Rollin' Low

Here is an image from the Bay Area Super Prestige (# 3) Night Race. This was the first time a cross race was held at night in the Bay Area and the venue managed to pull in quite a few spectators. The course was held at Sierra Point along HWY 101 and the stadium lights could be seen as far as Candle Stick Point. Tom Simpson and the people at Pilarcitos Cyclosports managed to build a compact course full of tight turns and bumpy terrain. Placed in the middle of the lap was a table top packed with spectators cheering and the sound of cowbells - this was the best part of the course. The 2008 Cyclocross season did not go as planned, but I met my personal goals for the year and will come back next season with fresh gear, fresh legs and a stronger desire to race.

12 - Fifteen - MMVIII

LOOK (no pun intended)... it's time to return to my roots and throw the leg over the mountain bike in 2009. Zsofia and I visited the Headlands over the weekend and I could not stop looking at the tacky trails and beautiful scenery in the distance.

The image above is the bike I might race this spring and summer - let's cross the fingers.

The last 3 months have been loaded with monumental transitions at home, work and with my bike racing. Z moved back to San Francisco in September and things have been excellent in the relationship department.
What else? The cyclocross campaign for 2008 did not go as planned, but I got to race 4 events at the Elite level and was happy with my results considering the LACK OF TRAINING - which is the last thing worth blogging about. Work and the winter elements have made it hard to train and there needs to be some balance in the near future. Last year I was single and had the time to ride at all hours of the night or morning, but reality has kicked in and it's time to adjust accordingly to be prepared for the road season.

Here are a few positive things going on in my life...

My mother just purchased a new Specialized Vienna 1 and will be commuting to work on Caltrain in the near future. She was experiencing some health issues over the past few months and decided to take control of things by adding more physical activity to her daily schedule - I'm very proud of her.

My father is going to start riding with my mother on the weekends - RIGHT, DAD?

Work has become EXTREMELY challenging, but it continues to keep my mind fresh and things interesting.

My brother found a band on Craigslist and has already done a few concerts with them - the music sounds great.

My cousin is going to graduate from her nursing program in January and has been interning at several places.

Sonia and Ralph tied the knot.

Zsofi's sister is going to give birth to a baby girl in the next few days.

For those who read my blog - I apologize for not keeping things up to date. Stay tuned for more and please feel free to leave any comments.

Thanks for reading.
