too tired to post last nite
Did 70 with team mates yesterday. We started with a good sized group and had dwindled to 5 by the time we decided to celebrate the Paris Roubaix and go as fast as we could down the Mopac to Elmwood on our road bikes. At some point, we lost one more, and then there were 4 wore out roadies flying down the trail towards washouts, sticks, and a couple of really big holes. Cost me one flat. Should have had my Bontrager hard cases on. The Roubaix was further honored with a fast rotation home via the Hwy 34 shoulder with all of its crunched up asphalt, bumps, cracks, etc. By this time, my legs were pretty blown and I stayed out of the rotation and just tried to hold on to Troy, Marc, and Kevin. Finally made it home and my legs are still feeling it but I expect they'll be OK by race time today.
Goin' MTB racing in Council Bluffs. Being as it's been awfully wet in Kansas, this is the only game in town and the turnout oughta be pretty good, at least for the men's fields. Looking forward to it. Manawa is a flat, fast, twisty fun trail. The other two times I've ridden it, I've used a singlespeed cross bike. Gonna run the badger today tho.
