Kiss the Cobbles

Well today was an awesome race in a historic arena or velodrome. Todays race was at the Roubaix Velodrome. The same velodrome that Paris-Roubaix finishes on. The course was ridiculous, super hard and super technical. There were two downhills that were crazy muddy and were ridable but were faster to run down. I ended up struggling my way to 37th. It was a good race but some things went wrong. I am glad to have the first race jitters out of the way. in the words of Jay-Z "Onto The Next One"

Yesterday 4 of us went for a ride in the rain and well that was not worth it. I started out on the rollers and then decided to go out and then decided that it wasn't. It was raining so hard that it even soaked through a rain jacket. Plus the awful smell and things picking up from the road that smell, all of it made a good combination. Well that is about all that is happening in Izegem, wow, not much.

  1. Hey, 37th in a strong field like that is very respectable. If you're taking pics, post some up.

    Give'em hell!
