going to colorado to race is like going to wisconsin…

Everyone is so freaking nice.

Well, low morale has me on a road trip. While driving all over? Let’s do two more races.

#114 – Cross of the North – October 10, 2014 – Masters 45+ – 18th
#115 – Cross of the North – October 10, 2014 – CAT3 – 19th
#116 – Cross of the North – October 11, 2014 – CAT3 – 23rd

After two laps during each race? Breathing became VERY painful at six thousand feet.

It was a mud fest.

Morale? Way low.

Morale is REALLY low. Can’t get into it…but let’s just put it like this, I am Randy in “Valley Girl”. Haven’t seen it?

Here:

Anyway, again, I am NOT pleased. I thought when you got a little older the petty stuff would wear off. A las, courage isn’t everyone’s strong suit I guess.

So, doom music is in my play list as I go to Colorado to race cross in the mountains.

I CRAWLED THROUGH THE FORGOTTEN HOUSE. IN OPEN AIR I WILL BE APPEASED. RUBYLESS SETTINGS ON A TERRACE HILL, THEY SEEMED SWALLOWED BY THE SUN.

IT IS EVEN HOT. IT IS EVEN HOT UNDER THE BLUE MOON. I CAN’T SLEEP

I AM DEEPLY AGONIZED BY YOU.

MADDING CROWD IN MY VIEW. SQUIGLE MYSELF UNDERNEATH I SAY. THE STREAM FLOWS, THE SKY BLOWS AS A SULTRY BREEZE AND THE MADDING CROWD STILL IN MY VIEW. I THINK I AM DEEPLY AGONIZED BY YOU.

SHE COMES. SHE COMES MY WAY. HERE SHE COMES. SHE COMES MY WAY. A BLURRED MOON THROWS A SHADOW ON MY FACE.
THE BLACK SEA DASHED LIKE A THUNDER IN MY EARS. I AM DEEPLY AGONIZED BY YOU, BY YOUR LOVE.

Race #?

#113 – Caldwell Woods Cross Something Something – September 28th, 2014 – CAT3 – 93rd Place

Weak sauce!! First real efforts on a bike in like three weeks. Thumb is still healing and all that. Love RIDING cross but I certainly am not a cross racer.

Anyway, I super hugged a tree:

002

Road the whole thing in drops. Meh, off season.

Great day. Loved the course. Groovy.

Uber badass Gf Sarah kicked ass as well and man watching her is awesome.

Hopkins for shits and giggles…jingle cross and the year is over. Track centric moving forward.

trying to be discreet and then there was a lot of bumping

Let’s see. Morale is pretty good actually. Life is fine and all that.

One more night of track then some silly cross races and then rest and weights.

Glad to see some teammates come watch today. Good stuff. Thank you for showing up Leah and Molly!!

Kenosha….

Sooooo, this is how it ended up…

Rider of the Year standings:

CAT2 – 3rd (tied with my god like coach Jon Fraley)
Main Event – 7th (tied with a few people)
Masters 30 + – 5th (sand bagging old farts)
Masters 40 + – 3rd (old gummers on bikes)

Sooooo, three more track days…some choice cross races and I will be Sarah’s gear schlepper instead.

Cross? I did enough of it last year.
