F'd myself on gearing and the start. Mediocre performance but fun mixing it up with some different dudes. Kelli won her race again so not all was a loss today.

Think riding around the clock is hard? Imagine riding around the world. If you're in Waukesha this Friday(and why wouldn't you be?), you can ask Scott Stoll what its like. You can even pick up his book, Falling Uphill and read about his adventures. Seriously, one of the coolest people I've met in the past few months and his experiences are an inspiration to many. If you're in town Friday night be sure to stop by Martha Merrells on Main and say 'Hi'. While we're at it, anyone up for a ride then?

With WORS not on my schedule this weekend, Kelli talked me into doing Race the Lake. Up we were in the wee hours of the morning jetting up to to Fon du Lac and picking up race packets in the dark. It was barely twilight when the race rolled out of down town and up the west side of Lake Winnebago. A driving tailwind and endless flat roads kept everyone balled up together for a majority of the race. Dodged a couple gnarly wrecks and stayed on the front group as we headed south. Zig-zagging down the eastside of the lake had us alternating between head and cross winds, lulls and surges. With about 20mi to go I began to pop and fell off the lead of about 15 riders. Yo-yo'd in the chase group not far behind for a few more miles before getting spit out for good. Hooked up with Rick Amen and a couple other dudes and just rode it in. Ended up a few minutes off the main group but can't complain. Cleaned up, had lunch with some other fast dudes and watched Kelli come in a little while later. Nice way to spend a sunday morning.
