well hello everyone, this is my first blog on this new site here, thought it would be a good little hobby to get into. Well we will start out with how my weekend went. Well it was my first race this weekend with the UNC cycling team, right here at promontory park in greeley. It was a little bit of a wake up call being at a race pace for a long time, but it was a great experience and a learning one at that. I lost the pack pretty early and ended up finished 21st out of around 34 not to bad for my first race, and from what i hear everybody gets dropped in the first one. I spent the rest of my day watching my fellow teammates and then i rode in the men's 4, 5 race only to get dropped and then lapped, but you know it happens. Props to my fellow teammate Corey Carlson took 3rd in the mens 1, 2 corey your gonna get all the ladies. I had another 5:30 am wake up call the next day and drove to Ft. Collins to participate in the oval crit there. This race went a lot better than the others i had a better warm up, i was with the pack for the whole race. Then i sat on my fellow teammate matt koch's wheel up until the end and i sprinted only to pass about 6 guys to take 27th in the race. It was great feeling to pass a few people, even though i recieved a lot of shit from matt. Anyway today my good buddy jason and i went on his first ride on a road bike, he is gonna be real good once he trains but he had the problem of cigarettes this past year, biking will make him stop, well im gonna hit the sack leave a comment!
