Laying down a base

Riding has been challenging lately at best, considering all of the rain, but it has not been impossible. Sunday's have been extra good for riding and the last three had me on the bike for 3+hours each, along with riding during the week almost every day. Just this week, the trail rides have been replaced with road rides. Kinda scary, but I actually like riding the road bike a lot. Just need to take the time to clean the dirt and grime from the drivetrain, most of this grime approaching a year of tenure on the chain and cogs.

I am looking forward to the 2010 racing season. Some decisions to make, some easy, some not so easy, but all in all it should be a good season.

Take a minute to go check out Delaware's favorite junior national champ in action here and feel free to drop a dollar or two in the bucket while you are there if you find it appropriate:

Alternative Funding Methods?

It costs a lot of money to send a Jr to Europe to race. Here is Lauri supporting her son's Euro trip. Source:

The Road to Glory starts now

Thinking a lot about 2010 and where I want to be in racing. There are still some final decisions to be made, and they all be challenging. Between fighting a cold and the constant rain all every day, riding outside has been a challenge.

Rode my first long ride yesterday in a long time, a 3.5 hour tour of Fair Hill starting and ending from home. Had great company for the ride, but it seems like we went up almost every hill in the place, minus the long down and up lead-in to Skip a trail. Good times.

I will begin to lay out a plan for next year, but the mext two months looks a lot like this: Long slow rides with a little intensity once per week!

Oh yeah, go check this out and drop a few coins in the bucket for ol' Jeb.
