Where U been?

I had a race report written up.

My intention was to write something inspirational, because I really was inspired.  However, I don’t write that stuff so well. It came off all schlocky, self involved, and whiny. And I deleted it. Suffice it to know that the XTerra was one of the hardest races for me to finish, even though it was only 2 hours and some change.  And the fact that I drove up there and did it and finished, makes me feel pretty damn pleased with myself. We’ll just leave that at that for now.

So, I must revert to what I know how to write about. Men racing bicycles.

What the hell is going on at the tour right now? I love it. The women are in Italy , facing long transfers, cramped hotels and racing in your face aggressively, and the men are twittering around the roads of France in Rock Star buses racing passive agressively.

To start it off, Lance is late for the start because he is pal-ing around with movie stars. I’m sure the French love a snub like that. Especially dressed like this.

Then, High Road gets their panties in a bunch because no one will help out the strongest sprint team. And instead of taking their namesake, they give a screw you to the peloton and spit out all of the GC contenders except for Lance.

And with his teammate and team leader, Contador, caught in the group behind, what does Lance do? He motions for the two teammates who did make the split with him, to get to the front and drill it. Oh, hell yeah. This is going to be a good tour.

And who decided to dress Thor in white?

Yay, a bloggy!

Dood, you finished an XTerra? Holy crap, those thingies are hard. That’s super awesome. I would not find it overly self-involved if you got around to spilling a few more deets about this adventure. But either way, many congrats!

The Tour is waaay too much fun. But white shorts simply have to go. Even Thor can not make that kit look good, though he does give it a solid try 😉

Thanks for the reading.

Yeah. What Beth said. And, about Thor in white.
Yesterday on the podium getting his green jersey,
he looked a bit like Big George.
