So I am 2 races behind! How did that happen! I am going to skip the BB and move right into the downhill speed race. The abbreviated version though. Mile 10, assisted tumble. Forceful bike adjustments, back on. Through group 3, up to group 2(Thanks Tyler). Ryan comes back and asks me what to do. I tell him to get me to the lead group. He says OK and blows group 2 apart. We catch Darrin and Mark'o at about mile 25. We chase, get within 15 seconds of the lead group and cannot bridge. The 212 team rolls across for 8th, 9th, and 11th. Great times! Also thanks to Stans, I finished with this nice roofing nail in my tire!!
The women made us look bad by taking 4th and 5th. Nice job to all and congrats to TJ.
Now onto this week. Yesterday I felt like a Pro. Scott and I met up early, grabbed lattes off my espresso machine, loaded up the road and mountain bikes and headed for GB. Met Pete for a morning road ride on the roads south of De Pere. On our way back in Scott and Pete about got taken out by a delivery truck that did not stop coming out of the driveway. I was so happy to see them both swerve at the same exact time to just barely miss the front bumper of this morons truck! After the road ride we headed over to Nicolet for some breakfast and talk about next year. Yes the 2011 season. Amazing how these talks happen earlier every year. I really think this is easiest for all partied involved cause bike companies like to know their orders early and I like not running around getting bikes the day before a race. Needless to say Team 212 will be riding Specialized bikes for another season! Sweet!! If you are looking for a killer bike then go here http://www.specialized.com/
Once we were done with breakfast, Scott and I then headed over to the Reforestation Camp and hit up the MTB trails. Not digging the 2 mile leadout, but the rest is a lot of fun. After riding we then went to lunch and headed home. Not a bad day at all.
See everyone this weekend!!
