Thumb good people

Got an email response today. SRAM is out of juicy 3's so they will be upgrading me to Elixir 3s . My bicycle was purchased from Competitive Cyclist ( as we have no Santa Cruz dealers anywhere close) and they have been a pleasure to deal with. Customer service has been top notch with quick responses to any question I had. Would purchase from them again .

On another note, I placed 2nd in the Powerade N.C. state games crit today. Got away with 4 other riders and lapped the field a few times before drilling the sprint.

Way to go Ridge! the Coaching is helping?

If by helping you mean decimating my physical strength and will to get out of bed the next morning... then yes.

Seriously, his AT intervals have me working harder and drilling myself into the ground worse than any race day. We need to do some more moto-pacing when I get on a regular schedule with the workouts.

We'll do that. I had a freind I used to train with when I raced,His bit of advice among many. Race hard,Train harder. Racing should be easier than your training workouts.

There's nothing like waking up in morning and saying WTF did I do to my self. ( Sore muscles not severe hangover)

The more you hurt in training, the less you hurt racing. That little mantra has worked for me for years. Too bad its so damn tough to do on your own.

I've done both. Of the two, I prefer the sore/stiff legs feeling than queasy, gonna puke cause I drank too much feeling.

I let myself have 4 hangovers/year. I'm at 2 right now. As much as I'm riding, I don't want the other two! Interferes too much

That's definitely one of those situations where you take the bad with the good. As much as I'd like to conjure up images of a thousand naked swedish women's volleyball babes on bikes, I must face the grim reality that there's a sausage or a hundred mixed in amongst 'em... Wonder how many of 'em used chamois butter first?
