Dis whether, she maka me no happie

Well at least it should be sunny and warm all weekend in hurricane for the race and ridin.

Did 3 minute intervals up emigration today, got a rear flat on the roadie after the first, made the final 2 lessons in low motivation, at least the first one was good,

I keep trying to do intervals up emi, I keep remembering why I don't after the first try, too many flat and downhills on the way up makes it hard to keep the power up. Mill Creek is next.

Dr. X and Cavey (holy crap he actually updated his site) are bailing on the MTB race so they can race in circles, at least it should be entertaining, cold and wet this year.

Daren  and Rico (cause he is afraid to get cold) are at least trying to make it to the MTB race.

Kathy had a good race at the Pro XCT opener. She will be drinking the blood of her rivals within a month, guaranteed, I'm calling a Sea Otter podium for sure.

Everyone, repeat after me

'CRITS ARE STUPID'

Thank You.

Not looking so good for me to make it down South. Enjoy the warm. Maybe I'll do hell of the north if it's muddy enough for cross tires.

The skiing on Saturday is going to be awesome!

I think skiing is stupid or maybe I just dont have the cash flow to make it happen. I am heading south to hang out with y'all. No crits for me....yet

Wah. All the dirt boys are afraid of crits, so they do intervals instead. That sounds like fun. Except for Fox, he trains on the scooter.

Sounds like the bitter rant of someone who doesn't ski nearly enough. Or do you snowboard? Either way, last I checked Bart wasn't complaining about the weather, and his fitness seems to be OK.

You should really say "crits are stupid (or gay) if you don't like crits like me."

Having done crits for years I actually think they are pretty fun and are a great workout. Of course I have never been involved in a good pileup at a crit either (knock on wood), which may change my opinion. Lately I would rather ride my mountain bike, but may hit a few crits this year to test my legs and luck.

Hats off to anyone doing Hell of the North this year. Should be perfectly nasty and fun in a miserable suffering sort of way that all good bike races are.

Oh yeah, all crit racers should read this:
