Minus the Turds........

Mad City was a good time. Riley and Kara made the trip with me. Riley even slept through the night and the car ride for the most part. I don't know why my son is so relaxed about everything. I am sure not relaxed....

We even had Mexican on Saturday night!

A 180 on the side of the hill. Rain would have made that really bad.

Cross is a hard fucking sport. I have lucked out in that I have a great support system around me.

Turds in the toilet

Finally a bit of anger for a post. Went to Mad City this weekend for some UCI CX races. I didn't get any points but I did manage to shrink my ego back to normal size.

Now to the title of my post. It finally occurred to me that there are a growing number of CX racers out there who are truly like turds in a toilet floating around waiting to be flushed. If they are lucking they will clog things up for a bit. You know what I am talking about! They come flying out of the hole only to make it toward the front.....then they just float around...get all fucking jammed up..they can't turn left or right but they can get in the way. These guys are fucking idiots! They don't have a chance in hell of finishing on the lead lap but they sure as hell can sprint for the first 3 minutes of the fucking race. There is nothing more annoying in this world than hearing these guys talk about their race after the fact. You would have thought they were sprinting for the win. If you are sticking your foot out on every turn it is time to down grade! If you are sprinting into a corner in front of everyone and falling down is time to stop sprinting! Fuck ME!

Oh well just a bike race.

Day one

Day two
