Tailwinds Forever



... is how Greg Lemond signed this poster for me back in the day, and those words still vibrate between my ears. I envision that is how it feels to be at the top of your game, almost effortless, as if there is a 30 mph force at your back that only you can feel. Something to aspire to... (btw this is random but that sweet pin is compliments of Mike Curiak's garage).



Unfortunately today I felt like my brakes were sticking, seriously, I think they were. No way could I have simply felt like a pile of poo, that couldn't be it. I must have had a headwind the entire time... or maybe this new seat I am trying out is just too heavy, or maybe it was that extra 4 oz of water I was carrying. It is never your own fault or the bottle of wine you enjoyed last night talking.... in the words of the retro "Chain Smoke" movie, "Tequila tonight, tomorrow we ride!".



This is one of those new "Scratch and Freeze" photos. Seriously, scratch your screen until you can feel how cold it is here.

Hey Nick! I'm sorry I scratched as much as I could no dice! It's still warm over here! :)

I believe the quote, "Tequila tonight, tomorrow we ride!", is actually from the even more retro bike movie "Pulp Traction".

It looks chilly up there!! Good luck training, hope you're having fun.
