Crazy World Cyclocross Championships

Wow, what a crazy crash filled race.  Pretty much everyone from what I’ve read crashed more than once during the hour long race.  Tim emailed me the link to this – check out the video of the race – the three Belgian guys who crash are arguably the top 3 in the world.

Worth the Wait

Hey Guys and Gals,

I had a sneak peak at DaCapo Caffe the other day with Tim.  Trust me, it’s going to be way more than worth the wait!  Unbelieveable coffee in a super cool caffe.  Every detail had been painstakenly considered by Antonio.  This is going to be easily the best caffe in Canada. 

I can’t wait to enjoy excellent esspresso from Dacapo Beans only days old…now that’s fresh.

Dacapo Caffe….coming soon.

I’m So Rested?

This Sunday marks the end of my first rest week of 2007 – man did I need it. 

I rode with the boys on Saturday, outside for the first time for about a week and a half and man, did it ever show.  I was all over the trail and I couldn’t keep a straight line anywhere.  This demonstrates what happens when you ride the trainer too much that’s forsure.

Yesterday I booked my flight to Arizona and today I arranged the condo.  I’m joining a few guys to travel down for a week of training and race the 1st NORBA of the season.  For those of you who are not aware, the NORBA races are the biggest races in the USA.  I’m looking forward to it.  It’s always so fun to make travel arrangements. 

I made the mistake of thinking I would catch a high stick in the face today during my hockey game.  Sure enough, I got a stick right in the kisser.  This team was brutally bad w/ their sticks.  It just goes to show you that your thoughts do come true, so make sure they are good ones.  Don’t worry mom, I’m fine, just a little swollen lip that’s all.

I wonder how sunny Florida or Arizona is right now,


Jedi Apprentice

Another winter Sunday means another training ride in the snow.  Since my legs were pretty slammed from only one day off from training this week (Monday) I didn’t have much “go” in the legs, but I still managed to spin out nearly 3 hrs of MTBing with all my TTP buddies.  We were greeted this morning with a dusting of snow – just enough to make the trails more interesting….I saw Rodeo Roddi go down again as he tried to take Evan inside on a corner.

Tomorrow marks the return of my flexible work arrangements schedule, so if you’re wondering where Mike is at 7:30 tomorrow morning, rest assured I will be working away at my desk, bright eyed and bushy tailed.

I’ve been working on my Jedi skills, as I did some mind reading today – “how’d you know that!”

May the force be with you,
