Back to the Blog

It's been a while since I've been on the blog. It's not that I've been too busy to post, I guess I just didn't have much to say. Finally went to the doctor to try and figure out why I've been sick so often and ended up on antibiotics and with a appointment with a ENT specialist. Oh Yea......

Today was the end of school for the boys and the end of elementary school for JoBro. Mathgeek and I both went to see the kids get their awards. Both Curly and JoBro got awards for academics which made Mathgeek proud. They sure didn't get those skills from me!

JoBro strolling back to his classmates with his one of his certificates.
I have been out for a few rides now and again.

Let's see, what else......Spent a fair amount of time watching the Tour of California. I'm a bit of a Chris Horner fan so it was fun to see him win the race. The domestic Pro's did a pretty good job of mixing it up with the Euro-pro's but when it came time to drop the hammer nobody could match Radio Shack. Props to Garmin-Cervelo, they managed to win the Team prize with a mix of young/old guys. That was one of the other cool things about the race, the number of young U-25 riders making their mark on the race.

The Tour of Italy is currently going on and it's been fun to watch as well. Pretty amazing to be able to watch it live on your computer in the mornings. The course looks crazy hard every day!

So here it is, Memorial Day weekend and I'll be sitting at home while my Mercy Cycling teamates are off in Texas for 5 days of racing. Sounds like if you didn't go to Texas you are heading off to the Quadcities  for the Memorial Day weekend races. I can't remember the last time that I didn't race on Memorial day weekend but I'm sure I'll find something to do. Good luck to those racing where ever you go
