Number SEVEN today. Wow, 7 weeks have already gone by (and I skipped a week due to group travel) and each week the group has grown.
OK, there's good and bad to that. Good to see the growth, bad in that we're seriously going to have to split this up. Cat Johnson did a great job working with the parks and recs to validate and acknowledge our use so for the time being this training ride is still good to go. nice work Cat. We'll need to pay attention carefully to our use in the coming weeks.
So, as you can see, no pics today. Sorry! Home boy needed to travel light today as I had some post-CX-group training to do that involved some, howyousay, v-e-r-t-i-c-a-l. Wanted to be backpack-less today.
At the CX throw down, 83 people went off in a cloud of dust and I rolled with the top guys comfortably for the duration of the session. Frisco made the legs feel good today for sure. Pete L went super hard from the get-go which was good and got a split within the first few minutes. We rolled as a group of 5-8 or so for most of the time. Brandon laid down some law towards the end after his back to back wins this weekend and finished strong. I think he's got some interesting performances locked up in those legs at a USGP coming to a city near you this Fall. Matt P and the WB had a nice bridge effort to me on the last lap and they took me at the end. Bastages. Ha! All, in all, everyone looked good and the speeds are climbing week by week. Sager's looking great as is this guy from Jelly Belly who I don't know. Troy and I traded the good paints, all NASCAR style and such this AM. Awesome. How are the jewels, Troy? Ha! Sorry I missed your B-day man! Forgot to say that in person when I saw you!
I saw a preview of the November UCI courses DBC are putting on here in Boulder. Let's say that Harlow Platts you should be familiar with from last year, but the Rez is looking totally different. It'll be good training for me for Mol given all the sand. Oops, did I say that?
Last note: For Boulder CX geeks: DO NOT TRAIN ON HARLOW PLATTS! We will certifiably lose that gorgeous race course if anyone continues to practice there. We will find you.
Thanks for reading and 'cross on.
