Quick and Dirty

Hey sicko, get your mind out of the gutter. This is about bike racing. And some other stuff.

Oops. Back to sucking at 'cross.

I don't know what was going on today, I couldn't get out of my own way. I had a shitty start and wound up riding along in about 10th-11th place for the first few laps. Then guys started riding up to me and having their way with me. I just couldn't climb worth a fart and there was a signifigant and windy climb again today so I was getting dropped each time up that. I was really pissed when my legs came around on the last lap- I started going fast and it didn't do me any good because the others were way out of range. I also punctured a Dugast while pre-riding the course.

17th is still pretty good. I did not like this new course either, felt like crap on it compared to yesterday. Oh well, better luck next time I guess.

Thanks dude. I actually liked the course better today but I just couldn't get going. I was glad they didn't run us through that mud. The descent was pretty fun and all around I thought it had a better flow today, the climb was kind of broken up and seemed shorter even though I went slower up it... I can't tell you how pissed I was when I actually started feeling good on the last lap! Weird.

It was great to spend time with you and watch you race. You are correct to say that we are a second family to you.

We know what two halves may make the whole Dave; jew and werewolf. If you were to have to choose what two halves would make you recognizable in a pub, what would they be?
