Lap one corner of death...... 07 CX Nationals

So my moment in the spotlight as I have an unfortunate meeting with "treefarm". I genuinely felt bad for dude, but not responsible for the event. Looking back at the two way traffic in that corner was a recipe for disaster. Lap one saw about 20 plus people blow through the tape. I got pushed wide lap two and caught a rut that threw me in his path. Sucks. Trebon is a class act and was beyond cool when we talked after the wreck in medical.

Lap two, impact.

The unfortunate. i 70 snowstorm going to Kansas City for Cyclocross Nationals.

Some good came out of the slog across Kans-ass in the ice storm of 2007. I met a real trippy lady at the dive motel, got to fully test my new studded snowtires, catch-up on the am news and agg. report.

To make things a little sweeter..... I was carrying the bikes and gear of BCS riders Kilgore and Dwight. I arrive 15 minutes before the start of the masters 35 race. Came peeling into the parking lot, parked illegal, had of yard sale of bike and gear but got them squared away for the start.

Bandon Delivers.

Trip to DeerVally National.
The 5th stop of the National Mountainbike Series
Drive there was cool. Through the plains of Wyoming, vast wind energy farms.

Teammate and semi-pro racer John Chambers.

Semi feed zone.... patroled by the Norba Nazi's feed zone official. Both Chambers and I got yelled at for "too much support"

Reducing our carbon footprint, with gas at 3 dollars + a gallon it's easy being ecofriendly. Packed in tight in the mini 3 bikes 3racers 1 Desert Beagle
Yeah, it's that steep. Anglefire NM is also littered with volcanic rockgardens. Really unpredictable sets of rocks that had me just holding on "pin balling" though the wost on them.

After a long winter slumber, Game On and back to the dirt. Nathrop CO for the first of 7 events in the Norba Regional Series the "Mountain States Cup"

It's a good feeling to race with intensity and purpose after being cooped up in a long front range winter. Our mountain bike team came out swinging and scooped up many points in the team competition. One of our tough guys, "Steve Oliver" payed the price in the short track. Had been cooped up a little to long and celebrated the opener with a "Bicycle Scorpion"
