I felt great after 5 laps, I was solid in 2nd place, but I wanted to ride hard this coming week, so I pulled the plug @ 4pm. I didn't loose 2nd until 7pm. So it was 3rd place I got. Aris had a tough day in the SS State Championship race (25miles). B and J took 4th in the 50mile Duo. Chris T got an awesome 4th in the 25mile and John G took a almost as good 5th(top 5 were honored). Jeff Frings (he has a sweet pic of Chris)made a surprise visit to hang with the pit.
A nicer write-up down the road w/pics.
Lets all hope Lee is ok.

They stopped asking.
45miles, two fill-up stops, one BikeSafer sighting and one flat.

Expedition Supply's Beaver Dam store has been underwater for too long, they are trying to boost some sales due to the loss of revenue. So they are ramping up some EBAY sales to help their cause.
Per MC Raasch:
If you gots the time, go and take a lookie here for their items up for bid. If something interests you, go ahead and bid knowing you are truly helping out your LBS.
If you didn’t know, EXPO's Beaver Dam store is not doing so
good. We had to evacuate on Friday (the 13th). With major
inventory damage, and no insurance coverage for floods. I’m guessing
we’ll be closed for at least a month, in our busiest time of year there.
So if you can spread the word to anyone you know looking for bikes etc, we
are trying to boost some extra sales to make up for the lost sales in BD.
Keep Press'n On

Theo "The O" Peters took the 1st half of the season to ride with the touted MARS Juniors...As it turned out, he had a little too much EXPO in his veins. We're happy to welcome him back to EXPO Racing. It had to have been the kit because all the sudden The O puts out his best race ever to date! 7th Overall in Sport.
On the plate for this week...some EXPO special treatment, a TREK 85oo built with a SID World Cup, with some accompanying XT sprinkles. Johnny G will help him build it tomorrow. After that, some fixedgeargus bootcamp training.
JDubs is extremely impressed with the new EXPO bottles..so impressed he put out his best finish to date, 5th in Citizen U14. He's down to only 3:44:00 behind the lead.
All I can say is... look out for Bbones. 3rd in Sport 12-14. Not only is he getting faster, he is also gaining confidence!
Aris had some hidden concerns regarding this style of course. He now has no worries as he conquered the washboard. 1st in his age in Comp and 8th overall. Steady and strong.
The rain had started to fall mid-way into my second lap. As the rain came, my legs started to give. I swapped bottles and peeled the Oakleys in route to 6th in my age and 40ish overall. I'm making progress.

How cool is it when your favorite morning place allows 6 bikes inside? Too cool.

The day is up to Jdubs for it is his 12th birthday. First thing he wanted to do is ride to the East Side for some breakfast at the Plaza Cafe.
Bikes parked in the distance, we could barely clear our plates. No CPC today.

We watched the rain fall while we were at the mall. So we watched Indiana Jones. Pretty good.
Once we got out of the movie we saw that the roads were dry. This made us gitty. We sprinted home and hopped on the bikes with pistons ready.
From the start we knew we would be flirting with Mother Nature.

Rain this morning means the grass is starting to look like a jungle. I was sore in the legs before my commute, then they felt fine during the ride and the work day, even on the ride home. I showered, relaxed and took Buckwheat on the walk. That is when it hit me. Really sore I am tonight.
Does commuting make a rest day not a rest day? Depends.

Today was very foggy and misty-wet(on the second half). My glasses spent most of the day on the helmet. Gator Aid and Half Tea/Half water there and Heed and OJ/water back. Granola and Triscuits and Clif Bloks in the tummy. Garmin says:
I sneaked in 50miles yesterday before it started to sprinkle. I found Tosa mo fo's on Monday and hung with them for a while before I made it home. I hope to rock a 5+ hour ride today, but I have to finish the grass first.
I might try to get down to WNR to meet the bros and do a lap with Al. We'll see.

Hmmmm...Big Ring Classic doesn't seem to be such a fitting name any more. The two EXPO rides to make the podium this weekend were on single speeds. Side note, the new kits look pretty hot.
Brandon "Bbones" Watkins - 3rd Sport U14
Aristotle "I faster than you" Peters - 1st COMP U18
