Regardless Of Circumstance

If 24 hour racing isn't hard enough already, try doing it through non-stop pouring rain. As of right now it is looking like we may be in for a little more than we bargained for. It has been raining all day and the all faithful weather man is calling for snow and sub freezing temperatures tomorrow night with an 80% chance of showers through out the day...... Bring it.

Regardless of the circumstances, the festival atmosphere is a much needed break from the intense NORBA XC scene. Every year around this time, as the leaves start to change and the smell of the aspen trees start to take over, I am reminded of why I define myself as a cyclist. This is as good as it gets....

Stay tuned as I will be updating throughout the Kona Global 24 Hour World Championships here in Granby, CO as we try to hold on to all 10 toes and 10 fingers.

Quick shout out to my boy Barry who never forgets let the beat drop and kick it full throttle.

This is the toughest kind of race I can imagine. I am in awe of this event, and your participation in it.

As I write this, you are an hour and a half into it. By the time it's over, I will have helped Kate clean the house, helped make and eat dinner, fed the cat, taken out the trash, watched the end of the Iowa Syracuse game (go Hawks), drank some beer, watched Austin City Limits, gotten a good night's sleep, made and eaten breakfast, fed the cat again, read the New York Times, paid some bills, and gassed up the MG.

I would normally think of this as a productive weekend. In light of what you are doing, I realize I am slacking.

Nick, never accept the mundane.

I'm proud to call you my nephew, but I'm more proud to call you my friend.

You are absolutely right about the world championships in Georgia.... the Kona Global Series is hosting its own definition of the 24 hour worlds.... the whole 24 hour scene has different titles within different series. If you are not confused now than I didn't do my job..... wheewww
