Soooo, how was it? What happened to Katie?
Christine,Remember to eat well, drink lots, and find that top end with out blowing the gauges!! Get some quality sleep. Give Coe Coe a good pep talk, and go out and kick some major ASS!rickie
Yay for Mum!Hope you did good :)
thanks for the cheers! they got me from last row callup to breaking top 20 in the first lap...until a gal ran directly into me and broke my bike. by the time i reached the pit to switch bikes i was in dead last. With gaps too big and motivation dwindling fast, I rolled in for 30th. Ugh. But the good news is that I will have yet another chance this weekend in TABOR! road trip, road trip, road trip - love 'em! More info on my blog soon as well as on CXmagazine.com. Thanks again.
NICE!!! Good to hang in and get some fitness work. I rolled a tubular at Gloucester last weekend in the 1/2/3 35+ race, and was (yep) dead last. Busted my hump to catch two guys before I got lapped by Mark McCormack to finished third from DFL (dead f'ing last). I saw New England's own Adam Myerson was there (finished four laps down). Interesting guy. Lots of tattoos.
jonas and i helped adam while he was there. I didnt know him well before yesterday but he was pleasantly more humble than i had expected. Nice guy. He also went there for UCI commission meetings and the world cup was just a "may as well do it while i am there" thought.
I've talked with him briefly a handful of times. I was going to interview him for some research I was going to do on intercultural communication in professional cycling. He puts on a great race in Northampton, Massachusetts. We're going to have frites there this year!!Also check him out in the cyclocross movie "Transitions". We had the premier at our club sponsor, which is a brewery. Good times.
Nice to slug it out in the first big race of the season....would have been fun to be there since two of my favorite CX racers (and vegans, ie you and Adam) were there. Adam is a super stand up guy, has given a ton to the sport. I'm surprised you never even chatted with him since you did so many of the NE and mid-atlantic races in the first half of the 2000's.Kick it up in Tabor
thanks gc and steve. Gc, enjoy the friten.too cool.
