April 11, 2005


Things have moved pretty quickly for me in the last three weeks. It wasn't too long ago (3.5 weeks to be exact) that I was still doing indoor 45 min spin classes. Then it was eating two snickers bars and a coke to make it home on a 3 1/2 hr ride. Yesterday, I raced a 120km Ontario Cup road race as a Cat 1.

Nick and I have both been generously given spots on the Espoirs Laval elite team for the 2005 season. It should be interesting. They have a real good mix of young riders and some older guys (like me). Our first trip with the team was a lot of fun and I am really looking forward to doing some more races.

That's not my bike. I borrowed one for the race. (ya, that is a race-radio hanging out of my ear)

The race in Ontario actually didn't go too bad. I suffered pretty good and finished somewhere in the main bunch. It was a pretty tough course (30 laps of a 4km auto racing circuit with a climb each lap). Other than biking I have been forgetting about school. Two more weeks and exams are done.

Very impressive Alistair. I smell a comeback.

So they just have 60cm frames kicking around, eh? You get to borrow it all summer?

No comment on Nick's pecs (who wrote that?).
