From Florida to Indianapolis to Boulder and onto Redlands (California).
I ended up not racing the NCC criterium in Delray Beach. I had a saddle sore develop the week of Florida and come Saturday morning I could not even sit on chair without discomfort let alone a bike seat. It felt like I had a marble down there. It tried an early spin the morning, but after 10mins of standing and not being able to sit turned around. I did the same thing 1.5hr before the race, but again couldn't come close to sitting down.
Luckily I started treatment right away to help get rid of it. After many baths a day cleaning, baby rash cream, bag balm, and etc the swollen had gone down and I was able to ride again.
Andy likes to use his trusty Atlas to see where we are at and going. I haven't seen one since the 90's
We started our drive back home on Sunday morning and skipped the racing as I was unable to race, we had one rider with a broken collarbone who had to catch a flight, and the van needed a check up so it would get us home. Also on the way home I promised Andy we would stop at a Hooters as he wanted it all week, and it was something Matt needed to experience. We scarfed down an embarrassing amount of wings and fries. It took a couple of days to recover from that one as well.
Our new shorts. They just felt so nice.
Once we arrived back in Indy on Monday we did have nice surprise, our new team kit had arrived. I don't remember a time when putting on a new pair of shorts ever felt so good. Of course with the cold winter that will net let go it also included putting just about everything on as well. Thanks to Pactimo for the great clothing.
While I drove the other two climbed in the back to watch movies.
While they drove, I got out and rode. Just head west.
We had a few good training days there in the cold before doing another long drive out to Boulder. So now I'm sitting in yet another amazing hotel room waiting for Andy and Matt to wake up so we can head to breakfast and then a sweet ride in the mountains. We will be leaving on Monday for Redlands.
A quick couple hour ride checking out the scene. Pretty awesome actually.
