Working from home today, have been going almost non-stop trying to answer all the e-mail inquiries generated from the MSNBC article. Very cool.
I say almost because I just got back from 'cross practice, oh yeah. I was worried about killing the white frame completely this season, on account of the dents it sustained at the bottom of the pile-up in Longmont, so I had Lou put together a new ride ... and he came through big-time, with next-day turnaround. While he was at it, I made the leap complete -- now the only non-SRAM bikes I own are my pit bike/commuter (which will change soon, I'm sure), and my Specialized road bike, which has been in pieces and unridden for more than 6 months. I didn't realize just how awesome SRAM on a 'cross bike would be. Yeah, baby! (Full build with Rival, 17.8lbs, by the way.)
Let's see, only other news of note (and it's a biggie) -- I heard yesterday that the last road race of the season is November 11 -- in Lusaka, Zambia. I've been invited to compete. How surreal is that?!?!?
