5 days to go

Till I start my favorite/least favorite journey. I love being in the South Pacific, but getting there couldn't be less fun. Fly to LA and sit there for 8 hours... Just to get on a plane for a 13 hour flight. Gross. No complaints though, I'm just happy to go again and test myself against the wheelraces, now that Kelyn and I have a better idea of what we're doing. Should be interesting to see what I can do after a hard summer and 3 months off the track. Still snowdrifts on turns 1 and 2, so all my on the bike training has been on the BT for the last month...

The good news is that when I get back there'll be an indoor velodrome waiting in Boulder. Looks like the track surface is done and their just plugging away at red tape to get the sucker open.

Open your velodrome! Get me off this trainer! I will pay to ride!

The question is whether or not you are willing to drive 2 hours to ride. Need I say more?

good luck in the wheelraces. I remember reading about your time down there last year.

The track in Boulder sure will be fun when I get down there in a few weeks! 142 metres with bankings near Alpenrose should be great practice.

It would be good to see a familiar face there.
