N.C. RR championships coming up this weekend. Debating on whether I want to try my hand at both days, or just prepare for the Category racing on Sunday. It's in my backyard and our club is co-sponsoring the race so I'm very familiar with the course and how/where things should happen. Age group racing on Saturday (67 miles for my group) and category racing Sunday (53 miles for Cat 4). Never tried two RR back to back and unsure if I can push that hard on Saturday with enough recovery by Sunday to be effective. Especially with heat index pushing over 100 every day this week...

One of my buddies on another team is asking me to help him and about 4 others in a breakaway on the third lap in Sunday's cat 4 race. I think it could work if timed right and I know where it should happen. We are about the same level in ability, so it should not be a sprint-drop repeat scenario.

Biking in Kazakhstan

My buddy Chris rode with her on Sunday. Pretty cool journey. He wasn't sure how much biking he would be doing out there and I can tell he is pleasantly surprised.

Sometimes, the comedy just writes itself.

The Italian riders who were busted or under investigation for doping won't be laughing, they were informed that if the Italian Federation got its way, they'd be banned from ANY championship races starting this year and beyond.

I say


As far as Contadoper getting to ride the TdF this year

You were busted for doping products and temporaily let off the hook. It could have been accidental but the plasticizers from blood doping bags weren't an accident stick boy. And yes, I'm jealous I'm not that skinny or fast


DId you notice the team list for the Vuelta (Tour of Spain)? 4 Spanish teams which is normal for a Spanish race, but there are also 4 American teams, more than the rest of the countries. Gald to see that.

Not sure who's uptight and needs to chill, I was just commenting all the dopers aren't laughing right now.

I can only wish I was good enough to taste champaign on a podium of ANY race!! I'd not only drink it, I'd bath myself in it! Unless maybe if it were a frozen Belgium spring classic...

Used to do a 20 mile round trip to college 5 days a week and 40 on weekends.
After I bought the KLX400 my mountain bike took a long break...

Still on my 6 yr old DBR full susp cross country, still pretty light.
Has front & rear lockouts for pavement or hills.

I would have a roadie too but I like the dirt so much more and live near
a great river with far to many opportunities to drop off the paved trail.

nice bike for Down Hill racing.. :)

Moto-pacing session with the Yeti last night. Painful, fast but fun! Hanging a few inches off the license plate of a Silver Wing at 30+ mph takes a bit of getting used to.

I stopped watching the Giro once it was determined that that doping SOB was gonna win. IDCare how well he's doing, he shouldn't be racing. Or allowed to race by organizers. Period.

...but that's my opinion...

...and unlike LA who never had a positive test (that we know about) AC's been busted.

I was out with a group. Yeah, a group! *gasp!* that don't happen often where I am.

There were 6 of us. I didn't quite try and rip their legs off, but I didn't get too far from it either.
