Balltown, Hummer, and Katie Degoursey

Yes, I'm getting behind on event posting. Now get your mind out of the gutter.

I did the Balltown Double Century June 8th in the streamliner, and it went...well...mostly wet, windy, hilly, and bumpy enough to shake my bike apart, but what would you expect? I took a 14mile detour, spent an additional half hour trying to figure out where the heck I was, broke my landing gear, watched my water storage system fall apart, and my GPS went dead all by mile 60. Oh, and it rained from 5:00am - 11am. Then I proceeded to walk the streamliner up about seven long arse hills, catch the lead pack, beat the sag vehicle to the 150mile checkpoint voiding myself of the other 50oz I should have been drinking, and finished about half an hour before second place. Aerodynamics, who knew, eh?



I did the Hummer Hammer June 9th and outsprinted Satan for third place cat3(though Satan is not in my category, mind you) and yes we were both off the back.

Last weekend was TOMRV and the weather was the best I've ever seen. My first time doing this ride on a recumbent(took the Bacchetta Corsa) and it went pretty well. Roadie hunting in the hills is fun stuff. And as a bonus I made some new coastline state dwelling friends(well two of them live in QC now, but anyways...) Be nice to girls from Florida.....
