Anyone want a dog?

My father is trying to find a home for his buddie's dog. Here is the ad. Let me know if you want the dog.

* Free to good home.
* Excellent guard dog.
* Owner cannot afford to feed him anymore, as there are no more thieves,murderers, or molesters left in the neighborhood for him to eat.
* Most of them knew him as 'Holy Shit.'


I have a HUGE announcement tomorrow...you just wait...this one is a doozie.

catching up

Wow it has been a while since I posted, I guess I just haven't had much to say. I have just been working, training a ton, and thinking about practicing my bassoon. This past weekend I went to Asheville to train with Andy and $Rich$. It was sweet and a ton of fun.
On saturday we rode 130 miles in the mountains and it only took a measly 7 hours, it was epic for sure. At a gas station i was so hungry that I ate a corn dog, it was amazing for sure. Anyway it ended up being a bonk fest for us as the last 20 miles seemed to take FOREVER.
On sunday we celebrated easter by doing the Off Road Assault On Mount Mitchell course. It is a pretty epic mountain bike ride. I made the mistake of riding my singlespeed, which was way overgeared for that course. I walked a ton and had to stop and rest a number of times. The ride is awesome tho and it took around 6 hours, i really enjoyed watching Rich ride his mountain bike. I am smiling just thinking about it...
Check out this blog, i think it is HILARIOUS and I can't tell wether it is offensive or or not...

Chasing back from one of many flat tires...

This is what happens when you flat and then have to chase through the race caravan. Check out the quality of roads and the cool caravan vehicles. Thanks to DS Chris Jones for the video...

home

So I am back in NC. It is good to be home . Sorry those posts look so messed up, i had to send them via text message and that is what they look like. Anyway the rest of the race ended up good, we all got sick with some sort of cold and 2 of the guys got a stomach virus. I am feeling okay, but have a pretty nasty cold right now.


Anyway as far as the rest of the race goes, I got a 10th in the Time Trial and only lost by 21 seconds to first place. The cool thing was that I wasn't using any aero equiptment except a pair of clip on aerobars. No skinsuit, no aero helmet, no disc, no tt bike. Just my road bike with clip ons on. I was pretty happy with that.


On the final day we tried to set frank up again, but the racers down there don't really ride in straight lines at all. It is scary. Anyway He ended up getting seriously chopped again. Oh well.


We all survived the trip and most importanatly, none of us have broken bones. Phew.




Here are the guys... From the left it is Frank, Alex, Winston, and Keith

















The Power Situation in the DR

















These guys were dressed up for independence day. That is real tar they are wearing. They wouldn't leave until we gave them money...


















The haitian national team was here. Here was one of their bikes, don't think it was UCI legal.


This is how you get guys to the airport with bike boxes. There are 6 bikes in this be plus 6 huge duffles and 7 people in the front...



Overall the trip was amazing. I have some more pics to put up later and I will I promise. It was a great way to start the season. The guys are real cool and it is going to be an outstanding season...
