that's it!

Fun cross race today to close out the season for me. Felt ok out there but just got beat at my own game. Ali was rallying the corners in the snow and ice and I was having to play catch up, to much air in the tires, rookie move. "Mellow" 2nd for me but I was able to cinch up another "mellow" series win. It was fun to set up the course even if it made for a long cold day. I liked seeing some new elements to the Fort course.

I am a little bummed to be missing the show in Bend but I have had a busy year and need a break, my heart just has not been in cross like years past although I have had as much fun as ever. To many other cool racing opportunities I guess. I really enjoyed the local series, seeing Rosie race was a highlight. Also great to see so many people catching the bug, inspiring!

Since I got back from La Ruta I have been under the gun. Between work, teaching at the U, Monavie-Cannondale stuff, selling our house, buying another house, and packing I have had to put the bike on holiday.Great timing I guess but it's tough to shut the training down before the racing.

More on the big move later, hopefully we can get it done before the skiing gets to good.

Oh yea I have a bunch of stuff for sale including a Team Scalpel. Shoot me an email if your looking: bartmang@hotmail.com

I like your use of "mellow", are you barrowing that from my dad?
