Huffing Mastik

Lot's of tires to glue. Can my central nervous system take the fumes?

Sucker Brook is in 6 days. Holy moly.

Hup put up a great showing yesterday, crowned with a victory by PVB. The guy is a monster this year. I wish I could have witnessed it, but the good doctor and I chose to ride a charity ride in Worcester. 50 miles in the rain. It was awesome. She is impressively strong right now, but she got first hand exposure to what it is like riding with a bunch of cat 4s and 5s. Someone said "what do you get when you put 3 or more cat 4s together? A race." Yeah, this wasn't far off. Lot's of dumb antics going on. We kept letting them go because of the sketch factor, but then she kept catching them on the climbs. Hilarious. I flatted at mile 30, so that was the end of our "chase", but still a great ride. I'll have her type up her account and post it.

I feel good for Sucker Brook. But, I really have no idea about where my fitness is at. My fitness is higher than it has been in probably 10 years, but where the hell does that put me? I guess I'll know on Sunday.

sounds....fun? that rain (if it was anything what I raced in).....ick.

I think I fancy racing the 3/4 at sbc.....the only question is if I am going to do the 4 before or not.

I feel you man, I've done 2 pairs already and have got 5 more pairs to do before Sucker Brook. Too bad I'm not even going to be there to enjoy all my hard work...

Z and Josh, you will have three belgian blue bulls eyes to chase after! come and get us! i expect to see you both on the 3/4 start line and both pushing me at every chance you get.

Zank. It is year three of our battle. You have cunningly beat me the last two seasons, but this year I have secret preseason training under my belt, as well as a little something something I like to call "En Fuegito"

The little Fire.

I do not fear you, Katsumi. But I certainly respect you as a worthy adversary.

rosey.....if you ever happen to be near me on a technical section, well that sucks for you. follow me at your own peril.

and if you ever happen to be near me in the barriers, watch the heck out (ask zank about brc/slickwilly)

however if you ever happen to be near me on a power section (say harder surfaces with few obstacles) then scream at me to "go go go", get on my wheel, and while I don't provide much of a draft, all the p/1/2/3 crits have got to be good for something, right?
