Just getting ready to start the weekend off with a 53 mile flat road race and It has started raining. Awesome. What fun, so glad i could be here for some for some of the "classics" in Oregon this year. It is supposed to clear up tomorrow though, so we have that going for us, which is nice. All the MTB racers that are here are creating our own TT competition. $5 in and who ever out of us is the fastest in the TT wins.We could actually make more doing that than the real prize moiney since they think it is fun to pay guys like $14 for 12th place over all. WTF? That is just plain insulting. I wonder where all the money goes? We calculated that with 400 racers they are making $40,000 in entry fees and paying out $1000 in prize money. where did it all go? I am going to dominate the MTB TT though.. I got some Zip disc and 808 wheels, a TT helmet and a skin suit,and a 54x 11 so I cant help but go fast. Sunday should be the coolest stage with the big climbs and back roads throught the woods and everything. Untill then we will be riding in circles in the valley and trying not to get taken out by any sheep. Word.
