The Race To The Sun(day)
I'm watching Paris-Nice. Even though I'm not a huge fan road riding or road racing, it's the only game in town on cable. That and I'm a perv for bike racing on TV. I'd watch two mullet headed fat kids ride BMX bikes to the mini mart for ice tea, if it was on TV. OK, I need to vent-I love Bob Roll, but the verbal fellatiating of Lance Armstrong needs to stop!! Jeezus!! Dude's not even in the race. And NO BOB, it is NOT good for bike racing to have Lance back. Sorry. That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it.
I will say it's cool to see Contador kicking it in after loosing the jersey in an epic bonk. OK, Sylvain Chavanel just dropped a chain and needs a team car to help him. WHAT?? Jeezus dude, at this point just stop and put it back on. I have the mechanical ability of a one armed gorilla, but I can get a chain back on. Frig! OK, enough about bikes on cement. How much do I LOVE saying Tony Colom? It sounds like a Sopranos character. Toni "the toe" Colom. Yeah, someone needs to "reach out" to him.
I like the taste of Sunday now that I have no "real" job. Sunday used to be another day of me scrambling to get a longer ride in, whether on the road or dirt. Today it was an off day. Time spent working on XXC, with my dad, and watching bikes race on TV with a fine beverage. Tomorrow I will start another week. Sounds good to me.
Speaking of me working on XXC, I'm making some good progress, but would like to highlight some of the 24 Hours In The Old Pueblo. If you have any pics, video, or words you would like to share with some fellow enduro freaks, drop me an e mail at xxcmag (at) gmail.com. Gracias.
The plan for Monday is to hit more dirt on the Big Mama (if the rain holds off), or get 2 to 3 hours of the hard pot-holed, car littered, gray stuff in. Either way, two wheels moving via my legs and a smile on my face. Cheers.
