    by  • August 15, 2011 • race coverage • 4 Comments

    Almost back on track after a few weeks on the road.  Cal Cup battles have started picking up… of course this being a slightly more, I need to search for a constructive word here, ‘fungible’ type of contest, which may not adhere to the needs of our Type-A race community, results of races and...

    Tour Withdrawal

    by  • July 28, 2011 • norcal scene, opinionate, too random • 3 Comments

    I feel like I have a hangover.  The end of the Tour always leaves an empty void in one’s stomach like when you first got dumped by your high school girlfriend, when you graduated from your local community college, or as in my case.. both at the same time.  When the tour ends you...
