i love bike racing

i love bike racing...what can i say its just really awesome

i dont what is prompting this but on my ride yesterday i was listening to soome jamming tunes, the son was out, i was just rolling along and i couldnt stop smiling, i jstu was thinking about the season and all the seasons since ive started, and i wouldnt change a single thing in any of them

i started racing in 2003 and its been great, i dont know what i wouldve done these past years wihtout bike racing, its just such an incredible sport

this year was really great i had a blast, i had a lot of fun at a lot of races...the thing for me about bike racing is i have fun at every single race i do, i can't even think of one race where i wish i hadn't done it, there are some races i am unhappy about at the time, but honestly they're all great.  this year i did 56 races or so, i've done over 50 each of the past 3 years, i wish i could do more, i wish i could race year round, even if it meant doing terrible because i'd be soo burnt out.  i can wait and i hope ther eis a day where i can do up to 100 days of racing in a year.  this year 18 days of my racing came in july, that was a tough month, might've been the most fun month, certainly had the most big races with, fitchburg, red river, cascade and natz...and even hagerstown squeezed in

to get through the season i always need a little extra motivation, music always helps me with this, this season the song of the year was definitely colbie caillat's bubbly.  some people may think it's girly music but it gets me in the freaking zone...put this song on loop for 45' and when i got into the start house for a tt im always ready to tear some legs off, i just love it:

and a special shout out for steven kendall, he hooked my on a new colbie song, fallin' for you:

This is a surprisingly motivational post...except for your song selection ;) Beauty (or good music) is all in the eye of the beholder.

Man I'm jealous I wish I were in Colorado
