Just 21 easy payments of a $1.33
Saturday, May 23, 2009 - Race Reports
Call now and we'll throw in some free coffee.

$1.33 a minute, that's how much it cost me to ride the Calavares Road ITT today. But as I learned in Vegas a while back, don't expect much unless you're paying at least a dollar a minute, and it held true again today.

The course was out and back with some rollers and a climb at the end, very different from dead flat Putah Creek. I had a pretty good day and won with a 21:02. That got me some coffee and a gift certificate to Cyclepath. Tyler Dibble, after talking smack about the new PaulMach.com, finished second. Karma's a bitch, huh Tyler?

Afterwords, the wife and I headed into San Jose for some food and then went shopping at Anthropologie. I reminded my wife that I didn't get any prize money today but she responded with a quick, "I have a full time job." I never have a response to that one so I just mumbled something about saving for our future and went to go sit with the other men.

Tomorrow holds the Classic Mt. Hamilton Road Race. Should be good, unless the burrito I just ate starts looking for an exit somewhere on the climb.

For the record, my homemade fairing came out of my helmet during the TT... that must have cost me at least a minute. Therefore, I will take away from this a moral victory
