This past weekend I raced in the second of four criteriums (circuit races) at the Marine Corps base over in Kaneohe. Good stuff happened and bad stuff. The bad stuff is that my wallet was stolen out of my truck. The good news is that I had a pretty good race. I finished 4th overall and even though I was bummed that I didnt win, I did beat some very good riders. Here is a picture of the race... I am in a new jersey...black and red. I like it better than the last colors I had.
Friday last week I was hit by a car and flew about 5 feet, landed on my wheels and kept going. The car stopped by my bike was ok, so I didnt see the need to stop. Monday I almost got hit by some dude texting someone on his mobile. I rode up next to him at the next light and let him have it. He started swearing at me and called the cops. I threw my water bottle at him as I rode away... some people are jerks... They have a thousand pounds of metal wrapped around them, I only have a thin layer of fabric. I wish drivers weren't so stupid. Anyways I am worn out and I need to study some organic chem.
