Podium for All
Podium photos can be deceiving! Yesterday I came in last, or third, depending on your perspective. Likewise, Scott, who lapped me once, and very nearly twice, on a 5+ mile road course, came in third to last, or first. Saturday afternoon I made my way up to ...

Small Ring Reconnaissance in the Rain
The spillway, 25 miles upriver from home. The road on the other side was open, so no flooding there.    The decision came early Friday morning.  The weekend's races would be cancelled because of the continuing heavy rain and flooding in southern Louisiana. ...

Renaissance
Last weekend there was a new race, The Race at Renaissance , up in Jackson, Mississippi. It's been a long time since there's been a race with such a large prizelist within easy driving distance, and although I was planning on racing the Masters race, I was ...

Draggin' and Drippin'
The past couple of days have been pretty impressive, judging by the heat index, but they've been pretty unimpressive, judging by my legs. Wednesday's WeMoRi wasn't particularly fast, but I still felt dragged-out by the time I got back home. I have to assume...

A Wednesday Morning
It's 5:25 am.  The outside of the bedroom window is completely obscured with condensation. Summer humidity.  90-year-old windows.  I don't bother to look outside, nor do I check the thermometer. I already know it will be hot and humid. I sit on the edge of ...

Low Pressure
Last night we had some magnificant lightning and rain as a line of storms streaked through at about 40 mph, so I wasn't quite sure what the morning would hold. Creaking out of bed a mere fifteen minutes before meet-up time for the morning ride I glanced out...

Rain and Racing and Riding
I'm going to get wet on the way home... The university just sent out an email advising us to "take precautions to protect equipment and files in offices and labs," which seems like a little bit of over-reaction to the rain that's on the way. This always hap...

Weekend Riding
Charlie and Dan heading out for the Giro Ride It was kind of a slow weekend in some ways; a little lull between last week's stage race and next weekend's races up in Jackson. Somehow, even the Tour de France's   dénouement, most of which I never got to see,...

Rocky Mount
The Rocky Mount Stage Race up in Shreveport, LA, has always been a fun race despite the 5-hour drive from New Orleans. I went up last weekend with Ben Spain and Quentin Boose, trading the New Orleans rain for the Shreveport heat. We made pretty good time on...

Hot Time, Summer in the South
This time of year my Bianchi presents a problem that only short people can truly appreciate. With the advent of carbon frames and sloping top tubes came a whole new problem. With a normal water bottle cage there's not enough room to use anything except a sm...
