It's Racing Time

A quick post from JFK Airport. I'm on my way to Valley of the Sun for the first race of the year. The camp ended last Sunday with a nice hard 5 hour ride that included a 45 minute climb. It was a fun but tough week. This Sunday is also the start of the Tour of California and we have a solid team there with both Tom Zirbel and Ben Jacques-Maynes as contenders for the prologue on Sunday. As for me this will be a return to Valley of the Sun a race that as you can see in one of my first posts here was not very kind to me last year. I am hoping that this year will be different and eventhough this week wasn't ideal with only 3 days of one and a half hour rides in my legs I am still feeling really good after a week at camp. Tomorrow is the Time Trial followed by a 90 mile road race on Saturday and a criterium on Sunday. Gotta go getting called in. And I got upgraded. Life is good.
