(This one's pretty wordy but tons of great video's and photo's are included.)
What a weekend.
Currently, it's 8:15 pm on sunday evening. Almost every article of clothing i'm wearing right now is made of sweat pants material, that means it's really comfortable and therefore i'm really comfortable. It's been a long weekend and i've instituted maximum chill mode over here. Yesterday however, we had a lot of action.
Street Cred round 3: Urban Cross... get some.
Not satisfied? Check out dude on the fixed gear. i was riding near this guy for most of the race, thru grass, dirt, gravel, over wood pallets, rocks, train tracks, and most of it on snow, and take my word for it... he was rockin' that thing! No breaks, slick tires, skid stops, bad ass. I was riding a mtn bike with disc breaks for Pete's sake!
More video, watch that turn...
Basically the entire day was awesome and it all started with that race. The weather was perfect (sun, no wind, 35 degrees) and the course was awesome. A great group of people came out and i think it's safe to say that everyone had a blast. The boon's was just the icing on the cake that is Street Cred (sorry, no pictures of the boon's.) Two more rounds to go and i don't want to get ahead of myself, but... could yours truely possibly win the overall!?!
The post race recovery took place at Harrys Country Club which is a great bar down in the River Market. When you order Hamm's at Harry's they bring you a mini frosted mug, i think that's awesome. It's the little things, you know? After beer and food we had a leasurley ride home, complete with wildlife photography, and then some folks came over for the KU - K-State basketball game.
And lets talk about the KU - K-State basketball game. HOLY SH*T!!! i was pretty drunk but i think that game is gonna be remembered for a while. KU won by two in overtime! And of course, like he always seems to do, Sherron Collins came up huge again. I love that man, ... so much. ... and i'm not afraid to say it (watch him thru this entire clip, he almost muff's the pass, falls on his butt, is still on his butt watching as the biggest shot in kansas basketball history go in, then he gets up and hustles back to play d!) ... what's not to love? Everybody defiantly loved the game, the beer was flowing, the Minskies was lovely, the little baby came over to watch, he's even a KU fan.... life is good.
Sorry for all the KU / Collins rah rah, i'm a man of passion.
Besides that i had to go over and feed my old cat, he's cool.
- In professional bicycle racing news... Zdenek Stybar won cross worlds today in the Czech Republic city of Tabor. Tim Johnson was the top American in 14th place, that seems like a great ride for him, Cyclingnews.com had this to say about him... "US Champion Tim Johnson was the best placed of the North American riders in the field with a 14th place finish. In the closing laps, Johnson's lap times made for particularly impressive reading as he sped up in his approach to the finish line."
