So I started this blog installment earlier this week, and had a month by month account of my year going...I decided that this was too much, so I hit the file 13 button!!!
This year absolutely FLEW by!!! It's really hard to believe that it's New Years eve day!!! Anyway...My year was jammed with ups and downs, and I think my only saviour was my trusty steed!! It's amazing what a 50 or 60 mile solo ride will do for ya!!
So what to write about now...I set out this year to have a good season, as I have for every season I have been racing!! I had a great season, I wish I could have raced more!! I recall a coversation I had with a long time riding buddy that happened in January. We were talking about doing a trip to Colorado and riding Mount Evans. During that conversation I told him it would be good motivation for me to get into good shape and that I wanted to win a race this year.
Well...The trip to Colorado didn't happen due to a severely crappy job!!! I will say this, the crappy job allowed me to ride A LOT during the middle of the day when all of the CYCLIST HATIN JACKASSES were at work!!! The only good thing about it!!!
Moving on!! Those of you that follow know how my season went, I won a race and came close on a second, had I not been a bit cocky in my ability on my MTB it probably would have been another...oh well!! :)
So today is the last CX race of 2009, it's 17 degrees, there's at least 6 inches of snow still on the ground, and I'm going!!! My fitness is severely lacking, it's F**KING COLD, and I wanna do it!!! CRACKHEAD!!! Oh well one more race to get so wound up I can't see straight!! WOOOOHOOOOOOOooooooo!!!!
So here's to watching the old year do a one handed wheelie off into the sunset, and watching the new year stick the landing down the backside of the new year TABLETOP JUMP after blasting a crossed up, one handed (so the new year can wave goodbye to the old year), layed over flat, BIG F**KING AIR!!!!!!!!
Oh yeah...I have my work cut out for me in the new year...I'm a 3...can you say more trainer time!!!
Happy New Year FREAKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
