First: I just read this in a book.
"What we have is an ally in name only. We support a government that has no supporters. What we have is a government that without the support of the United States would fall tomorrow."

more important stuff. bike racing.
Holy god are some people fast. That is my summary of the Month of Mud race today. Brady's run state park, 17ish miles. I saw TJ, Krimerney, Pflug, Ruggs, Gorski, BABIK!!! and some other studs just ride away from me. Evan on a 29'er singlespeed to take the singlespeed win. Steevo with a ego deflating 4th place singlespeed, like 139th overall or something. 3rd day of intensity since my trip, and I must say it is a lot easier to just ride really slow for a long long time.
The question remains: How long will I make it before being lapped at Sunday's UCI race in Cincy? I will guess less than 40 minutes. Brutal.
