"Identify Your Victory"

Llama_cartm1 Greetings, for those of you that might be wondering, I made it back to town yesterday, from the San Jose  Lance Armstrong Challenge.  Wow, my head is still reeling from all the information I am trying to wrap my mind around.  In fact, I have had a headache since yesterday and I think it's probably post stress.   Talk about a Comfort Zone, I was so far removed, I needed the GPS to find my way back.

I will say this... I experienced terrain on this ride that I have not encountered ever before, on a bicycle that is;  and I was also making my way up and down hills that were a new personal best for me.  That being said, I went as far as I could and the rest of the ride, in my opinion, was out of my league.  I hope you didn't think I was going to report about making it all the way to the top and doing a hip bump with Lance, where is the story in that.   I saw many spills along the way including a lady that clipped my back wheel; she went down, I saved the fall by braceing my knee, and (Oh yeah, I had the MRI performed this morning)  I have decided it's time to get the repair done correctly so I can try to move to a new level with my sport

So in the next few days, I will get my thoughts organized, give you a few more insights into the ride and summarize my opinion of the whole project.  In the meantime I want to thank Andrew Scherf and his wife Loralee for making my visit to Clovis so nice.  Andrew, thank you again for watching out for me and insuring that I had a wonderful, safe riding experience.  Thank you Whittier Cyclery for getting me outfitted with good equipment, no "flats"; YooHoo.  And thanks to "Boo" for the encouraging phone calls during my long road trip.  It kept me calm, centered and the last minute nutrition suggestions were a big helpful reminder.   

Come Ride With Me.         


Was that the team car ???? :D
