Bonk, Bonk… Boooonk.

96.2 miles for me today, meeting the team in U Village and heading up to Snohomish and back.

View Interactive Map on

Bike – Klein Performance Touring 53-42 x 12-27 Sun Wheels

Breakfast – 2 eggs, bagel w/ cream cheese and an Ensure.

Ride Food – 1 powerbar, 1 bag of Shot blocks, 1 small botlle of water and 1 small bottle of HEED.  (not enough)

I actually felt great on the way out and tried to run over J Dunn in the sprint at River Road but got shot out of the back so fast on the way back it made my head spin.  I was able to catch the group along with John N and Kurt A but ended up off the main group as I stopped with Tony, Jeff and Gabe at a gas station so Tony could pump up his tire.  I lame ducked it back with the three as I was in no shape to take a pull and then actually hit part of a break off group as it turned out there was another flat (of the 7 total).  I split off from the group and road the trail at about 15 mph all by myself as I started getting shakey and my vision was in and out.  It was a long ride home.

We have some serious power in the group.  Alex T is always in race mode and can dust you without even trying.  Gabe T is the surprise.  I hope he focuses on the road racing and forgets that track stuff as he will own the road season.  Greg is Greg and Tony B is a damn freight train.

I’m having so much fun right now I have a hard time not smiling.  This is going to be fantastic.

Oh… Note to my teammates, LSD is Long SLOW Distance.  Not hammer until people puke.

That’s for February :-)

  • It was a good ride. We should go a bit slower next time tough :-)

  • Bonking sucks… sorry to hear that. Definitely LSD is prescribed. I’m all for that.
