Little more Ice Weasels Cometh

These were sent to me the other day, Rickey's lady Jade took these at the race. That yaller helmet Rickey has on is one he had to borrow, left his at home. MTB should be fun next season, both he and I will be on the Gary Fisher team, it will be great racing/training together.

I liked the smaller barriers they were much easier to bunny hop, big ones were harder to get over while riding.
The photos need to be clicked on for a full view, I did not have time to do that tonight.

Me and Rickey looking at the camera. He will be a 2009 teamate!

Ice weasels and one more time.

Ice Weasels Cometh was just the most fun cyclocross event done in a while. It had so many turns you lost count, soft decomposing leaf/garden sections, quick plunge followed by a run up and of course the rideable barrier sections. If there is a follow up to this one next season I'll try not to fall twice on the first lap, funny part is it was still just a great time. Thanks to Thom Parsons and Colin Rueter along with the others for such a fun event.

Thought I was happy to be done and got bored quickly with nowhere to go this weekend. Thankfully, OPA OPA Winter Cross is on January 24, 2009. No usa cycling license needed, so don't worry if your loan for the new one hasn't gone through yet.

It should be fun in the snow on a 29er set up for cyclocross, if bad some ice tires will work well on that setup, loose snow and some fat tires can be used.

Some various cyclocross pics here along with the quick video Thom got of us hopping the barriers in RI, great to have a good time while racing.



The one more time statement actually applies to two things at this moment. One more cyclocross race next month and another six rounds of Temodar. Hit NYC for the MRI checkup tuesday, my nuerologist sat down with that "it's baaack" look on his face and we are giving the Temodar another shot.
The growth is minimal but over a three month period a difference in size has appeared, gotta look at the positive, keeps the weight down and helps me climb better. Plus, I silvered at worlds last time on this chemo so maybe it's time to move up a spot.

The funny part of all this is that only a few family members know and we are keeping that way until after Christmas, none of them read any of this so I can tell my friends what's going on without them finding out. I find that pretty amusing, must be the kid in me.
