Bring the pain.

24Apr09

Tomorrow is Deer Trail, a mid-west-ish road road in eastern Colorado (aka:Kansas). Looks like about 51 Pro 1-2 riders are registered. All the big Colorado teams are fielding good squads. Natural Grocers (new Vitamin Cottage name), Subaru Auto-Vista, Rocky Mountain bicycles, my team Primal/Hart, Excel Sports, Horizon Organic, Rio Grande, etc, etc. While I think there are 20 guys who can win this race, we should all watch out for RMCEF/Westside Aussie rider Chris Winn. He threw down some ridiculous results in the Sea Otter pro races last weekend (8th in the crit and top 20 the rest of the weekend). That may not seem like a lot, but last time I checked he had no team mates, he’s still amateur and he was against big pro teams including Levi Leipheimer. I’m pretty sure he’s the only amateur to finish all the races and top 10 the crit, which is HUGE.

Deer Trail is my kind of racing and with some rainy weather potentially on deck, I couldn’t be more excited. I love road races in crappy weather. The harder the better. We’re fielding 5 guys and 6 if So-Pro-Drew can argue his way onto the start list.

Nice work forgetting to register dude. (McFly … anybody home?)

Anyway, it should be fun, hard and fast. Stay posted!

UPDATE: Drew is registered! Now I don’t have to make him a number in adobe illustrator – YES!
