I can't believe it. Last night I thought I was having an allergy attack, even though i don't have allergies. Turns out I have caught a cold. Are you kidding me. I am starting my break tomorrow and now I'm sick. That sucks!
The race today went better then yesterday. No mechanical problems and I was in the lead for much of the race. Page had to pit 2 times which gave me a good gap but I couldn't hold it. We were together at the end and I slipped my pedal on the last up hill remount and that was the race. I caught back up but less then a minute to go he worked me over in the sprint. Rude got 3rd and matched his best UCI CX result ever. Timmy J was there but after getting food poisoning in Vegas and lacking motivation for the race he wasn't having a normal day. on top of that, he rolled a tire, I'm going to have to harass Stu about that. At least mine was a tire failure, not a a gluer failure.
Anyway, I'm sitting in the airport of course but at least I'm getting home on Sunday night. I hope.
Tomorrow I have a Tee time, I hope I wake up feeling better and can make it plus the big garage sale is on Tuesday. I hate getting sick. At least being sick at home is better then being sick on the road. This is too much sick talk.
I got a message from Maple the other night looking to go out drinking, glad to see he isn't on the wagon.
This is the time of the year Meg and I do our annual ride. She isn't a big MTBer even though she has all the gear. Every year she suits up and we go for a ride. A few years ago she even did a race.
I wonder if this guy is going to be happy to see me, he's not afraid of getting sick....
