    I might be there for the 3/4 race if another teammate goes. Does that mean I'll be racing against you?

    Maybe. I just saw the schedule.
    There's a 3/4 race and a 2/3 race and a masters race. Maybe I can get 3 races in.

    Got a couple friends going. One racing for (I think he's still with them) DLP, the other for Inland Construction.

    I'm in for 2 races. No masters for me.

    Heard you were in the P123 at Sanford- didn't recognize you with the new bike and all That was my first race as a 3. Tough initiation...

    But it's good that you toed the line considering you could have just done the 3/4 race instead.

    This is me.

    Got word that our Manager will let me do as many races as I "can handle."
    Hmmm?

    Master 35+ first. With Ryan J., John P., and Charlie B. possibly racing, as well as 5 more of their mates controlling the field, I stand very little chance. If I can get into a break with Ryan, then I may be able to hold on. Last year him and John rolled away and lapped the field. Crossed the line together.

    Cat3/4 race 10 minutes later. If I don't expend too much energy in the Masters' race, I may be able to get in a break with a few friends that I know can stay away easily. (It's always good to have friends on other teams. Never burn bridges and always be friendly on and off the track. Bike racing is about teamwork. Teamwork from different teams. Non racers still scratch their heads about that. "You mean, you were working with rivals?")

    Cat2/3 race 2 hours later. Last year two strong Cat2s attacked and rolled away easily and early on. They worked perfectly together staying away. Not one guy challenged during the whole race. It was like they knew it was too late. Halfway through the race, the two in the break looked so smooth and relaxed it was like a ride around the park. And they were half a lap ahead. If I have the gumption to attempt this race I don't expect to have enough left in the tank to do too much. Hopefully I will hang on and have fun.

    I'll work with you in the 3/4 if you're still feeling up to it. It'll be my first race of the day, so I should have some legs.

    I wouldn't think of it. Let's work together. Try to make breaks happen and stuff.

    I thought I saw that Liz Hatch was going to show up.


    I'll see if she will autograph my ripped abs. Or remind me of the restainer order.

    Unfortunately I have an exam literally during the race so can't make it. Oh yeah, that and the fact that I haven't raced since March (or raced successfully since February.) Too bad since it's a great race. Don't worry, I am only a few weeks away training-wise and you will see me out on the circuit soon.

    Good. We need to see you out there more often.

    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    She hit the pavement hard. Hyperventilated, maybe broke her wrist. Not good. She was in a two woman break to win when it happened.

    Are you serious?

    What the freak happened?

    Not sure what happened really. I took place, ironically, on an easier turn. The nasty turn, before the climb, was right after where she took a spill.

    Her twitter feed says she had problems breathing from the humidity and pollen.
