H = 4 180s + 4 90s As you may have noticed I've been off the blog-dar for the last couple of weeks. Cycling cracked me and the cracks spread to the other parts of my life, so unprofessional.

Not to worry, I'm bouncing back for one more race, The Herald Sun Tour. It runs from Oct. 11 to 17 down in Australia.

It'll be 8 crazy days capped off with one of the biggest sell outs in modern sport; a circuit race in the form of an H, for the title sponsor.

Actually, I'm not sure why it's that shape, I can just assume that the idea for 4, 180s in 4km must have started with a "They'll give us money if..." and not a "Wouldn't it be cool if..."

Anyway, I'm still riding while the rest of the world goes into cross training mode. In fact I got an email today from Jesse Moore about his cross training and he mentioned you could "See more at 'Practice what I Preach' BlogSpot."

I checked out his site and was a bit surprised. Reviewing Gossip Girl episodes is cross training, since when? Jesse, I get the cross part, but where does the training come in?

Love the art For me, the last week has been pretty mellow. My bike was shipped from nationals last Wednesday and will hopefully get here today. This resulted in a mandatory, yet much needed, break. But this week has been pretty big for Tom Zirbel and Bissell.

First, news comes out that Tom is going to Garmin next year. I heard this rumor in April but it was early and unreliable. This time the rumors were true.

Tom also won the individual NRC title by a mere 7 points. It was quite a dramatic finish because at the Chris Thater Memorial Crit last weekend Sebastion Haedo needed to win, to win. While Tom was racing the US Pro Road Race, 4 other Bissell riders were at the crit to try and win or at least disrupt the Colavita lead out. It worked and Haedo was second. A true team effort.
