I just completed my first derby. I feel like I'm getting closer to completing all my goals in cycling, which also means retirement is also closer. Ha!

It was pretty cool ride as we hit a nice tailwind/crosswind on the way back and the Rite Aid boys were on the front flying. We pretty much got rid of almost everyone that had started and it was just us at the end. The new fellas are strong which is great to see. I can't wait to see us all together in action already, and it's only been a day together. But this was not the end of the fun for us.

On the way back I just so happen to snap a chain that got caught up in my wheel which caused me to skid and slide right out on the shoulder of 222. It all went down in slow motion, it was quite the experience. Luckily my left hand man was there with a spare quick link and had me fixed up before Miles and Robbie could fix a flat. Once we got all situated again, the doc got a flat, and this time Bill got a tube ready, the doc took the old one out, and put the new one in, and I used my sweet frame pump that turns into a floor pump and had him up to 100psi and lickedly split.

Good first day. I have some video from the morning ride and a few pictures that I'll post later when I feel like putting them on the computer.

Breeze On.
