Cyclists are the biggest sandbaggers...

Cyclists are the biggest sandbaggers and secret trainers around They'll say anything to soften you up for the kill. Don't let this happen you. Study this handy rider's phrasebook to find out what they really mean.

When they say: "I'm out of shape"
Translation: I ride 400 miles a week and haven't missed a day since the Ford Administration. I replace my 11-tooth cog more often than you wash your shorts. My body fat percentage is lower than your mortgage rate.

When they say: "I'm not that into competition. I'm just riding to stay in shape"
Translation: I will attack until you collapse in the gutter, babbling and whimpering. I will win the line sprint if I have to force you into oncoming traffic. I will crest this hill first if I have to grab your seat post, and spray energy drink into your eyes.

When they say: "I'm on my beater bike"
Translation: I had this baby custom-made in Tuscany using titanium blessed by the Pope. I took it to a wind tunnel and it disappeared. It weighs less than a fart and costs more than a divorce.

When they say: "Its not that hilly"
Translation: This climb lasts longer than a presidential campaign. Be careful on the steep sections or you'll fall over--backward. You have a 39x23 low gear? Here's the name of my knee surgeon.

When they say: "You're doing great, honey."
Translation: You, lard ass, I'd like to get home before midnight. This is what you get for spending the winter decorating and eating chocolate. I should of married that cute Cat 1 racer when I had the chance.

When they say: "This is a no-drop ride"
Translation: I'll need an article of your clothing for the search-and-rescue dogs.

When they say: "It's not that far"
Translation: Bring your passport

Kilw da Shellfish

What better way to Celebrate J.C.'s birthday than to eat at Red Lobster?

No, not that J.C.. Jan-A and C-rad's.

What better day than Friday the 13th?

When? Oh, how about 6:30pm? Should I make reservations or should I have reservations about this?

Wanna XC Race in Iowa?

Anybody up for a road trip to Waverly, IA? I got an invitation from Jeff Kervove and I would love to try my legs on some different soil.

It's a day after the Swanson race, so it would be easy to jump in the car and make it a Saturday Nite in Des Moine. I have never been there.
Plus if you are new to the MTB racing it is good to go somewhere where they don't know you:)
I am talking with experience...

I am getting in my race mood as you can tell:))
I hope, I will feel the same about it tomorrow, when it comes to my sprint training in the rain...

This weekend, I have the choices between THREE RACES: Pedal in the Pasture on Saturday, Lake Manawa Weekend,
and a Heartland Race Series Race,
at Crowder State Park on April 15th.

Sunday Ride

Angry bridge perhaps? Haven't been out to Wilderness in a while...looks like someone has been having fun. Either a big bonfire is planned or someones interpretation of Devils Tower.
