Temptations. Killing me. I'd have gone with this one though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5CfRsmtQ44

Nice work. Your form's coming along nicely. Field's a little slower here in TX, huh? It's gotten a lot faster in the last 15 years though.

Yeah, I edited that one together from my Media Center recording of the ToC. I was using it to coach my state TTT teammates.

It's plenty fast and hard, some very good racers here. Back in Cali though there are a few Master's guys that are such monsters you end up having to figure out all kinds of things just to survive. And I'm catching a break right now because I'm just "some dude".

Rolling up to the line in cutoffs and a tank top does work.

RacerX has been in Texas for three months, told me he was gonna lay low for awhile, under the radar. I'm getting emails from my mates in Austin asking me 'who the hell is this guy?!' So much for layin' low! BTW I think the bike has little to do with it.
