The racing season is about to begin. I fly out tomorrow morning for the Sunny King Criterium tomorrow night and the road race the following morning before heading back that night. It's going to be a whirlwind weekend. I'm looking forward to racing with a few of the new guys and of course the old teammates, not just in age like Sundt and Weiss. You can watch the criterium live as it will be streaming live on Velonews. Action begins at 8:30pm (EST).
I did a race last weekend in Tennessee, the Hell of the South. It was a pretty awesome road race that was 96miles long, with some small rollers and a narley dirt section. It wasn't much different then a training ride, but it was nice to get out with some guys and hammer. I'll probably try to get out and do it again next year if I'm not doing anything else.
Well here's to hoping I'm ready for this weekend. The first one is always a little nerve racking. Especially when your director calls and says it's going to be hard and the speed will be a shock to the system. As if I needed to hear that. I'm more then ready though.
I have to thank Joe Kukola for transporting my Masi in his mini van. Delta now charges $200 each way for a bike. I'm sure my team will appreciate it as well when they don't receive $400 worth of receipts to transport a bike for a weekend. That's more then then the ticket itself.
