Last Cyclocross Race Of The 2017 Season



After a few weeks of planing and two days worth of building, none of us anticipated the sunrise that would literally stop us in our tracks. Racers from Salt Lake City to Denver Colorado braved the 14F/ -10C temperatures and tackle a true cyclocross course out here in Fruita Colorado.

Thats not meant to be an arrogant statement but it is a true course that met all of the UCI rules and obstacle definitions. Challenges if you will.

By the time we hit 45F/ 7C, the course became fast and riders were stoked. Tight turns but with a flow, off camber slopes but ridable, and nature barriers for dismounting and running over. Another hit was the snowman design in the soccer field. Their strava lines painted out hidden patterns of candy canes and a big ol snowman waving hi. Pretty Cool If You Dig Strava.

All the work was well worth it because the feed back was over top. I normally read these e-mails and there is always a BUT. We also broker 100 reregistered racers AND not one complaint!! Again, all the effort and attention to details paid off. 2018 is going to be unreal and exciting!

Mountain And Desert Racing - MAD Racing

RADIO SHOW: I was asked/offered a time slot on Christmas Day. I couldn't be happier about it!! I dove deep in the archives and pulled the most obscure YET awesome tunes!! I then got all hot on A Christmas Story clips to mix in over the top of Christmas instrumentals. I Cant Wait!!

Hits to be played are as follow BUT not in this order. In Fact, Not Sure What To Open With. I want an opening tune that will capture the attention of the listener BUT not cause them to change the channel. So I have Brenda Lee - Rockin Around The Christmas Tree, Funky Funky Christmas - Electric Jingle, Jethro Tull - A Christmas Song, Canned Heat - Run Run Rudolph, Steve Vai - Christmas Time, and then the weird stuff like Charlie Brown's Whats The Meaning, Dogs Bark Christmas Song, Weird Al Yankovic - Crazy Santa, Cheech & Chong - Santa Claus & his Old Lady, All in the Family - Christmas Jesus, and a bunch of well known A Christmas Story clips.

So What Do I Open With??? When Do I Come Up For Intro??

Strava Action: Very random here, the General Manager and Manager were chatting at Crossroads and we all got to talking about riding in the winter because I had my bike helmet in my hand. We got to BS'n away and I mentioned that I had wondered if I could hit 2,000 miles on the commuter and that I am currently at 2,800 miles for 2017. So MJ got all fired up and explained to me that if I rode 22 miles of the next 9 days that I could hit 3,000. She Was Fired Up And VERY Encouraging. She even pointed out how I would have two days off with that particular schedule.

I was content with 2,000 miles and the extra 800 were a bonus. I was also stoked that my rear wheel is in good shape and not one flat. I do have a plastic strip inside the tire, 1/4 bigger tube so that it doesn't thin out when pumping up to 45psi, and they do have slime for sure. We have to take these percausions because of all the goat heads out here in the high desert.

But 3,000 miles?? On the Commuter Bike?? Do I Really Want To Push Through Over The Next Few Days?? Will We Ever See Snow?? Cant I Just Shoot For 3,000 in 2018?? How Much Water Have I Consumed This Past Year?? How Many Times Have I Shifted Gears?? How Many Near Misses With Automobiles Have I Encountered?? Why The Phuc Did My Car Insurance Go Up A $100 Damn Dollars?? And Whats My Opening Tune On Christmas???

The ButtCracker


A vegetable stew simmered on the stove top while the wild rice finished absorbing some H20. The night became even richer when AJ offered The Dude and I a Gin Martini. One Sword, Two Jalape├▒o Stuffed Olives, and now The Nutcracker is looking a little more intriguing. 


Professional performers from Boston were flown in to present an "Off-Broadway" adaptation of the Nutcracker. Regardless, I was stoked!!! The wardrobes were elegant and the dancers told a beautiful story without ever speaking a peep. I am always amazed by how the orchestra pit brings life to the stage. Not life but depth. 



We were offered the privileged to walk up on stage afterwards for a meet and greet with photo opportunities. Of course I left like a giant standing next to some of these dancers. 

There were two ballerinas in particular that I searched for because I wanted to complement them for the softness of their foot work. This means that a number of times the "tapping" of the shoes were louder than the orchestra but these two gals were light, graceful, and seemed to really appreciate my positive feed back. Or they were just being extremely polite.

I will say that walking around the big stage was a real treat for me. In my world of make believe, I felt as if I was part of the cast. I probably had a bigger smile than the performers. Maybe it was the martini kicking in??




Above is the BEFORE photo. MAD Racing is hosting their last cyclocross race of 2017 this Saturday. BELOW is Klishy smoothing off the stump with his chainsaw.


BELOW is the final look. The fast line is hitting the jump off the stump and straight lining it under the fallen tree. This course is going to be BEYOND radicle and I can't wait. HERE is a link to a sweet article in Sundays paper about the last event and promoting the next race. 

Notice all of the out of town racers with comments about coming to GJ to race. Pretty Cool. The photos in that article paint a killer story as well.


And Now ..... A Montage Of The Boy Dog!!! I was cleaning out the hard drive and found a number of old videos and time lapse clips. So I threw together a quick best of The Boy Dog Sleeping. Hope Ya Dig.




Stay Strong,
Cheers

November's Numbers are in The Books



STRAVA NUMBERS:  November produced the second largest number in HOURS at 29. My cycling world turned out 363 miles, 12 personal records, 35 activities, and 25.5 "running" miles for the month. This brings me to 2549.7 miles for 2017 and I don't believe that I am on pace for the 3,000 mile goal for the year. OOPS

November missed out as the top cycling month by 8 miles. Strava recorded 370 miles back in August of 2017. Another drag statistic is the fact that I only hit 300+ miles on the bike 3 times this year. Considering I live in Western Colorado, I can label my own effort as LAME A$$.



However, I reframed from driving the car to the office ALL year! In Fact, I couldn't tell you when was the last time I filled up the old automobile. I only bring this up because the oldies were here for Turkey Day and they just couldn't get over the gas prices out here. They drove up from Sunny San Diego. I laughed during this particular conversion because I told them that I am sitting on a half of a tank and couldn't remember when I had filled up last. Classic Reaction & Questions Followed



My gas light didn't come on but I did drive quite a bit while they were here and I will need to fuel up before I drive anywhere again. I don't mind driving. Its just that I live in a flat valley and can ride just about anywhere in the same amount of time as drivers. REALLY??? Yes, GJ Colorado has absolutely NO synced up traffic lights. And in the winter, everyone lets their car sit and warm up for at least 10 minutes, which cracks me up. I can ride to the office or gym in under 10 minutes if I really mash down the pedals while taking a few chances.



TURKEY DAY: Went very well. The Dude worked until about the noon hour and the oldies were in charge of the bird. I have traditionally brought over garlic mash potatoes and followed that trend with an added addition. I came across a blog site that had a whippin butternut squash quinoa casserole. Now, lets have a little chat here about alcohol. Spirits If You Will

The Boy Dog and I arrived at The Dudes with our prepared dishes and a 64 oz growler of Palisade's Off Belay I.P.A. I was then offered a 12 oz bottle of Stone I.P.A. from San Diego. So I figured I would toast with that and share the growler when everyone arrives. HA



Fast Forward - I poured the last of that growler during our group partners game of Scattergories and finished that last pint during Mexican Train Dominos. Thats 76 ounces of excellent brew consumed by myself because everyone had their own vices. I had just enough of a buzz on that I passed on the spiced rum concoctions later on in the evening. THANKFULLY!! Dodged That One

As a recap, everyone got along so well. I enjoyed the football games but really didn't pay much attention. We sat a bakers dozen for dinner and nobody left early or stepped on anyones toes. Thats pretty damn remarkable considering all the factors in play. Epic Sunsets





ORTHO BIONOMY: Let me just start with, I Have The Best Clients! I really do. Almost everyone of my clients in Nov left a card on my desk at some point. I am not saying that this wasn't the norm back in massage days but everyone bearing gifts in NOVEMBER?? Very Thoughtful


Oh, and gift certificates?? I have sold 15 gift certificates last month and have a feeling that a few more will go as we are 24 days of shopping away from the big day. Way Cool

Its way cool because these clients are helping spread the word about Ortho and exposing others to the benefits. I couldn't be happier



RADIO SHOW: My next show on air is in about 20 hours from now. I am hosting the Mt Bound Radio Show at 6am on December 2nd. I Cant Wait!!
