who needs intensity?

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."
- Robert F Kennedy - speaking to Alice Lloyd College 4 months and 4 hours before he was killed in 1968. Hey you were the one who thought Iraq.

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.

Hey bro, no matter how bad you suffer at that UCI race, it can't be as bad as riding for 8 hours in freezing mountain weather on one peanut butter sandwich. Now THAT'S hardcore.

Yea, forget that stupid racing crap. Your ride out west was epic. You should have had more blogs on that. You need to write a travel article and submit it to Outside mag. or some shyte IMO.

You got slower and I got faster!
Won this on Sunday: Thus Climbed Zarathustra
Though that probably doesn't make you feel any better.
