Riding Update

I am easy back into the flow of riding. I started up at the beginning of this month, and things are about to get really painful. I have a rest week this week, but my first Base/Build week is up next. We enjoyed some good team rides on Thanksgiving break. Thursday was Usery Repeats; we did four at really high power. Friday was a grueling 60 mile EOP ride (most TSS points ever). It turned into a bonk eventually.

Our first race is in within 60 days.

Encore

The Lions did it again, only this time I was completely prepared.
My dad and I collaboratively predicted the Lions to lose 41-28. We predicted them to dominate early on, enter the 4th quarter leading 28-24, and collapse in the 4th.
The Lions dominated the first half. They physically abused Tom Brady and went into half time 17-10. They entered the 4th quarter tied at 24. They proceeded to give up 21 straight points, lose 45-24, and torturously strangle my heart with icy cold hands. Only the Lions.

This breaks my heart

I know Bike Boy doesn't usually talk about this things, but I beg you to consider going to this website and vote "give birth."

Of Course



Joey Harrington

Detroit Lions starting quarterback from 2002-2005. He was drafted to be the future of the Lions, to save them. He was placed behind one of the worst offensive lines of all time. He went out there every game and took sack after sack. They called him Joey Sunshine. He was always looking up, after every depressing loss. But the fans were sick of him. I believe m
y remember myself being tired of him. But he was merely the target, the product of the Lions' formula. The Lions killed Joey Harrington's football career. They took the bright hope he was and destroyed it.
But the story didn't end there. The Miami Dolphins faced the Lions on Thanksgiving Day, 2006. Harrington led the Dolphins to a 27-10 win, passing for 3 touchdowns.

Jon Kitna

Detroit Lions quarterback from 2006-2008. He through for 4,000 in his first two seasons. He led the Lions to a 7-9 season in 2007, the greatest Lions season I had ever seen. His faith gave him great leadership with the Lions. Kitna was exposed by the awful offensive line. He took a vicious pounding every game and sacrificed his body for the team. The fans, including myself, were discontent, and demanded that he leave. We traded him to the Dolphins.
But the story did not end there. November 21, 2010, the Dallas Cowboys faced the Detroit Lions, with Kitna leading the Cowboys. Who didn't know that the Cowboys would win. We knew from the get-go that Detroit had absolutely no chance. Kitna ran for a 29 yard touchdown to seal a 35-19 win. Who didn't see this coming?

For my birthday, my parents gave me some cool dude cycling shoes. The Specialized S-Works. Thanks!

Tragic Irony

This week's Fantasy Football matchup. My team vs. Dad's team. The sad part is that my dad relinquished control of his roster to me many weeks ago. The sad part is that his team is quite good, and I haven't the cruelty to put some of his players in my team. Because of this, I get handed my fourth straight loss.
Looks like my string of good luck is over.

DNA Racing Juniors

Yes, this is a plug. The World Wide Web is a great way to get information out. I'm looking for junior cyclists in Arizona, ages 10-18. Experienced racers, new riders, and kids that haven't ridden a bike yet.
DNA Cycles Racing has laid the foundations for a junior team. We have no more than 5 juniors on the team rounding up. However, we are officially creating a junior team this year. We will have at least 3 certified coaches. There are a lot of other details that I'm not exactly sure about. Check out our new website that should be way more updated near the end of the month: www.dnacyclesracing.com
I hope to see you on the road!

Great Times


I spent Friday night at a cast party with my drama people. It was a very memorable time celebrating many memorable moments. Thank you, cast and crew of "The Importance of Being Earnest".
