Between getting home after midnight yesterday & the weekend's efforts, I'm still dragging ass. I was up yesterday morning at 4:30am hosing down my muddy bike clothes & shoes in the driveway before work. Work sucked. After work I spent 2 hours getting the bikes back to the living, I hate mud.
Where did the summer go? Saturday it'll be October already.
Saturday's start was a mess, TP & I lined up next to each other in the middle & got swallowed up by riders on both sides pinching inward. Unsure how nobody went down on that one? Track was dry & fast. This being my first race of the year, I had a couple moments during the first lap where I said to myself, "oh shit, you can't keep up this pace", but it passed & I got down to the task at hand. I'm not a fan of only racing 40 minutes, Saturday was no exception. I had brought back the guy in 5th, losing to him by inches at the line in a sprint & 4th was just ahead. Needed one more lap...
Always great seeing familiar faces & meeting new people.
Sunday was a mess. My first lap was forgettable. Yard sale dropping into the shire. By the time I had the sloppy course figured out...race over. I had probably dropped back to around 20-25th at some point & had to pick my way back through the field. I'm calling 12th a victory (I don't really believe that).
Omaha Saturday, FoCo the following.

The fully rigid 26 inch commuter at 10,000+...
Barely above 40 degrees, perfect...
Not all biking, some hiking. Steep...
Yep, it was that nice. Highs in the 60's...
As we slowed to 77mph through Sidney, a pterodactyl slowly took flight from the side of the road. It proceeded to fly right into the side of the car. Hit on the back side of the side mirror, shattering the glass. A few feet either way & it would have gone through the front windshield or the side window. Turkey vulture/pterodactyl, same thing...
This mornings commute may be a bit slower with the 36x20 still on there...
