    LOL... I got pushed into going straight onto some road while you guys turned... and then I tried finding you guys again, but I mistook another cyclist with a blinkie as one of you guys and followed him back to Dufferin. Oh well...

The problem riding cross against mountain bikers, especially with this many of them on the race circuit- is that they end up passing you on the downhills and technical stuff, and then you end up stuck behind them on the climbs, where you lose all your speed. Mountain bikes and cross bikes are sort of out of phase with one another, like when you keep passing the same TTC bus over and over again, only to have it motor by you at 60 km/hr. The advantage of the cross bike would be on the doubletrack, but I think it wouldn't be anywhere near enough to make up the lost ground. I'd actually love do it anyway, but I don't want to hold the team back if I can help it.

    The other reason is that I am scared of my cross bike since my last crash. Sometimes I think I can hear it taunting me as I walk past it. I know that it secretly yearns to destroy me, and any offspring I may eventually have.
    the course isn't particularly technical but it is still a Mtn bike course. A few of my teammates pre rode it on Mon...said it was really fast. I am on a 11 person corporate team...so I will only get 2 laps...maybe 3...but thats a-o-k with me...more pinting time in the pits.
    Stop by camp 68 for a cold one and some poker.

    Yes a very good idea.

    Is there a Cycle Solutions team? I will keep my eyes out for them. I prolly should have been racing with Master Bates but committed to Marty and Ryans team months ago. Good times regardless. Sorry you can't make it out...work commitments I assume. Stupid work!

    Keith, do you have any of the Soma travel coffee mugs in stock (no handle, sliding flap that goes across the hole in the lid, brushed metal, etc.)?

    I've seen them at Bikes On Wheels.. have you tried there? They're pretty $$$ though. If you're just going to be throwing it in your bag (and not using the handlebar mount) I'd recommend just getting one at MEC. I like mine a lot, but it doesn't hold a heck of a lot of liquid.

    also: I had Franek whip past me again this morning. I think he must be riding about 2 gear-inches taller than me because I have to spin up to the redline to match him and I can't really gain on him... plus his flow be fresh.
