This was suppose to be a time to reflect on the past weekends accomplishments or failures. I was going to spend 2 weeks relaxing with the kids as Rene was enjoying a working vacation in Moses Lake, Washington. Plans are meant to be altered. Now I have been scheming for the next race/event. Lucky for me that from here to the middle of December there is some sort of race – mountain, road, or cross.
What’s next? I am not sure. I wish I could make Dirty Kanza work but Rene arrives home on the 19th and runs a marathon on the 21st. I have done the math and decided that sleep deprivation and driving through western Kansas/eastern Colorado would not be a good idea. I will be signing up for the EnduroSnob Epic in November even though their are USGP CX races scheduled for that weekend in Boulder.
I think my next focus will be the Rocky Mountain Omnium. It consists of an uphill time trial that I may do fixed or at least single speed, a circuit race that is less than a mile from the house, and a twisty crit in downtown Golden. First I need to get some speed in the legs. From there the summer is wide open with the Firecracker 50, Crested Butte 100, Mountain States Cup, Winter Park Series, and many ACA races.
The weather has not been conducive for hauling small children around in the trailer so time has been spent on the trainer trying to work last weeks kinks out. Having spent many mornings throughout the winter on it, I find it hard to motivate to awake before the kids and put in a workout.
On another note, I was surfing around and found an article from a local guy on adding a disc brake adapter to rear hub for mounting up a fixed gear. I found this interesting as my DT Swiss hubs can accommodate this type of setup with their adapter. Boone Ti is the only one I have found who makes a disc brake cog. This way I don’t have to keep switching wheel sets to ride fixed. These are the things I find instead of doing domestic chores when Rene is away.
Is anybody having nightmares about worms?
Time for more coffee and maybe then I'll do some laundry. nah.....
