I made it thru another 6 hr solo in WI. 7th place out of 22 so I feel good on the results.Hills,Hills,Hills and that sums up this race,the hills were killer steep and nice and long,the only way I can look at these races are as training races.My next one needs to be 12 hrs I need to see if I doing 24 hrs is going to be possible.Tha race went well and food was good with the Hammer gels and drinks and e/caps.I met Jeff finally I read his blog every day I feel like I know the kid,his dad is a nice guy and is there for his support crew. The 11 laps were a good pace for me and wonder how much I could have done at a slower pace but for 12 hrs ? I 'll see if I can make the Hatfield race . I need a recovery ride tomorrow I have the 2nd PAMBA race next weekend it'll be tough. see ya !

Was last week and it was my first DNF ,but it's early in the season I hope it's my only one.I took a bad endo at the top of a small 6 ft. hill ,my pedal hit a stump and over I went and landed on my back and head. I'll live but I talked myself out of finishing the last lap,I wish I would of done it. I'm waiting for Tony to come out for a road ride today ,we have a road race in June to get ready for.I'll be going up to Wi. next Saturday for the 12 hrs of Metro I'll do 6 hrs solo again and then my next race in need to go 12 hrs. I'm looking at the NRS 1 or 2 for a 2nd. bike ! I love my Razorback I don't know if I can give it up. I'm going to get a quick nap in before I ride today See YA !!

Well I just got back from turkey hunting and no turkey for me this year I had fun but I couldn't call a couple in close enough to get a shot today. I did my first 6 hr solo at Kettle mer. Saturday, it went well I got 11 th out of 33 so I'll take it. I don't think some of the riders were to serious some only got 2 or 3 laps. I went out hard with the main pack for the first lap and into the second then I had to start pacing myself a little better. When ever some one would come around me I would stay with them for a while to keep me going. My legs cramped up at the start of the 4 th lap and I had to walk it off for around 5 min. then I was okay and I slowed down and acually felt pretty good on the 5th and 6th lap.I need to find out why I'm cramping I need more training and some kind of supplement.I used the Hammer Heed ,Perpetuem and gel ,I don't think I used the perpetuem right I'll checkwith some other racers. the next Wems. race I can do is May 28th, I'm looking forward to it, 6 or 12 ? I'll see how training goes.
