Well no racing for me this weekend.
We had a nice long Tandem ride on Saturday and a ride to Carnation for Coffee on Sunday, I was glad I wasn't racing 'cause I felt like poop until I got my Coffee!
Then I watched some Golf, hoping Padraig Harrington (Joey's Cousin) might win the masters, but alas it was not to be. I have been very pleased to see my favorite Football team, Liverpool, doing well lately, though they are too far behind Man U and Chelsea in the English league, they just need to not loose too badly to PSV on weds and they are in the Champions League Semi Finals. This is REAL football, I'm talking about, you might know it as soccer; -)
Anyway we went to see the Boat Street crit on Sunday evening, and I was sorry to see it rain for those guys, though glad I wasn't out there. Poor Chad Nik obvoiusly spent too much time in warm weather, cuz he got dropped from the break. The only reason that happened was too few clothes on no way was he getting dropped, he's too good a crit rider for that.
The race was quite exciting, Russell Sevenson had a good attack with about 6 mins to go, but in the end it came down to a 6 man sprint, and of course CYCA (ok Curly?) oblidged, as he ahd done for the $254 crowd prime and the $100 prime a few laps later. What a guy, he's showing no signs of slowing down approaching 40 years young.
I heard one of the masters racers saying when Kenny rode away from them he looked like he was on a training ride, all he was missing was the rack and bag on the back of his bike!!
As of writing I might actually be going to PR with Stoked tomorrow evening!! I think I've been there once in my 12 years racing in the Seattle Area, so look out!
