Chris Winn: Ramblings From The Road

Groundhog Saturday

With Green filling the passenger seat it was time again to head to everyone's favorite nowhere town and bust heads at a little punk rock show called Modella Graded Scratch Race 2006. After having a good day there last time its always fun to come back and try and stir the big roadie pot once again. With the same course, but a graded race this time the racing tactics would be a little different and well in a nutshell it kinda went like this...coupla early breaks unsuccessful. coupla solo breaks that dangled like a t bag for awhile, unsuccessful. Coming into the last climb fellow mtber Spink does what he does best and turned the screw and ending up with 5 of us away with about 10km of dead flat, straight roads to finish.

My thoughts of being in the winning break were soon shattered as the main bunch caught us before the last turn onto the dead straight drag finish. Okay. Bunch sprint time. Not really my forte cause I ain't got much HP's under the hood compared to most roadies but its the finish, you have a crack regardless....sitting in the first couple of spots on a strong wheel the pace crankin', the shock kinda hit me that with the right timing this could work out....coming around it was game on big time with the bars flexin' like spaghetti to the line with Spink only half a bike length behind chargin' it was mtber vs mtber...somehow I managed to hold for my second win of the road season....and almost passing out in the process...ahh the joy...and in so much 02 debt I'm pretty sure I caught a glimpse of Elvis...Cobain and Lennon..yep she was deep alright! The Green had a solid day in the B grade bunch putting some more racing miles in the tank...keep at it bro...and that was all she wrote for the day...madd. lator cw.

I just had to post a pic of my new #1 food...man these things are another level...aint no false advertising people...Golden...
