It’s inevitable. Shortly after returning from a vacation, all hell breaks loose.  This sums things up: It’s Wednesday, but it feels like some new day that hasn’t been invented.

Raced the historic Niwot crit in Niwot, Colorado.  Half-wheel Hendy and I (some goons stole our helmets … swear): (Now the long version). Things sound […]
