Brians wedding

Was an amazing great time. It was excellent to see everyone, I miss everyone and seeing all the bros was very nostalgic. Unfortunately I missed to great events, the Park Ave cross race and the red bull BMX contest. Huge bummer, but it was worth seeing everyone. Next week is a big race weekend though. After the alley cat on friday with insane partying, we have the Ellison park race, then NYS championships in Syracuse. Luckily my ankle has healed up a bit so I would be able to do everything. Plus lets not forget indoor soccer Sunday too. I'm pretty sure this weekend is going to do me in for the season. But I may be able to squeeze out a race or two more.

Don't eat cereal.

Before a race. That sat like a ton of bricks. In terms of placing though, it seems my positioning seems to be declining lately. My results so far are 11,12,13,14,21 respectively since my start. So either I'm getting worse or the competition is getting better. I'm pretty sure its a combo of the 2. Anyways. An aside from racing, I'm considering either a new tattoo or a new macbook. And I really can't decide. Both can wait, or one can be bought now. I may do a tattoo, cause i can just have it outlined now and wait on the rest. Who knows. Anyways, more races to come.

Buffalo cross race.

I think I got 13th out of like 40-50 in open men. Not bad I'd say after racing the day before. Here is a ball shot picture of me.

In other news their will be a Halloween alley cat and a bmx competition going on at the same time. I'll probably be attending both but hey it happens. In also other news I put my application in to teach in Japan. Its in, I'm seriously trying to do it. Who knows what will happen.

This appears to be my race schedule for the next two month. I'm pretty sure I'm going to die.

Highlander pain a while back still messing me up for cross.

So i after the highlander which went great. I didn't bonk at all, did about 103 miles in 6 hrs 40 mins with 11000 feet of climbing. It was hard but fun. I'm pretty sure i could probably cut my time down by a half an hour if I was actually riding all out. Maybe next year.

Heres me:

then theres this guy:

This guy apparently thinks climbing a hill in aero is efficient.

Or this person:

Who thought riding on his back would allowing him to ascend faster since his feet were point in that direction.

Overall it was an interesting and fast ride.

Last weekend I also did my first cross race of the season. Placed 11th out of a field of 22. Not bad, was hoping for a top ten finish, but I finished on the lead lap. Tough thing is that its an open mens field, which makes me a clumped in with 1 and 2 riders. Hopefully this weekend will go better but ill be racing two races this weekend so lets see how that goes.

Highlander this weekend and other stuff

I went to boston this weekend which was less then eventful as usual. I probably should have went to my alumni ultimate frisbee game. This could have been me!

Alas I went to Boston to see tom brady kill himself basically.

But this weekend should be fun and hard. 100 mile road ride, 11,000 feet of climbing and super amounts of pain in a bucket. I'm sure to be packing plenty of this:

But cross season starts soon!
