Race time

I registered yesterday for Walkersville, Masters 35+ 4/5. Last year I had a good time at this race and I'm looking forward to a repeat this year. As long as the weather warms up a few more degrees, I should be fine. Last week I picked my new bike.




You be the judge. It's a nice ride, and I spent two days tweaking a few adjustments made during my fitting at Arrow Bicycle. Chris M. and Chris D. took care of me and I feel 90% better on the bike compared to last year. Some drastic changes were made, but so far, I like how everything feels and the way the Specialized feels. You will spot a few more of my teammates on their new rigs at your local ride/race.

Local what? Bath houses, brothels, KFC's or Starbucks?

I'm sure some of them frequent bath house and brothels...KFC and Starbucks, I doubt.

I love this bike. I've got the '07 S-works Tarmac SL, which is basically an older verson of the Pro SL and when I saw it was coming out in white it took a good amount of effort to NOT succumb to my team's deal on them.

Wowzers, though. I know a heck of a lot of people that are going to be riding the Pro SL this year, including my girlfriend (jealous). I keep offering to race her for the bike but she won't take me up on the challenge. I wonder why...

Rode the new team bike today, Tarmac Pro SL but in black, and its sweet. These things are rocket ships.

I finally got to put it through the paces today...and like you said, it's a rocket...I rode it a few days at Hains Point and could notice the difference, but on the hills, the bike is something else...
