Can you guess who the guest blogger is?

Ray, this one is for you. Jordan had a great race today at the Velodrome. He finished fourth overall in the C race and first in the younger juniors...Sweet (do I sound like Jordan now, he told me I have to use his language if I'm going to be a guest, but I refuse to use his poor grammar and spelling!!!!) I wish I could have made it to the race, I went last year and it was a great time. Instead, I went to the Gopher/Michigan football game. Boy, what a disappointment. The most fun we had at the game was eating sunflower seeds and people watching, better luck next week against Wisconsin. I'm going to go to the Lake Rebecca race tomorrow and cheer everyone on. Let's hope the sun comes out!! It wouldn't surprise me if Jordan doesn't let me be his guest blogger after this post, he is going to be sooooo pissed when he sees that I posted the picture of him from third grade. Oh well, such is life!! (P.S., Ray and Debbie, I miss seeing you at the races, and isn't Helga adorable!?!)

Afton and Green Acres.

Green Acres was flippin' cold but had a cool course. In my race on the first lap I hit a barrier and bent my left shift lever pretty bad. In the end I got second with caleb from the hudson race about 30 seconds ahead of me.The A race was beastly and Doug won by about 2 minutes with Dewey behind him. Smithers had a nasty crash that looked really really bad but he was OK. Lindsey has been doing cross for a few weeks now and she is improving a ton at each race. She also has a good cookie recipe.

You can just barely see the bend in my lever

Got ready on Saturday with just a skinsuit and hoped it would warm up. We got there and what do you know it did right before my race. The start of my race got a little screwed up because on the90 degeree turn about 5-10 people went kind of straight. I was the first person not to turn but my back wheel got hit and I did a little driftin'. I was fine and had to work hard to stay away form the group but at the end it was a sprint between my and Adam Kobel and I just beat him. The Cat 3 was fun to watch because Chazzel Dazzel was on the front until he crashed and drifted back a little. The A race was wicked fast and everone looked fast. Dewey ended up winning and Pattycakes still got top 10 after his 21 birthday.Brian Koneman also showed up and did the A race on his brand new TREK X2 with a sweet-o white stem.

Twine Ball and Wirth

No pictures yet. This weekends races were saweet. Twine ball was cool. The course was cool and there were plenty of people in my race. I figured out to start before the offical bolws the whistle. I was first to the u turn followed by Conrad Roberts and super fast single speed guy John Gorilla. All 3 of us were together for about 1 lap and then I got dropped and John ended up winning Conrad got 2 and I got third.

Wirth was pretty cool. Ther were 103 people in my field so the start was important. I started good and was in the top 10 until a barrier when my seat got caught on my skn suit and my bike crashed into the barrier but i just stumbled but my chain fell off. After I got it back on Nils was right behind me and man is he strong I had to work so hard to get away from him. So in the end I got 19 overall and won the juinors.

In the 3s race I got 25 out of like 50 with Jason a few places ahead of me and Super Rookie just a few spots back. Too bad Chazzle Dazzle wasn't there he would have LOVED the course.

John Page's Planet Bike Cup

Going throug the finish.

The only barriers on the course.

This race was super awsome for me because it was kind of like a crit and cyclo cross race and I thought it was really fun. My race went pretty wells and I won. The elite race looked imposs and John Page totally pushed it and broke away. Bijorn totaly killed it and ended up getting 3 behind Page and the Swiss guy.
Dan Casper got attacked by a tree and still got 5 in his cat.
