Stony Creek XC

Well this was my second training race today. Overall I suck, but that is ok. I think my fitness is back to pre-injury levels so at least that is one good thing.
I felt good on the first lap, but the second I could tell something was going on with my blood sugar. I stopped and checked it, and it was 309. When I stopped everyone passed me or left me that I was racing with. I suffered through the rest of the lap which was about 5 minutes slower than my first. The last lap I started to feel better about 1/2 way through it, but by then it was too late.
It was good getting the body back being used to the racing and how much it hurts. I was just happy to be out there, last year at this time I didnt think I would race or even ride my bike again.

Next up the season starts for real at waterford hills!

Cross Rumors

Heard some interesting rumors today. Well maybe they arent rumors and are the truth?

The flyover is almost done. It is big, but you got about a 12 foot platform to get on the bike. The steps are big and it is going to hurt. Sounds like it will be at the clinic on the 12th and could make an appearance at springfield oaks, depending on the weather.

(I ripped this off from lil ponies blog)

Vets park is going to have a costume race. Sounds like it will be in addition to the other races, and I have heard that they will be giving away a pretty expensive frame. Not sure the details of how I am going to go about wining it though.

Stay tuned for more info...

Cross is in the air

It needs to warm up. This weather reminds me of cross season, and I am itching to get the racing started.
