I remember you racing in the 09 V2R, didnt you have like 6 punctures or something. The last day I remember you coming into the last pit before Reno, you were still ahead of the trophy trucks, you had your i-pod playing so loud you couldnt even hear us. You got gas and took off like a scoulded cat, the nine-fiddy sounded like a freight-train,good times.

Yup 6 flats fixed one in the field. Rear tire came off the rim while trying to ride one. Rode a flat front and rear for miles. Caught a rock to the rad and had to fill it with my cammelback water then ride for 50 miles with no water. Had to tear the bike apart to fix an electrical short. It was a trying race....and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. ghead:

I was probably listening to white snake.

Well, much like a drifter, you were born to walk alone.

I may be chasing again. There's no way I'll be ready this year. I'm in Reno for 2 months until the end of Sept doing 7D weeks I'm told. The bike isn't ready, spares aren't ready, and I'm definitely not ready.

Let's hear about all the wrenching and training you did this weekend!

I cleaned the S.W. corner of my Garage. I'm starting my preperation buildup slow and I'll let it spool up (or spiral out) on it's own.

Any luck on rooms in La Paz?...............Me neither.

I've spent some time on my rowing machine and rode some great singletrack sunday. Far from what I had planned for training but work is taking all my time.

I've always dealt with things by procrastinating then cramming so why should this differ.

Frog you got me by one day of riding. I haven't been on the bike in over a month due to my shoulder. I haven't even been able to do any upper body in the gym. The only things that I have been doing is running and getting on the elliptical trying to get some strength back into it. We will see if any of this is paying off when we get to Baja on the 9th of next month.

Back in college I used to race mountain bikes and I figured out I needed 3 weeks before a race. I could f-off all I wanted, as long as 3 weeks before a big race I was training, I'd be OK. Of course that was a decade ago, it's probably like 3 months now! So I've got two more weeks before i need to do anything!!

I think your math is off. You have at least a month or two before you have to do anything.
