Guess Who???

Check that out, we are living among a superstar!  

I haven't been blogging because there isn't much cross news going on.  Been riding a lot, looks like I'm going to fall just short on my goal of 20 3hr plus rides outside in Jan/Feb, but I got close.  Rode 4 hours today with Luca, EJ, Ernie, Scott, and Alan B.  It was so nice out, felt like cheating since today happened to fall on my day off, and the weekend looks kind of crappy.  Trying to make a spring ride trip happen last minute thanks to a generous offer.  It would be great to ride in some warm air.

I miss cross a lot.  Got the go ahead to work on frame design for 2009 team bikes, and a good team friend is working on a HUGE special guest at the shop in the fall.  I hope it all works out, but it would be after Madison weekend if it does.  Hope everyone is well, see you on the road soon I hope!

Mavic Shoes in stock.  They are so comfortable, I am really impressed.


Devon's sweet National Champ jersey from 2008 hanging from the rafters.

I need to work on my math skills.  For instance....If you ride south at 21mph with a 15 mph tail wind and it takes you 1 hour 8 minutes to get to the south shore country freaking cold will you be by the time you get home?  Maybe that's not quite a math equation.  Notes from today, the winter skyline in Chicago is unreal, lake water can get you wet even though it's 40 feet from the path, vaseline on your face really helps, embro on the back of your hands doesn't, and I can't wait for spring.
