

Posted by on Feb 23, 2006 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Once in a while I tend to wax philosophical. Today is one of those times. There comes a point when being a successful endurance racer requires more. More time in the saddle. More planning. More racing. Or perhaps it requires less. Fewer late nights, fewer exceptions to the “no dessert” rule, fewer days that you […]

24 Hours in the Old Pueblo

First things first. 24OP was a great time. The weather was perfect, the course was in good shape, and the racing was fast and furious. My teammates rode hard fast laps, and we were rewarded with a 2nd place podium spot in the 5 Person Open (age 200+) class. To Chris, KC, Paul, and Boris….Thank […]

Nearly There

Tomorrow evening I will head out to Tucson for the OP race. Of course I have mentioned that in several recent posts, so you may already know that. It is snowing outside. After a couple weeks of decent riding weather we are back to Winter. The forcast is calling for rain on Sunday in the […]

Happy Valentines Day

Today is the day that you show your Valentine how much you care. I think I will get her some Bike Lust, some chain lube, and of course a cog brush. My Valentine will be very happy! Of course, my wife may not appreciate having the bike get the royal treatment today. Perhaps I should […]

Evening on the Road

Posted by on Feb 14, 2006 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I had an easy spin tonight on the road bike with Keith. The last few rides I have felt pretty good. I think the stairmaster, the weight room, the trainer in the basement and all the cold outdoor rides are starting to pay off. I hope so. This weekend in Tucson will be a good […]
