Better late than never

I have been meaning to do a season closing blog is almost too late now, as I haven't raced in about a month. However, it is cold and I have some spare time to write this evening.

Here are some of the season Highlights (and low-lights):
I ended up racing 32 times on my mountain bike...1 of which was a road race and 2 of which were CX races. I won 16 of the 32 events....hitting .500 I guess.

Races I felt best at: Afton and Maplelag UCI
Races I felt worst at: Welch and Chequamegon
Races I had the most fun at: 24 Hours of Afton and Maplelag MNSCS
Most proud moment: When I beat Fisher in a beer chugging contest to win the first Buck Hill Series
Goals not met: National 24 hour Team Championship
Goals met: Turned pro and repeated as State Champion.

I have to say a special thanks to my Wife and my Dad for all their support at the races. With out my dad doing hand-offs, many of us wouldn't have finished the races. With out my wife's support, patients and willingness to let me train, I would need my granny gear.

There will be less frequent updating during the winter, but I will definitely keep y'all up dated on my training and equipment for next year. For now, I will leave it that I will have and even lighter bike coming thanks to Trek....dual suspension that could tickle 22lbs.

If I don't write again, I want to wish EVERYONE a Merry Christmas. I hope you can be with the ones you love!

Now, back to my couch potatoing.

Yeah, we were out in that. The unpleasantness wasn't so much from the 6 inches of snow or the 15 degree temps but from the driving wind.

Check out these eyebrows
After that it was on to some Wii action. We assembled a quorum and got wigglin'.
Chris and Jen boxing....Jen WON!
Paul and Josh playing music...Paul gets in the groove.
