Slipping & Sliding in Reston

Lisa Lisa!

DeeDee. Oh, and Victoria's Secret is having a sale!!!

The girls may have had it the worst out there...

Art the Dart leading the chase early on

Art the Dart got tangled up behind some wreckage and mildly went down on his back and noggin! Good thing that corner was heavily staffed. This particular marshall picked up Art's bike, put the chain back on, and shoved him on. And coach Crazy is barking out orders to his star pupil, mainly pep talk, and to make sure he stops by the pit area to get a free lap... He rode like an animal after that!

A Ruff Week !

OK, so we all know about the crash I had at the tues nite Crit... Things are healing up rather nicely, but my whole left side is quite sore. And I have not pedaled a bike till today at the X-terra urban assault in Richmond VA. Some awesome trail system is laid out here!!! If you know the trail, you have an advantage. Crazy and I were running early so we decided to do a loop as a warm up which is 15 miles... (Wrong move sucka!) It as long and HOT... One of my new brake pads installed the previous night decided to work itself loose. I found it, but lost the pin that locks er in place. Crazy gave me one of his # plate ties and bingo, back on the saddle. My poor little road rash was not happy going over the rough and technical aspects of this trail. Each bump sent pains through my hip and forearm. And I was so scared of crashing on my healing flesh wounds. So we made it back in time for the start, lined up for the LeMans start and off we went. I didn't even make it one mile before my derailer got ripped out of my frame and caused massive destruction! My poor circa 1998 Trek 9800! I think she's finally done. I was trying to make er last a decade but oh well... On the bright side though, seeing everyone finish with evidence of multiple crashes, I'm glad I was forced out of the race early. If i went down on my fresh healing flesh I would be HOT!!! Crazy crashed a lot but finished well, Danbo finished well also while coughing up lungs. KJ, Maye, and Ed rebeled their way through the race without #'s cus they missed the cutoff for reg??? cmon people, they pre-registered! Give em a #! Liz did outstanding! Not crashing at all and finishing 3rd! I'm so proud, You Go Girl!!!
Then we had to boogey on back to Tidewater through traffic to the Ward's residence to celebrate Courtney's graduation from high school! You Go Girl ! Good luck at ODU.
Harlan, and Lisa, thanks for opening you're wonderful home to us and grilling up some fabulous meats! I think I had just about everything there was offered. The beverages were good too. Silly, you and J-bug are something else!
I'm looking forward to an awesome Father's Day, won't you join me...

I have tried to post pic's, but like JB it's not happening. I will try again later

Dog Down !!!

Another Tuesday night crit happened, and once again it was hard and windy. Only this time no breaks stuck. So there was a field sprint. A first on this course. I did the unthinkable. I crashed. Last lap, last turn 5th position, 28mph, and all of the suddon wheels just slid out from under me and I slid across the road on my hip and forearm. Fortunately, I didn't take anyone else out! And there were some good bike handlers right behind me. Good ol mtb'ers! This coulda been so much worse. See ya'll soon! Dog licking his wounds...

Rainy Saturday

This is the view I have from my office on a Saturday... Well I guess it beats sunny skies and perfect riding weather. I'm looking at it as a perfect day to work. Looks like I will be hitting the gym after work instead of a late afternoon ride on the TT rig.
Caged dog, signing off...
