The season has begun.

Last friday I headed down to Alkaburgie, N.M. with my new DU team. It was the first race weekend for the team this year, and I also planned on doing my first race of the year while we were down there.

The team rode awesome on Saturday with some top 10's in the Time Trial and Team Time Trial, and I think everyone rode good races in Sunday's crits with a lot of the team doubling up for two races on the day. I hopped into the last race of the day, with no expectation other than a hard workout. Since I wanted to get some good training in, I didn't hesitate when I had the chance to go with the early break. I worked way too hard in the break, but managed to pull off a 4th place finish even after working constantly for the final 43 minutes of a 45 minute race.

The trip home was a blast. I really like the team and we had a lot of fun. I even scored some pictures from one of the kids cameras.

After reviewing the pictures I've decided that I do like the new RM~Izze kits. I was skeptical at first, but I think it looks pretty good after all. Today was an hour of easy spinning, a great breakfast with Scott, and a lazy afternoon. I work tonight at 4:30 so I might try and nap before I head in. That's all I've got for now, thanks for checking in.
