Tire Gods hate me

I have no idea what's going on but I went almost 2 years without a flat and in the last 2 months I've had about 10 flats. All on different tires and different wheels. Just to qualify it for all of you who were thinking I was mounting tubes in a tire filled with glass. I finally got to do the Thursday night crit and I flatted on the first lap (just realized I flatted in front of the parking lot both times. Not too bad as far as timing goes) swung into the parking lot changed out the tube and did about 10 laps and flatted again. WTF?? I've spent about $35 on tubes in the last two months. That's fucking stupid. Aghhhh...

On another note, I need to race. I haven't raced in forever. Every time there has been a good race I'm always away on that weekend. Now it's going to be July and I'm going to suck in the heat.

On another side note, I hate when people are aloof. If you got something to say then say it. I just hate when people are your buddy one day and the next they act like they don't know you.

It's about to get nutty

So I haven't posted in awhile for many reasons, laziness mostly but I've been taking the last month to slow down and enjoy life and the family. Not that I needed to fall in love with cycling anymore then I already have but not racing for a month and just riding this new bike around has reminded me how much I love the art of cycling. Having one of the best bikes ever made doesn't hurt either.
But as the title suggests this is just the calm before the storm. 'Cross season is coming up and I'm going all out this year. I'm going to sell the motorcycle and buy a moped to do motor pacing all summer and fall. The 'crosss team (all 4 of us) is getting together to plan a pre-season workout schedule. It's going to be nuts.
Now to get this new Dugast glued up...
