I'll butcher names, but usually with a Euro flair.
Besides bad press is better than no press at all, right?
Mollusk, I've been back in Orlando 7 weeks.
Working, training, hoping house sells.
Family dealing with cold weather up in NY.
I am a Florida boy, so happy in warm sun.
See you guys soon.

So teetopkram had a bad accident in 3's. So sorry Mark. SPort sucks on days like that.
Derrick aka Veloboy971 looked good out there in P12's.
We were both in the front sPlit Sat. His team took second. My team took third.
Then on Sun he got in winning break with two of my teammates. We won.
I felt decent after 8 weeks training. Helped my boys. ASV represented well.
See you guys at Gator weekend. I'll try not to butcher names.
Schanze? Like Shans?

I was there for the 50+ RR today and retired with a mechanical after three times around. I was in the pack the whole time, but my shifting was being extremely weird so I pulled out. I had no confidence that my bike was sound. I didn't want to be a danger. It is OK because today's agenda was just to pin on a number and remember what it feels like to race. I hadn't raced since last February due to work, travel, and sciatica. Now I am woefully out of shape, but better than 4 months ago.

I'll be there next weekend to support UF with my entry fees. No aspirations for glory. I'm looking to race with a purpose much later in the season.

I will make the effort to put face to BF moniker next weekend.

Nope. I did a 50 mile mtb event (Ididaride) as final prep for the 6 hours of Santos. A couple of days after paying my reg fee I was told I have to work the Santos weekend so I was conflicted, but decided $52 already spent was the way to go.

BTW, I'll be at Gainesville, but then won't be at the next two weekends since I'm working. If anything pops up on the 25th I'll be there, otherwise it's either Albany or Chain of Lakes before I can race again.

I'll be in California for Chain of Lakes/Albany. And I'll miss the Kentucky BB game.

Thinking seriously of doubling up on crits this coming Sunday (even though I hate them) and skipping the Saturday races. The Vanderbilt game is Saturday and I do want to see that one.

It's the same deal on the track as last year, right? The brick section downtown isn't my favorite, but I know you can go wide through the exit and hop on the sidewalk if needed which avoids the raised manhole covers IIRC.

I missed the race last weekend due to illness... hopefully this sinus crap will be gone by then.

Saw you announcing the Collegiate C race ending while I was standing in the line that never seemed to move to sign up of the geezer ITT and Sunday crit. Once I got through it was last lap and decided that you had more important things to do at the time, so I didn't introduce myself then.

I will be there Sunday, but only for grins. I'm not a "critter", but I'll give my $'s to the UF team cause.
