Hooked up with ICC & Stoker Ace to ride the Greenways over to the Thursday night ride. Of course the usual subjects were around; The Hammer, Hulk Hogan, NYG(those new Ksyrium's are fast), & a few tri geeks. The Thursday Night loop is a pretty good one when you throw in the ride to Ozark. My senior citizen legs were having some better sensations today but still not up to snuff. I was able to avg about 12.789534 Kilojoules today with some peaks around 45.987544 KJ. I'm thinking I need to get with Scot V & have him talk to Carmichael about using my formula to train his truly top notch athletes.
I've been working on a little science experiment in my head lately & today I discussed it with resident physicist ICC. It involves a very hot day, a hotter bottle of water, & a CO2 inflater. My thinking is that since a tube valve freezes from CO2 shouldn't one be able to cool a bottle by shooting CO2 @ it? The next really hot day I'm going to pick up the super pack of CO2 cartridges from Wally World & give it a shot. I'll be sure to let everyone know how it turns out.
This weekend is finally the City Crits. The team of Champion seem to be on good form. So between them & Big Shark chasing MOBAR points the OCC boys will have their hands full making a good showing. But I have faith with State crit a week away we might have a few surprises up our sleeves. Sunday will be interesting with the bulk of the OCC 3's slated to hop in the 1/2/3 crit to attempt 75 min of hell.
Huffy can't get no respect. Cyclingnews.com have waited till a pro takes over the Green Jersey to post pics of the holder. While everyday posting pics of all 3 jerseys holders on the women's side. I'm thinking they are dissing the amateurs just a little much. They should have been excited over the David & Goliath story they had on their hands. Oh well he did ride to a very respectable 10th today. Greeker dropped out today suffering from what I hear is a very bad cut on his foot.
