Ludicrous Speed

Screw light speed for Trans Iowa.

Monday, February 25, 2008


The sun was out in full force and the temps were pushing 40 in places. Word on the street was a few youth were turning cranks indoors CompuTrainer-style on the East Side. What a perfect match - Ride with Trixie in the sun and harass the little bros at Crank Daddy's all in the same day. The bikes were prepped real fast-

Trixie's legs were on the up, she was pushing me all day on knobbied 26's.
Trixie's up side is endless.

It was clear Aris was able to transfer his B-ball fitness directly to the bike. Theo raised his average watts from two weeks ago and Zoe put on a clinic to all non-Peters...errr... team MARS minus the exEXPO - current MARS and EXPO wannabe - Theo, who took second.
Zoe's age can be found on goat's Monday. She is one to watch for sure!

They keep raising the bar - 3hours on Saturday. I'll be lucky if my weekend total reaches that.

WTB saddles have been my saving grace over the years, so I am extremely pleased to announce that I will finally be able to outfit all of my bikes this year with their very own WTB saddle. No more seat swapping for me! For 2008, WTB will be extending their support to the entire EXPO nation as well. We are stoked.

How cool is it...

when the house's spin bike is being fought over?

Monday, February 18, 2008


EXPO Women - Deanna, Kathy and Trixie throw down a solid 150minutes this past Saturday. That's 2hours and 30minutes folks.

Brandon and Jordan put in 120 each sprinkled over the weekend.
Trixie and i took turns on Sunday, 65 and 45 respectively. She had my number.
No spin for John G - He's prepping for the Berkie.

I must give props to Mr. 24 and -CC- for taking their teams to the top in the 24hrs in the Old Pueblo.

24 Hours of Old Pueblo

WoW do I wanna be there right now. Picture was taken yesterday AM just one day before the start. Epic it is sure to be. Photo credit.


Camera phone...
JDubs decides to rub his NORBA medal in my face while I was at work.
No school for him meant 60minutes on the trainer.
Not bad for being home alone with no one crack'n the whip.

Still out

Sunday, February 10, 2008


Trixie and I came down with a nasty bug. I mean NASTY. I hit the sack last night at about 6ish. I tossed and turned and tossed, in and out of sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night and went to the kitchen for some water only to find out it was 8pm. I have never been so pissed. What felt like an entire night of hell had only been 2hours.

You could say the both of us are on the up-swing...we gotta play it safe. No spin bike for either of us this weekend. Lock the front door and build a fort in the bedroom.

Cross Training Sunday

Place a doggie frisbee at the 50yd line of your local high school

Walk to the back of the end zone and get ready to rumble.

Sprint till your lungs fall out.

Get up, and do it again.

Gotta love the frozen exhale.

A few BIG things are a brewing in the land of EXPO. I hope they finalize cause I really wanna let it out...
