knocking on wood

Two road races this year and two single-digit finishes. That feels good.

Saturday at the SOYOCO I finished third, the butt-end of a three-man breakaway (the race was 35 miles long--14 laps over a completely non-flat 2.5 mile circuit). Excluding mtb, cx, and time trial, that's the first time I've finished in the money since Easter weekend '07, and the first time I've been on the podium since August '06.

So...maybe after a couple of years worth of crappy results I'm on my way to a decent season (if I can keep my collarbones intact). I sure hope so.

Some pics from Saturday...here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.


In other news, the first ever SU Youth Bike Rodeo was a success. Details here, pictures here.


TNR tonight, 5:30 pm. Ride today. It will dull the pain from another disappointing Jazz loss later on.

Well done on your two "single digit finishes." I hope you have many more this season.
On another note, I am interested in your opinion of the now infamous Theo Bos / Darryl Impey crash at the Tour of Turkey.

I just watched the video yesterday. Crazy.

To me, it sure looks like the dude just reached over and pulled the guy down. I've never seen anything like it.

The bike rodeo looks cool. Seems like a great event. Good to see that Audrey and Marian are following in the footsteps and getting on the bike.
