MW in recovery mode Sunday
It wasn't the best weekend of riding ever here in Lincoln... In two words, 'cold' and 'wet' pretty much sum it up. Yeah, that looks like snow in the pictures, but don't be fooled - the water was barely frozen. Oh well. It's been a pretty nice late-winter, after all.
The weather this weekend has me really looking forward to our Fruita trip coming up at the end of the month!! I had the Trails Illustrated map laid out on the bike room floor for quite a bit of 'study time' late last night... One ride I'd really like to do this year (for the first time) on the trip is the Edge loop. In fact, for as many times as I've been to Fruita, I can't believe I haven't done it at least once already. Well the time has come... It's Edge loop or bust in 2006!!
Oh, and congratulations to those who competed in the 3- and 6-hour race at Landahl Park in KC Saturday. Of note, our Lincoln GB, MW, finished 7th overall in the 6-hour race on his RIGID SINGLESPEED 29er! That's not 7th in the singlespeed class -- that's 7th place OVERALL! Way to go my Brother!!! Also, our GB from the north, RF, finished 4th overall. As MW tells it, RF pulled off a very nice comeback from a flat tire to earn his top-5 podium finish. Way to start the season RF! Congratulations!
