See? I told you so

See? I told you so

Chance of showers? That's not enough. How about some blowing wind, biting rain, and misery? I need the preparation for the likely-miserable Harris-Roubaix.

I'm starting to get my race face on already. The Pinarello just got switched over to a new front brake lever, which means a little less cable in the way. Ironically, it won't matter much for tomorrow's race (except for the detail that I've cut the cable a little shorter than I would like), but it will help when I put the aerobars on for TTs in the future.

Every second day is not the new posting schedule.

Bad news on a happy day? Who cares! It turns out I probably won't be able to do the time trial I wanted to on Sunday, because of a conflict with a foreordained martini party. D'oh! But that's not a bad conflict, really, and I'll still be able to do two other races.

And my intramural floor hockey team lost a heartbreaking playoff game in a shootout after overtime. But we played well and had fun. So you can't say that's bad.

Argh. This non-posting has got to stop

After an aimless, grumpy Sunday caused by no racing caused by a small bend in the wheel that was detected too late because I didn't try to finish rebuilding the wheel until Sunday morning because I'm a ninny, I got better.

Sorry about that.

Sorry about that.

I know, I know, where did I go? It's been a busy few days, but I have stories. So quickly, in convenient bullet-point form:

-broke more spokes in my rear wheel and flatted my tire on the way to work Tuesday, forgot my pump at home.

-broke my nice tire lever trying to change the flat

Today's race was a failure, but a beautiful one. Lots went wrong. The bodge job of forcing spokes in that shouldn't have been there left me with a rear wheel that was pathetically out of true, and had a hop so bad it vibrated throughout the race. It scared numerous other riders. I was pretty cheesed off too; I'm sure it had at least some effect on my speed.

I coulda been a contender!

Well, good and bad bike stuff today. The good was the weather, and a worthwhile stop at my secret spot, which turned up three serviceable mountain bike rear wheels. The other good was a really nice half of a race. More than anything else, I went out and had a lot of fun!

This week has been hectic, but pleasant. Making a few plans for next month, planning to ride a few races this weekend, and I have to get over to Dave's place to buy a bunch of bike stuff. And the shed project is becoming critical, because I'm going to do the bike kitchen thing when it goes up.

I don't usually do this sort of thing....

A hockey note here, and mercifully, not the one you're thinking of.

Colby Cosh has posted a fascinating statistical essay discussing NHL team performance in a fairly inspired way.

He describes the strong relationship between goals and points: 2.8 goals scored or prevented gains a team one point in the standings, more or less, most of the time.

Kind of a quiet day, but I had fun. Started out the morning by taking delivery of the replacement LitterMaid; A UPS package is rare enough around here that it becomes a bit of an event.

Then, I went for a bike ride. It was a good ride: took the mountain bike up Burnaby Mountain, then went down Snake Trail on the north side. I was riding more obstacles and riding them better than ever before. I can really feel my pathetic dirt skills improving.
