So this is probably old news to you voracious cyclingnews.com readers but I noticed that Joachim Parbo pulled out the "W" at his national champs. Why is this meaningful? 'Cause he is bar none one on the nicest guys I've ever met. Sincerely. He came to the Republic this season and stayed with Chris G to get immersed in the scene here and trained with us on the Wed AM workouts until he left to go back to the mother land and race the GvA's, SP's and WK's. Indeed he's a fast mo fo but super fun to dice it up with (when I could stay with him before exploding violently). His battles at the Rez with Wells, Baker et al were rad. Check 'em here:
(Can't access the exact album at the moment so search...).
In any event, "good on ya, Joachim!" Glad to see you'll be in the flag kit this year. Come back to Boulder!
Whoa. Anyone reading this blog certainly has hit the daily news digest on www.cyclingnews.com already and seen this. Ho-lee sheeit. This would be insane. Logistically it would be relatively harmless for the Eauros to come over as it would be early in the season but ripe for the US season. I would certainly go and race Masters events in RI if a true WC is to materialize in RI. Would you?
That's the sound Cccccccccherben De Ge Knecccccccccccccccchet made when he imploded on the super muddy NL champs today to allow Lars "I'm a stud 'cause I run a 42t single ring like my main man Greg from mudandcowbells" Boom to kill it and take the red white an blue tricolor. Reeechard could've pulled it off I feel all 99 Worlds style like when he last took the stripes. Anyhoo, here's a YouTube to distract you from work tomorrow you cross sluts:
I'm selling my 06 team CX frame/fork/Ritchey Pro Carbon seat post. Awesome bike and cared for like a baby. $500 bucks. I have a bunch of random Cross parts from seasons past if you are looking to get into the spot and need some as well to hang on this frame.
Fun fun fun today. 20 degrees max and windy as a beeatch...but I had to get out. Too much rollers and Rally Sport indoor madness. Rolled two hours through the frozen wilderness. The bike paths were great and I hooked up a quite a bunch. Lots of solid intervals through deep snow. The paths were like tunnels of trees and snow. Perfect.
It's a runner's course tomorrow folks, I predict my main baseball hat wearin' giant Erwin V is going to take the BK. Maybe I should exhale the binger as Eddy Nijs has torn the flesh off of every linving soul who's lined up this year against him, but methinks Erwin is ramping up to his usual late year form ramp up.
Vee shall zee....
