Happy St George Race- Riders!

The weather looks ideal, reaching to a sunny 60 degrees. The wind will be calm, the excitement of the start of the season will be wafting in the air. Riders will be sharing stories of their winter slumber trying to gauge who was able to train and who let it go. Old races will be revisited, good times reflected and new hopes will be harbored. New faces will be welcomed and perhaps old ones not there will be fleetingly thought of. The reunion is upon you, the family has gathered from afar. And the competition will be as intense as ever. Good Luck to all and know that you are in my thoughts.....



I have chosen another path for this year in the hopes that missing this sentinel race I might be healed to race many more- later.


For you see, I had knee arthroscopy-medical for knee scope- yesterday. I hope it went well (but the soreness now makes me hope even more that it was worth it). I had a torn meniscus repaired (really, it was just rota-rootered). I have been dealing with this for several years and it has progressively become worse so I figured I'd get it over with and see what happens. Let the rehab begin!

You're gonna be happy you did it. In 3-4 months you'll feel good and at the start of next year the pain and soreness will be a distant memory. Just don't get too anxious - you're season is done so rehab.
