Good Week

This week has been a good week. I won my first fixed gear track race. It was a 3 lap scratch race and i won by a few meters, or at least that is what the guy in second place told me. the rest of the night was ok, nothing special.

the second part is a lot better. i just received this email

Dear Racer,

Congratulations! You have qualified for the 2008 USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships scheduled for July 16-20, 2008 at Mount Snow Resort in West Dover, VT.

in only 2 race in my life i qualified for nationals. i am debating on going. and i know its nothing special to qualify, thousands of people do it yearly, but racing in VT, sounds like sooo much fun.

anyways this week i am racing WORS 3 in Wausau. anyone else wanna go? I am heading up saturday and camping up there until the race on sunday. normally i would drive, but i dont want to drive that much on sunday, and a preride would be wonderful!.

Until next post.

PS this wasnt editted or reread

DNF + 2nd = Good weekend

Baraboo = DNF

I flatted 5 mins after i pulled myself from the hillest road race i have even been on. Hillsbouro was bad, but Baraboo was nasty. DNF official one, unofficial two. there isnt much else to say, it sucked

Iola (WORS) =2nd place in Citizen Clydesdale under 34

I decide to attempt a mountain bike, and i must say i had more fun in that one race than ANY road, or crit race i have even been in. I mean the pre and post races weren't all that different, i know a ton of people no matter where i do. but the race it self was something amazing. I personally thought my race was very bad, but i was only 10 mins behind the leader of my group.

I was so excited about the race i am went out and got of Gary Fisher X-caliber this past week. Next stop WORS stop 2 Treadfest in Lake Geneva. after doing a race i promised a teammate i would help him win, Monsters of the Midway.
