The race season on the horizon

We signed up for Crank the Kanc as JJ mentioned. I almost didn't get in as I'm an idiot and thought that registration was on Saturday night, not 12:01 Saturday morning. But the cycling gods smiled upon me and I did get in.

Me training this weekend consisted of competing in the Spread Eagle World Championships up at Attitash, it was fun- but it's been awhile since I've gone off a big jump and I was not looking to pretty! Needless to say my knees are a bit sore from pounding them on the landings, but it was fun and I stayed upright!

Sunday I skied at Cranmore with the girls and it was good, Emma has come a long way and Lillo is on her own just checking in from time to time, kinda crazy.

I did ride in again today, so that was good. The scary part I have a 42x23 as my low gear and the North South road used all of that gear. Granted there was a headwind but in the summer that is a 53x18 section of road no problem- man I've got work to do!

K is going to race CTK this year so that should be fun, she'll have to spend some time on the trainer as she's not up for riding in crap weather and bad roads- and I don't see us having anything but that for the next 6 weeks or so (at least the bad roads- the weather is good today).

So that's my story. Waiting to see what the UCI does with all the Paris Nice riders. Should be interesting. Keep waiting to see my boy Tyler show up on a results sheet at some point. Still trying to figure out why the UCI is hell bent on support Contador despite his link to Purteo- but that is a conversation that just goes round and round.

If anyone is in the market for a 26" wheeled single speed let me know- I've got a 19" specialized S-works M2 that is set up that way and need to sell it to make cash for parts for the Mamasita. Just let me know! It'll go cheap, or if you've got a MTB crankset, 175mm that you need to get rid of we might have a trade opportunity.
