Well, i am just about to finish up my thanksgiving break. it was a much needed break but too bad i was working 3 of the 5 days i had off oh well money is money. did a little bit of riding, then the shifter on my bike broke so i had to use my brothers bike for 2 races. i am replacing those shifters this week though. also my phone broke so i have hardly spoke to any of my friends for like a week i have been a lost soul which is sad but whatever. i raced in colorado springs which was ok, the course was ridiculously long and dusty. i had a good race, i stayed with the young clif bar kid who usually beats me but i was a few yards behind him the whole race but just couldnt pass him. i lost one spot at the end to finish around fifth overall and first in my category. today i just raced foothills cross number 2 which was an icy mudfest if that makes sense. the grassy spots were slick and icy but then the single track parts got sloppier and sloppier every lap. i finished 9th overall and maybe second or third in my category. atleast this weekend i will get to ride my own bike at the races and not have a terrible back cramp post race now.i found an awesome deal on some ultegra shifters, normally they run about 200 dollars but i found some brand new ones for 50 shit yeah.

A memory filled week.

raced last saturday. it was pretty nice, it was a pretty hard course. i crashed once, nothing serious but i lost one place. i finished 9th out of about 60 so i got myself a few much needed BCR points. the blacksheep kid that i have been trading blows with for the past few weeks didnt even finish so that made me feel was a mountain bike suited course with bumpy spots little sand pits a few barrier sections a run up and a fast paced paved section. i had some fun. looking forward to table mountain and colorado springs this weekend, should be lots of fun. i also made the decision last night that i will buy a new salsa mamasita 29er mountain bike. what parts it will consist of is yet to be decided. it will drain my savings but i will superbly enjoy riding atop such a fine machine.

A cup filled weekend

Pretty good weekend on the bike. the redline cup was on saturday and it was tons of fun. i had a good warm up and enjoyed the course. my start was good and i moved up throughout the race to finish within the top ten. but i will get definite results up sometime soon. I wish i could have stayed and watched the pro race but i had to work. my bro told me ryan trebon won the mens and katie compton won womens. the pro turnout was almost as good as the fan turn out. Today was the boulder cup. it was right behind fairview high school. the juniors race went well, i am not sure what i placed but i will post results soon. i had a bad start but hammered through the barriers, flats, and hills. i rode the sand a couple times when other people werent. some lady from the womens race and i were helping eachother out throughout the race but then i crashed and she pulled away. Katie compton won womens again and ryan trebon won the mens again. the womens race was ok, compton pulled away quick georgia gould took second so it was kind of predictable but fun to watch. the mens race was the same but i thought it was much more fun to watch. i got some good pictures and videos of todd wells barry wicks jeremy powers and tim johnson i tried to get trebon but he was too fast. todd wells was successfully jumping the barriers every lap. brandon dwight had a very good race and i enjoyed watching him. today was a great race to watch.
