Waterford Hills Summer Series #2

Busted out the road bike for the 2nd time this year. Early on in the race, a 9 man break formed in which we had 3 guys in, Ray, Luke, and Cory. The other 6 guys were all on their own in that break (no teammates) so it was pretty decent odds for a good team result. Half way through I found myself in a 5 man chase group, Danny, Tim Saari, Rich Russell, and Bill Gilboe. A few laps before the end Bill rolled away and no one reacted. It just made things even Tim and Rich against me and Danny, well I'm not sure how much I could help Danny. I decided the best I could do was just go to the front and try and keep a pace that the guys would be happy to sit in on and hope that Danny could get the spot. So I did my 4 mile leadout and Danny didn't let me down. That was pretty fun. :-)

Bloomer Park XC

After riding during the week with Christian, Bill, and Cruise it was pretty obvious that I'm still off from race shape so I lined up at the back as we gathered at the start. Well, race turned out to be pretty tough for me.. The back was aching quite a bit and the legs aren't really working yet.. Climbing seems to be the worst right now... Funny at the end some of my friends don't want to believe I finished that far off or that I'm out of shape.. They think I was taking it easy, maybe still resting my back... That's truly all I got right now.. It's kinda strange and hard to believe that I'll ever go fast again... Simonster guessed it would be about 6 weeks to get back to race shape... Based on that about 3.5 weeks left... I guess I can deal with that...
