While Dirty, D2 and Gnome rip it up in the Old Pueblo tonight, I thought I’d post a few links I had saved for a while.
In the meantime, just got a text from Dirty: “the 40mph wind is killing me”.
* Updated: 5:58pm (AZtime) DB posted to Facebook: “Sitting in my truck trying to thaw out,48 miles in my legs, sore jaw from shivering..man, I love riding my bike”
* Gnome is 4 laps down.
* Rose, one of the girls on the DC Vixen Team says their 4th girl is out now.

Here in the mid-west the weather broke and the sun came out. For the first time in two and a half months, we’ve had NICE outdoor riding weather for the last week. I love the feeling of spring coming on. It’s so exciting, that feeling of being out on the road, riding your bike with some friends, and you know winter is coming to an end. When you’ve been locked inside, sweating it out on rollers, and all of the sudden it’s time to ride outside again, it’s like being a kid all over again.
I am officially registered for Mohican 100m. It will be harder than the Ironman. I am no longer training with a coach either. I am just gonna fucking do this thing. My friend James is doing it too.
This is James and his trailer train, taking his boys to a b-day party. James’ little boy, Emmett, had a severe brain injury at birth. He’s 7 now and has outgrown the regular kid trailers. James had this rad trailer made by Wicycle.com. They can make special trailers for every kind of need possible. Emmett loves to go riding singletrack with his Dad.
Onto some other news…in case you haven’t heard. This has been sitting in a draft post since the day it came out.
Katie signed with a new team. Congrats to Katie and Mark!
Picture by Giant Bicycles. I like this shot alot.
This has to be the dumbest thing I ever saw. An Eliptigo. Check them out, getting all aero and shit.
Ron, our LBS owner emailed me tonight, “We sold 6 bikes today and took in a new toy for the shop! A ZH1 20inch trials bike.” The one they bought has silver rims.
I hope Gnome, D2 and Dirty and all the rest of the DrunkCyclists have a great fucking race tonight!!! Next year I will be there! Crank this one up.by
