Solvang, Lotterypick???No_sprint

Hey there Lotterypick, how'd it turn out at Solvang?

Man, that was one cold, foggy start. I'm glad I had leg warmers, shoe covers, underarmour, jersey, long sleeve jersey. I ended up doing the 50 minus a couple miles. started at 7:45am, back at 10:45am with a support stop and changing two ladies' tires. They didn't much about what was going on. Long story. Ride time a little less than 2 hrs. I didn't hang out. Perhaps we'll meet next time. I always like the ride so I might do March.

I met your friend Rod. Nice guy and said that you're the reason he's on the team. SOmething about him seeing your sprint and knowing he could win a lot? Something like that.

I looked for you but we got back from riding about 11:30.

My wife made it fine and even rode her 10 miler the next day for fun. She cut 15 minutes off her old times.

The things a new bike will do for you. Her old one was a hybrid and I got her a Giant OCR1.

I'm thinking of getting her the FLightdeck so she can tell where she is on the gears. SHe has no idea and it would be a comfort to her.

UCLA sucks. Just a few games and man we could have been in the drivers seat to crush you PAC-10 hopes and NC dreams (what kind of dreams I won't say).

Love you man. Hope things are good with you. She's so stoked she signed us up for the LA marathon ride. Maybe you'll be there.

Well, the SC v. UCLA game has never been about the stronger team. It's always upsetville and anyone's game. We'll see what happens.

I usually do the marathon ride too. Let me know your plans. I can help with some details.

I plan on doing the Solvang century in March. You?

Heehee, yes, I plan on having a good 2004.
