Today is the birthday of epicrider, Blair Foust. Happy 4/20 birthday Blair! By the way he won the last Shakin’ Ur Ass race in 2004. The 2006 SYA is on June 3-4. Look for more details and maps in the next few weeks.
Squealer sure was a good time. The older I get the less inhibitions I have about showing my “kooky side”… well at least around people on bicycles! My “racer side” had less fun with a slow leak, a mini-pump arm-pump 10 minute flat-change, and two crashes… but hay that is National Trail and you must have your A-Game flying just to ride that trail. My wonderful wife did great, shaving 4 minutes off her course record! She beat my best time by 30 seconds! I wear the pants but she wears the crown!
Welp the coconino cycle has sat around long enough – time for a new fork, new front caliper and some 9-speed adjustment.
Yesterday I did some bikes and bouldering with the Borlings and torqued out my shoulder. WTF. And now Murdock is coming up for some climbing this weekend. Well at least I can belay.
