    You're taking on a tough and often thankless job, Jeff. Thanks, I know we all appreciate it.

    I learned my lesson last year. Last year CC sold out in ten minutes. This year I stayed up late just to sign up.

    Seventy hours of saddle time later I am wondering what I got myself into! lol My butt hurts. 8-[

    Good luck to all!

    Haven't been on a bike since early November. Over Thanksgiving I crashed on my quad and got a concussion, broke a rib and fractured a vertebrate. Hoping to get back on a bike Feburary 1st but we'll see.

    Easy there vultures I'm still planning on racing! :) Even if I barely make the cutoffs and am the last person across that finish line i'm getting that feather!

    EDIT - Had a follow up doctors appointment yesterday and they don't want me doing any "sports" for 6 months minimum, which would put me at June 1st. They are worried about if I hit my head again too soon, it'll take less of a blow to do more damage. Pretty bummed out as it was my goal after last years CC to race and finish this one.

    Well we haven't had the best start to training. Snow in Running Springs brought other distractions that were fun but kept us off the bike. Now with the closure of HWY 330 for 1-2 years, we made a last minute decision to move back down the mountain and closer to work and riding. Just moved this past weekend, so I guess we are out of excuses and need to start riding... fingers crossed for a healthy 2010 base to build upon?

    Sweet!

    Holy Crap!!!... I was just hanging up the CC Description Page an course/elevation profile right by my computer at work(I do this so my goal is right in front of me every day...try it it works) and I just "re"-noticed that the POW-WOW is on April 2nd...nearly a month later than usual...shoot maybe I will be able to lose a few extra pounds...strengthen up and get er done on the SS.

    Yeah... I know I need to pay attention better...some things never change...but this one make me happy!

    Boy I really need to pay attention, April 2nd is only 2 weeks later than last...whatever...I am still stoked.

    CRAP! I just mailed the check, I'm in for my first VQ#-o. Yesterday I was about to e-mail Jeff and asked to be taken off the VQ list, where I was number 1, And just stay on the CC waiting list, where I was number 64.

    Well, I guess the next few months I'll be on the bike. I'm super glad I bought a rode bike last year, It will make training a little more enjoyable.


    I put on 15 pounds this holiday season and I'm rocking the SS, Lets DO THIS!

    More familiar faces to enjoy the pain. Let me know if you want to get in on some training rides. With all the weather last month I have been riding Maple-Peak-Moto a bit. I have been avoiding Blackstar thinking it will be too wet. Time to start riding the first section I guess.
