The last week has been a blast of work from school. I didn’t get down to Colorado Springs for the USAC cross race on Sunday. Partially because my back wasn’t feeling awesome after a long ride with the CSU hoodlums Saturday and partially because I wanted to get some homework done and hang out with Dylan for his 21st b-day.
So, now I’m trying to get ahead on my HW before I head to Louisville, KY for the third round of the USGP of CX. This should be a great weekend. The weather is looking warm and dry for this weekend, a big change from my last race, which was 4 weeks ago here in Fort Collins. Training has been good, but with the racing here not really lining up with my school work and training I haven’t been able to take a start in a race. It isn’t an all badthing either since I will be spending much of the next 2 months living out of my suitcase and my double-bike-box.
After this weekend in KY, I’ll have 5 days in Fort Collins. Then home for family time and I’m doing a Bubba Memorial CX race, a race series that was formed as “the only cyclocross series in memorial of a not-yet-dead-dog.” After the Thanksgiving festivities I’m heading to Iowa City for the Jingle Cross races. Then back to Fort Collins for a few weeks of school and racing. I still need to make sure I get in a Collegiate CX race after Jingle Cross so that I am eligible for Nationals. Then wrapping up school, and flying back home.
Hopefully, I remember to take some good video from this weekend. Then over the Thanksgiving break I’ll get around to editing everything I took from Collegiate MTB Nats too and I’ll get some more entertaining material on here.
