Base eating..a burrito the size of my baby

Saturday was the first unofficially pseudo-quasi VeloRochester training camp day.

Charly, our resident endurance specialist, brought this present for Chris cause he thinks Chris is swell.

It weighed in at under 21 lbs stock w/out pedals. That is pretty sick for a dual sus bike...heck that is pretty sick for a hardtail. Needless to say, Chris was pleased.

Well, after ogling over the bike, we went out for a sweet ride. I chose to ride my 30lb trail bike with 1000 gram Nokian studded tires. Big mistake. My teammates were all rolling their 22-23lb race hardtails. After 4 hours of pounding, my legs gave way, and my brother dropped me in the last mile of the trail!

After the ride, I had a fever, and the only cure for that fever......... was some Chipolte burrito.

Today, I was off work (paid holiday at Seagate for whatever reason). I took another long ride, but put some more reasonable tires on the Fuel ex. I still wouldn't call it a road rocket.

For dinner, I had another fever. Chris, Ben and I are always competing to see who can get the biggest burrito. Well, tonite was my best ever. For reference, the girth is measured by the gap in the foil when they wrap it (the amount of tortilla you can see). Check that gap out! They actually gave me 2 foils...a very rare occurrence!

I have a new ordering technique to achieve this girth, but I will not share my secret.

Little dude is doing great! He and I took a recovery nap together today. He is really good at those (credit for this pic goes to Jen Meyer).

Base training

What does base training at 5 degrees look like?

This. Yes those are icicles hanging from Chris's facial hair.

And while we were out, my little guy was taking advantage of a rest week.

Caveman Power Meter

Fisher and I were riding the other night in sub 10 degree weather....sparks were flying off our studded tires!
Our gage lacked precision (more sparkes = more power), but we figure I was generating about 1000 watts and Fisher was generating a monsterous 1500!
Who needs a power tap?

Still no clock dripping....
