Can't we just get along...........

In my last post I wrote a little bit about the Tue Nite Worlds Training Crit and some of the things that happened that night. Now we all know that it's a training race, as a team the Mercy crew uses it to practice tactics and of course we want one of our guys to win. The bottom line is that when the race is over we can all laugh at the things that happen in the heat of the moment during a race. Once it's over it's over and it's time to move on.

Now the Omaha guys, they seem to be a pretty excitable group on their rides and especially the Wednesday Nite Worlds ride. I check out GamJams Midwest pretty often as it gives a good recap of events that happen on the weekends in the area. Check out the Blog entry from Brian Redemske and the reaction or comments that it gets. Start at the top and read all the way down, it gets better and better.

Anyway, time to move on to more fun stuff.......
That is one small 29'er! Emily Batty is only 5'2" and can still fit on the big wheeled bike.

Makes me want to get my Superfly built up. She took hers to a win at Sea Otter!

Cody K. from the Cal-Giant Berries team rocking the Challenge tubies at Sea Otter.

Rolled up on this Sunday on the hard nine. The road has been sliding off into the Blue river for the last year and the city keeps trying to block the road. So far nothing has worked but every once in a while some doofus gets caught. This person tried to drive over the dirt they piled up to block the road and ended up with a giant teter-totter. Totally high centered, so bad that the wheels were pretty much off the road on both sides.

The picture really doesn't do the drop justice. It is at least 3 ft height difference between the upper and lower part.

Carly is getting bigger every day! Funny how I really don't see it but people that have not seen her since we brought her home can really tell.

So right now it's pouring down rain and I have to get the dog out before I can go to bed. Bummer, I guess it's got to be done or plan on getting up in a few hours. Good prep for our Tuesday nite Worlds Crit tomorrow!
