2 weeks, 9 crits
Tuesday, July 10, 2012 - Race Reports
Family Business This post is a bit late. I know because my mom mentioned the lack of an update to me yesterday. At least one person is reading this stuff.

So I finished Dairlyland. After the last post there were 4 more crits. I did 3 of them. Thursday was the crit in Sheboygan, flat and my legs felt terrible. Friday was back in Fond du Lac, lapped the field and ended up 5th. I got Saturday off and Sunday in Madison featured tired legs.

Overall I had mild success at TOAD. But the team, Kenda/5, was awesome. We won 8 of 11 stages, the overall and a bunch of primes along the way. Not sure if I'd do it again on account of the whole crit thing, but it was fun to win.

On the way home I stopped in Boulder for a day and then it was 4th of July Crit time. That was a mistake. I did virtually nothing and was pretty much bonking while hanging onto the back.

So that's how I did 9 crits in 2 weeks. To compare I did 8 crits all of last year. And no, I'm not a crit monkey now.

Recent news is that Kenda is NOT doing the Tour of Utah this year. Such ends my 4 year streak. Last year I got made fun of by Levi Leipheimer, who knows what could have happened this year.

Grrrrrr on the NO for Kenda for Utah. It feels like there is something political going on...no need to comment on that as silence will do... Bummed for you.
