This Stray Dog Freedom



This past weekend I felt absent, as if I was suppose to be doing something, somewhere, anywhere but here. For the first time in two years I skipped a stop on the NORBA National tour of champions. I know, I know, big deal right... well in the world of bike racing you are constantly haunted by the harsh reality that "you are only as fast as your last race".

I have learned to swallow this reality and move on.... at least for this weekend.

BTW, I have been rolling on a rigid hardtail this past week and all i have to say is that I am thankful this sport has progressed. Give Paul Turner a high five next time you see him....

Looks like Chimney Gulch. Such a good climb. Did you guys go to Apex for the descent or back down the gulch?
