A weekend of firsts

This weekend was the first time for a lot of things. The first Redwing and Pistons playoff games, the first grass cutting of the year, and my first win of the season.

I won my age class at the Yankee Springs Time Trial, a race I've never won before. I also had my best time ever and I think I could have been faster but I didn't pre-register which means I got held up by a lot of people that I had to pass. Next year if I'm racing it again I'll try to get my registration in early.

Most of the team was there today too and and they have gotten a lot faster over the winter. Time gaps between various members of the team have gotten a lot LOT closer. It should make for some great inter-team competition.

Tomorrow I fly to Germany on business so I may not be able to update my blog until I get back. It also means no riding but I'm taking the Compex so at least I'll get in some muscle work. We are on the company plane, I wonder what my flying companions will say when I put on my shorts and hook myself up while we are flying?

Steve you ROCK!! Thanks for all of your help with training it really paid off....I think when you pull out the comdex on the plane you won't have to worry about any body siting to close :)

Woo hoo! Good job Steve. I'm getting excited for Addison. There's something about racing around in loops that I like more then point to point races. Have a safe trip!
