Don't Question the Captain



Ever try to take a picture of wind?! Here is my best attempt.... Ever since I landed back in Colorado I have felt like I have been an unwilling subject to wind tunnel testing. Today's highlight reel clocked me at 50 mph, unfortunately I wasn't peddling. I actually thought about taking my camera out to document the blazing speed on my cycling computer but then I had this little vibration between my ears that reminded me I wanted to live today...



As things for our squad in '06 start to line up, I am reminded that every good army needs a strong leader! Thanks "Poz" for being out go-to man!



One from the Archives: Trek VW 2004 Team Training Camp in Moab, UT

January is the time of year when the majority of the squawk on the group rides is centered around where and when everyone is leaving for their training camps. Ah the training camps, my favorite time of year. A bunch of guys getting together on what feels like an old college "spring break" flashback, only everyone is sober, no one owns a bathing suit and we all wear sunblock.

So starting Jan 26th I will be heading down to Fruita for our squad's first training camp. Two weeks of heavy riding with what is turning out to be a heavy hitting group of Pro's from the NORBA Circuit. BBBRRRAAAAAAAPP

re: "Ever try to take a picture of wind?!"

The next best thing to posting a video would be posting a picture with the sound of the wind. Here's a picture with sound from last year's Patterson Pass Road Race in Northern California. I recorded a movie after I took the picture. I stripped the sound from the movie and posted it with the picture because the picture looked better than the video.

Nick, check my site for pictures from Gould's CD release party. I've got more also. Maybe see if he'll send you a copy.
