Tennis night. Todd and I played #3 doubles and won easily 6-3 6-4. But it was an odd match, lots of weird points, one was 7 or 8 volleys in a row, I hit two overhead winners (normally those don’t work for me) and a couple lob winners.

‘crossiscoming is now ‘cross is here!

First race of the year, an open Cat 2-3 on a very bumpy course, including this multi line minefield.

I started on the front row, and stayed with the lead group for a while, it’s a training series and no matter how hard I want to train, I can’t duplicate the effort racing takes. There were over 20 racers and I finished top 10 – I think. When I finished, one of the experts yelled nice job keeping the young guys honest…. umm fuck you! ; )

Some tried to discuss the issue, but there is no way either side will ever see the other side.

This was a strange moment, a Jewish woman who supports Confederate Monuments, arguing with a Neo-Nazi about the Confederate flag

After a freelance assignment I had the chance to ride a new trail. 20 minutes in, I approached an off-camber drop, clipped a crank arm at full speed, and Superman-ed off the front, down the 3 foot drop and landed on my bike, scrapes on knees, elbows and bruised thigh and hip, but a deep punctured let me know I was done for the day. I cleaned it at my truck, Deb irrigated, Lidocained, and steri-striped it, but hours later, it is still bleeding.
