$2 Tuesday

Matt Gissibl calls me up - "Hey! wanna go on a ride?". Yessir! Matt rides from his crib to mine where Jdubs and myself are 90% ready. We finally get west...Oooh - Road closed..."Should we go this way?" Matt would say, "Yeah". Ahh yes, the classic yeah-ride. What was supposed to be a nice 26mile workout for my leg and Jdubs, turned out to a 49mile mini-epic (I am guessing around 70 for Matt). Major props goes out to Jordan for rocking the single speed all day long!

So one of EXPO's newest members, Casey Hildebrandt has been asked to keep me posted on weekly riding news. Now I do not expect this, nor do I demand it. However, you have no idea how much of a great feeling it is to get emails like this:

Casey (4th overall in WORS Junior X) is literally setting the standard for all peeps coming up the pipeline. And it will pay off.

Riley Kopesky (2nd Overall WORS Citizen 15-18)- Also new to EXPO this year(And new to mtb racing!) has started his Blog -

WORS #5:

Boot Camp

I have Brandon and Jordan on the Fixedgeargus Training Boot Camp which, I have to say, is quite difficult. 20-30minute criterium format workouts mid ride has these kids throwing major attitudes out their mouths and into the cranks. Best part is - they see the light at the end of the tunnel and Keep Press'n On. Hang in there guys!

My hammy is tight, real tight, but I have been easing into it with some success (I think...We'll see...)

WEMS this Saturday!

West Side Story

Bubba: "IS IT JUST ME????.............

Or does this look like some twisted mountain bike version of West Side Story? I think Walls even has a pack of cigs rolled up in his sleeve."

EXPO rides of note from this past weekend:
Myles Beach - 2nd, JuniorX
Brian Braun - 9th Comp Overall (Brian, you had better look out for your dad!)

Another great weekend. Many great results and DNF's plagued EXPO this weekend. It is a long season...

Some pics should be on their way.
