Last day from the 2006 trip

It's a little hard to see, but this is the finish of Monday night's PIR. I'm the guy closest to the far wall (furthest from camera). Two riders had already crossed the line for first and second, and I "thought" I had won the field sprint...but I got passed at the line by two or three inches.

John S. was filming and thought I had won the field sprint too, which would have put me in 3rd.

All I can say, is that it was AMAZINGLY fun to race again. Especially since I got to race with Randall. 2007, dude. Hopefully we can get a slightly larger crew out there this year: Randall, Simon, Campbell, and maybe even Davanzo.

Mmmmm tasty....

Enjoy a little video:

Can't wait for the cold to break. Riding in sub freezing temperatures (the high during yesterday's ride was 37), while tolerable, tends to get tiring after more than a few weeks.

Thanks to this little item

I will not be unfit when May 23rd rolls around this year! Thanks to Jet Lite's nice, bright, lightweight little wonder device, I've been able to commute to and from work on the mountain bike for 12 of the last 15 days. Figuring it's about 45 minutes one-way, I've been getting a decent workout Singletrack over half the way there, and a fair amount of climbing.

Losing weight, keeping the metabolism up. Gonna make a run at actually being fit this year.

120 days

The Countdown begins.

Not that I'm anxious or anything.
