This is how my weekend started out. Kids threw a rock through the window. The last thing I wanted to deal with before racing. I guess my neighbors shed was broken into as well. My other neighbor chased some teenagers aways last week trying to break into cars. Mark my words, I will get the punks. Filed a police report, but the cops are too busy eating donuts at the 7-11 one block away than actually doing any patroling. Seriously, they are at the 7-11 all day and night long, god forbid they cruise the neighborhood once in awhile and work!
The race went ok. I had a lot left over. I just have not done any interval training to get the top end speed yet, but the endurance is fine. First real intensity ride of the year. I want to know why I am the only one in baggies at a single speed race. Also whats up with all the couple grand single speed bikes? I wouldnt be suprised if I started to see full suspension single speed bikes at the races, LAME! Last time I checked racing single speed was showing everyone how tough you were on the basic bike and having fun. Hey guys, get a clue. And yes I will beat you later in the year when the fitness progresses. I was too busy slashing when you were all training. For the record I built my bike up for $200.
Look at Art's dirt beard. It was dusty out there. To top things off I was too preoccupied with the window and spaced my glasses. I still have dirt in my eyes and its Sunday night! Art had some Tecate's for me after the race, my favorite. Next time dont forget the limes!
On Sunday rode the single speed with the wife. She is still getting the feel of riding dirt, but she is getting better. She didnt start biking or snowboarding until she met me. Good for her. Later I went and rode Mueller Park with Boyer. I forget the camera, hence no pics. Actually it was my first time up there. I usually dont drive to shred one track. It was a lot of fun, but all the dogs and people on the trail make me nervous.
