There’s a lot going on right now in the land of LVB. Well I should say that there is as much going on as possible without any actual cyclocross racing taking place, yet. Though I’ve learned plenty of times that the preparation and lead into ‘cross is much more stressful than actually racing. Luckily,running the CSU Rams Cycling team is much less stressful than it was 3 weeks ago, and that’s all thanks to the help I have with the team. I’m lucky enough to have about 4 people on the email list that I can count on to get all these little projects done. So, that I can handle “Big Picture issues,” insert Michael Scott voice here.
This weekend will be my racing debut (finally) with KCCX/Fuji 2011. Which is awesome, but I’ve yet to finish building either of my Fuji race bikes. Luckily, I think that teammate (and temporary roommate) Joseph is going to try and get my back-up bike running today so that I can take it out to the AIC Cross Ride tonight. Its kind of a scramble, but when your physical therapist says your spine is healed enough that you can race, you hurry and up get READY TO RACE. On top of the bike building shenanigans I’m also trying to coordinate our CSU Cycling Team Sock fundraiser. We’re selling a pair of CSU team issue socks and a raffle ticket for $10!!! The ticket will be worth some great prizes down the road as we continue to sell them leading into our Spring Fling Fundraiser. Which means I need to get a Silent Auction / Fundraiser organized by then… I shouldn’t let people know what I’m thinking, then noone would know what to expect.
O, and I just volunteered to get a tattoo reading, “Ram It!” if the team sells all 120 pairs of socks. Again, I shouldn’t be allowed to speak. Stay tuned for updates from the USGP of CX races here in Fort Collins, and I’ll try to get a video going too.
