So i wake up at 6 AM to the sound of my cellphone ringing… its my wife… 6 AM calls from the wife are NEVER GOOD when you are away from home.  But that’s another story…

So Squidly and I arrive at Pineland farms around 830 ready to race. (LOL)  MY DOG was is cold… quick change, register and hit the trail… and what a surprise, they made the course a little “easier”.  Well, if you aren’t fat and out of shape it might have been.  Same start, down hill on the pavement.  Hard right, hard left and then the barriers… off camber then into the woods!  Another off camber, accross the berm, then back into the woods.  What a nice ride down, back up, down then onto the run up.  Half the size of last year, but still sucked.  Prolly has a lot to do with the extra tonage on my ass.  once back on the bike after the run up things should be good right?? NOT… seems that you have to ride uphill for a bit.  One of those hills that gets steeper and longer every damn time you have to do it.

so it was a good race, Squidly got 5th, i had and 11th.  then came the BEER and sitting in the sun watching everyone else suffer!!!

in all a GREAT day to be on a bike!

Ok, so i dont usually Rant about politics in public just because… But I have had enough!

so you want to know how bad the economy is…

well this “Joe six pack” just went to “main street”, not “wall Street” to buy a USA made Chevy for his stay at home Soccer mom.  With my 800+ credit score, financing with a company that I have received and paid off 5 car loans in the last 5 years, i STILL had to go through a new credit check and employment verification.

thank you Washington folks!!!

McCain / Palin 2008!!!  Please Give me 4 more years of this crap!!!

Guess my wife needs to be a Hockey mom instead of a soccer mom!

My political rant of the day!
