Had a great couple days on the bike. For those racing the Battle Royale at Platte River S.P. this weekend it's perfect out there. Anne and I got an early jump late Tuesday afternoon and headed out. The lot was already filling up by the time we got there. Trail conditions are PERFECT. Weeds are still low, but the trees are a perfectly filled in. Dirt conditions were tacky with tons of grip. Two laps with Anne, one and a half with Rafal and a last blast through Roller Coaster, Yun2 and the Gully with Nate and Clark. Clark was on a pretty good looking proto Tomac 29 full suspension??? Interesting. All you marathoners better watch out too, Rafal was killing it on his first lap, if rides like that on Saturday he'll be battling for a podium position.
Yesterday was the weekly OMA midtown Wednesday worlds throw down. Kev put in some well timed attacks to split the group. I gave a few of my own and felt pretty good. This kid named Bryan Redemske is getting quicker each week, I love watching folks steadily improve. There's quite a few that continue to impress on a weekly basis. Noticeably absent were Shim and Lucas, and the word on the street is Paul Webb is due back soon. More horsepower to suffer behind.
Did I mention I'm still having way too much fun on the bike? Well I am.
Skip is jumping on the program, I'm excited for him and Susan. It's a life changer. A very good life changer.
