I see how it is.. I try and make you look fast, and you make me look like a crazyperson (because clearly I had nothing to do with it :P).

I inadvertently ended up only taking "comedy" photos of you during your race ... so unless I cropped your head out of the shot there was no saving and of them. Next week I'll Photoshop lasers shooting out of your ass or something. ;)

Edit: Found a "normal" one.

Great stuff! We've had one weekend of racing, and some underground stuff, but the real fun starts this weekend!

Anyone who lays in the mud to get just the right angle for the best shot is alright with me. :D

Our first 'cross race is Sunday, in Chicago (somewhere).

I have to work for the local Wed night series. Major bummage. But I should be able to get three Missoula races in at least, and hopefully some out of towners.

I'll try and borrow a camera for tomorrow's practice. Tonight's left my legs really sore. I forgot how fun this stuff is!

speaking of the "underground stuff," do you happen to know when/where the DFL series is taking place? i used to have a good source for intel last yr but it dried up. now i only hear about them after the fact when ppl post all their pics on flickr, and i sit around wishing i were there.

Here's a couple from Pain on the Peak this last Saturday. New venue and race put on by my team. Very dusty, hot, and tough.

My season opener: StarCrossed in Redmond WA. It was the perfect cross race; 50 degrees, rain, and mud:;init:.JPG;init:.JPG

I just found this awesome photo of Lithuania:

^^^ryand... i saw you at charm city but couldn't remember your name so i just kinda started at you awkwardly instead. did you race?

ryand 09-26-08 11:26 AM

Yeah, I raced. I did well my first couple of laps, but then my cold caught up to me. I'm feeling a lot better this week, probably 90%. We'll see if my lungs can keep up with my legs this go around. Come say hi at Ed Sander, there will be a beer in the cooler for you.

*new*guy 09-26-08 12:45 PM

right on. lilypons is a great venue and with the ground saturated from this rain it will be even better.

ryand 09-26-08 01:10 PM

note: i don't drink, so don't return the favor. i will just have beers because i'm a nice guy like that. see you sunday. also, i don't think i know your real name, so don't be surprised if i just call you 'hey' or '[colour] jersey' for a few weeks. sorry - i'm not awesome at names sometimes.

*new*guy 09-26-08 02:06 PM

^^ i don't drink either so no worries. my name is your name but with a b in front. see ya

ryand 09-26-08 02:23 PM

i hate your name, that **** confuses me!

well then, you can have one of my root beers. fancy.

cardstock 09-26-08 02:25 PM

ryan, stop being a sissy and pound a can of high life already

chimblysweep 09-26-08 02:30 PM

wow, ben's on bike forums again? i think we're all having a slow work week...

ryand 09-26-08 04:19 PM

actually, i had a super busy work week, but it was all 'fix this' type tasks, which i hate, so i procrastinated a lot... enough to bring me back to bikeforums...
