A Little Behind the Curve ... but I've got some props to give

Well Sea Otter is more then a week gone, people are now talking about Copperwhateverthrace (see here and here ), and I'm just gettin around to spiel'n about it need to blabber on about my race (quick note ... one of my cats has taken to sitting in front of my screen and staring at me, so I'm typing this half blind), I could have rode harder but I had a great time and it feels good to say "I raced" for the first time in a couple of years.

A couple of props, first goes to Miss Mary who crashed with Stacy and I on Thursday and Friday nights. You always read about how a teams support staff is up before the riders and goes to sleep long after they are tucked away but seeing how hard MM was bustin her ass really made me respect her commitment to the VB's ... I hope she takes a little time for herself so she can enjoy racin this CX season. On those lines I've got to give it up for Ana .... I dont know him well, I think I might have only talked to him a couple of times, but it takes some serious intestinal fortitude to mix it up with the best MTBers in the world (world, olympic, us, canadian, french, spanish ect champs galore) for 4, ya count them, 4 straight days. There is always plenty of bitching (rightfully) about sandbaggers but I dont think we, as a community, take enough time to recognize people like Ana who go out there and test themselves against the best competition they can find.
