Rich put on a great race. I wasn't to sure about racing the backside of Castlewood but it was a lot of fun and brought back a lot of memories of when I first started riding. It was probably one of the most mellow races I have had. Mitch and the rest of the local endurance guys were still pretty tired from the 6hr race the weekend before and I was still tired from our vacation. The race started off slow to the first climb. Picked it up a little and got a good lead. Nothing much changed the rest of the race, just rode. I got a flat on the 5th are 6th lap that maybe cost me 4 minutes. Picked up the pace some after that just to make up for lost time. Going into the last lap I realized that if I pushed it I could make the cut off and do another lap. For the first time in a 3hr race that I can remember I didn't go after making the cut off to do another lap. . Yep it was a mellow race! Finished in First place, Rich hooked us up with a awesome payout for the marathon class, thanks big! Ended up with a hrt rate in the 150s and a little over 36 miles avg speed 12.1. One of these days I will get the garmin to upload again. Looking forward to Burnin at the Bluff 12hr!

We were not sure how Lucas would do this time flying. Last time we went to Denmark he was kind of a handfull but he also had to sit in my lap the whole time. This time he was great. We left for Hamburg airport at 3 30am, 8 30pm St Louis time and didnt reach our door step until 6 30pm the next day. He slept some but not much. It didnt take long after we got home and he told Mom he wanted to go to bed, for anybody that has a 4yr old you know that never happens!
Thumbs up for another great trip!

We had spent a day last week over by the North sea. Me and Johan discovered a bike path with a small sign. The small sign was a simple little sign that showed a nice bike path that reaches all the way around the North Sea. I asked my father in law what he thought. Its funny because this is how it starts. With Johan I dont think he ever thinks anything is impossable just maybe tough in finding the time to do it. He already has some good ideas on the best way to accomplish this. With his experience in long distance riding. Finished the Paris Brest Paris twice, the first time in 2003 which is what got me interested in endurance racing to begin with. I think its a must, a great long term goal. It would be at least 3 are 4yrs down the road anyway but that is what I love about the endurance stuff, your always finding new ways to push yourself farther. Links. The North Sea The main link. The North Sea cycle route. This would be awesome!
