old skool

i just got back from a really hard dirt road ride. yesterdays ride was posponed due to weather so everyone met tonight. it was really warm all day so i wanted to ride bad. the road was really tacky tonight and more like a trail than a road. we did the normal route in reverse and it seemed a little harder. it was also a much smaller group and since the pace was really high i didn't have anywhere to hide. either way i didn't get dropped and rich stark got a flat so we had a break half way.

i heard that this weekends course as of today is entirely under water. sounds like they have some serious re designing to do. this bridge will not be in the race. talk about old skool, check out the hot pink!

according to a very reliable source this run up as of today will also not be used. i'm really bummed about that, however DM assured me that he will make sure there is a run up in the course.

this bridge is just a crash waiting to happen. i'm loving the 80's team kit. that would be the becks mustard team from traverse city back in the early 90's!!!!

i'm really hoping that this log is still in the course. this is the perfect area to get a gap on your competition. an easy low bunny hop. you had better start praticing in your local park now.

i think i like Richard Groenendaal better when he was wearing his dutch national championship kit rather than the lame ass rabo kit he has to wear now. Gerben De Knegt is the proud owner of the dutch kit. perhaps Richard can regain it again this year. nice pic from the pinacker.
