I lied


When I said that track was really hard, and maybe even as hard as cross....I lied.

Cross is still harder.

Infinitely so.

The race this weekend was like a dusty slap in the face.

Whhaaaaaack! How easily you forget, let me remind you with a little of this (SLAP!) and a little of that (SLAP!) You think your silly velodrome training can prepare you? Bah! I spit mud on your fixed gear and dribble snool on your fancy track bars. And then I show you some real suffering.

Yeah, so it was hard. Crazy hard. The course was super fun and I dug the zippyyippies on the backsection. But the barriers, the damn barriers, I had forgotten how much I hated them. Especially that one little lonely barrier after all the 180s, that barrier I had special hate for.

I can't wait for the next race.

i still like grass. it hurts less when you fall on the fast turns.

and barriers are ok when they're on the grass.

but for christ sakes, that sand.

yeah man, track is EASY. alls you do is pedal, and sometimes you get to do it behind a motorcycle. smooth surface...no turning...no shifting....no spending sunday afternoon scrapping dog shit off your tires. you need some mad skillz to do cross-- sabine, i definitely went "OOO OOOO" about a thousand times at fairfax. i was thinking about you each time, cause you like to do that at the track.

Thats VBs sufferface...CCCX next top model perhaps? sometimes there is a giggle or two when she suffers by.

we always thought she wasn't suffering, then she bought that garmin...

sick huh, I think she should scream for her mama like the rest of us, and where is the drool?

Where do you find barriers that don't hit you mid-thigh?

cross hurts.
