Look at my crotch rocket!!!! Santa Cruz Blur XC...Its fast, it slices through the air like a jet.
Check out my new SOCK GUY wear. They have the coolest shoe covers and arm warmers, and plenty of socks!!!

I just got back from the CCCX race at Ford Ord. I really like these races because you go all out for 2 hours. I never consider myself for the win but I give it my all. The reason I do them id to help me push when Im tired. At least that is my objective. The races there always hurt like hell:) Though I don't know what hell feels like but Im sure its

I was tired from my long time trial ride yesterday. I decided not to work out in the morning before the and stack more fatigue on my body than normal.

The race starts out fast and I always have trouble holding wheels in the first 20 minutes. I entered the first section in the first 5 riders and was in good position. The wind was brutal so I had to give it my all to stay with them and not be left out to suffer. I felt real good and was able to move up a few spots before half way of the first lap of 5 laps total. We were moving alone pretty good and was still in the front group during the second lap and was doing pretty good. Were started moving through riders and there was only a few riders front our group left. I was out front pushing hard when one rider attacked and flew of the front. There was no way I could hold his wheel so I had no choice but had to let him go. About that time I was all alone stuck in the middle of nowhere. There was nobody to work with. I thought for sure another rider was going to catch me because I felt I was slowing down some. I was still passing a lot of people from the riders who left in front of our group and felt strong. So I kept doing my thing and hammering alone. On the last lap, with total amazement I ended up catching the rider that took of on the second lap. I knew he was strong but tired. When in the end I came across the finish line first for my first win of the year....yippee. Always feels good when you WIN!

I feel I'm going in the right direction with the training and I am doing pretty good with my power out put. I still feel I have some improvement to go for the 24 hours of Cool race but have have plenty of day's to ride. Plus I have the 8 hours of boggs next weekend!!!! So i have some resting to do to get ready. I have one hard workout next week of about 4 hours on Tuesday doing the sea otter course the its all about focus and rest....
