    My ride today and Conti tires

    I rode out today to Kings for some hill repeats. The weather was crappy, and the road was wet but hey beats the trainer. Anyway after the first repeat I was coming down kings taking it very easy, around 20-25. Next thing I know my front tire completely washes out. Somehow I managed to stay up right, regained control, tire got traction again and I was able to get back in to my lane. I thought I was going down for sure. I am convinced my 4000s saved my azz by regaining grip fast. Still it was pretty bad I blew past the double yellow and almost ran off the road. If there was a car going up I would have been a hood ornament. My best guess I hit one of those elfing tar patches. Anyway thumbs up for Coninental 4000s tires.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!

    Looking for a chateau. Twenty-one rooms but one will do. I don't want to buy it. I just want to rent it for an hour or two.

    Yep, that would be my guess also. I freaken hate those things. Sunday was fun also, front went flat while going down 84. Long story short, front rim chewed up a sidewall in the tire. heh On a bright side, an excuse to get new set of wheels. The rear one is not staying true these days anyway.
