Sunday, May 2, 2010 - Race ReportsJust lost my appitite at breakfast after reading about Ben Day's tape worm. That was a poor choice.
Anyway, the most interesting part of yesterday's crit in Silver City actually happened right before it. A lady came up to me with a picture from the TT, asked me to sign it and gave me a copy.
Cool right? So I quickly rode back to the van to drop it off, yelled something in my excitement and then, at that instant, the van window broke. Here's the picture.
It looked a lot like something hit it, a rock or even an air riffle from somewhere. But it's all good, Jim took care of it and our drive to Arkensas will go as planned.
As for the crit, well, same old, same old. I actually was in a move for a lap or two, but that was about it. I heard a lot of cheering for "Paul." Thank you, I appreciate it, even if it wasn't for me.
Some of the other Bissell guys tried to organize something at the end. Cody finished 9th and Jeremy was 10th. So that was cool
Now it's off to the Gila Monster. 107-miles that is truly a monster of a race in which there is no faking. A true man's race because as Jason just told me, crits are for kids.
