What I've been doing a bit of lately is using Spinervals - Time Saver workouts that I burned onto my iPod, so I can get the vocal cues of when to go hard etc. Because they are only about a half hour each, I've been combining two of the three, doubling up on one, or just adding a steady state zone2 (endurance) half hour session to it, at least to make an hour long workout. In fact that's what I did this morning.
|1st half was the Spinerval session, 2nd half was mostly steady state zone2.|

I mean, is this serious? This just doesn't seem right. Just completely overturn the ruling? I understand he's a national hero and all. He may end up being the greatest cyclist since fancy pants, but if it looks like he's cheating, it needs to be looked at seriously. I mean really seriously. This just seems like the Spanish fed is ignoring any facts in the case.

So the random sequence generator says comment number 2 is the winner. Tomás please email you're mailing addy to anello.grande[-at-] gmail.com and I'll mail them out to you. However, if I don't hear from you by next Friday, I'll award the gloves to the next comment the random sequence says (#3).
Now that that's over, I can watch Metallica play Damage Case with Lemmy on VH1.

These are brand new black gloves in the package. They are pretty light, full finger gloves, great for mountain biking, or gravel rides. I've seen online prices for these at $24. One last thing, I need a way to contact you if you win to get a mailing addy. So make sure you leave an email or some form of contact info.

Dang, I keep saying that one of these years I'm gonna do Leadville, and one of these years I'm going to. Just not sure when. But watching the trailer puts me in the mood to get on the bike and ride.
Maybe not this exact one, as this is built up be me. Build your own and maybe you can win it. Just follow this link: http://myorbea.cyclingnews.com/.
Well maybe don't, then there's more of a chance for me to win mine, right? Someone's gotta win it.

At this point there's well over 550 riders committed and all said and done, could top 600. It's amazing to me how many riders are interested in coming to our corner of the world to ride a gravel road race.
On a side note, here's a link to a friends post on what the Almanzo means to him and some thoughts on "free" racing. http://rideonpurpose.blogspot.com/2011/01/what-almanzo-means-to-me.html It's a very good post, and well worth the read. And maybe give you a little to think about.
Finally, tomorrow (2/1/2011) begins registration for the Almanzo Market. http://almanzomarket.weebly.com/ If you are in, or know of people in the bike industry, this may be a great way to connect with riders who want to compete, but are put off by the prices of regular racing.
Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos doesn't shop at Costco!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored.
