I full weekend at Battenkill with Britt and the Murphy brothers. Kyle started us of by dropping his race numbers in the portajohn. Evan won the Cat 2 race in emphatic style. Then proceed to demolish a meatball sub. Britt killed it the next day in the Women’s Pro/1/2 while Evan and I graced her field with our underwear clad presence on the climb of Joe Bean Rd.
You’re welcome Women’s PRO/1/2 field.
Dan does a good job of summarizing my weekends.
I feel like I always have more things to get done than I have time to do them.
I didn’t mention anything on this blog back in September when it happened but after my most successful road racing season thus far, my coach and manager of my team decided to step down. This news was hard for me and the ladies but having had such an awesome season as a group, we knew we needed to figure out how to keep a good thing going. Myself and a team mate stepped up to take on the management roll and after a lot of hard work and commitment we are so proud to represent an amazing team and group of sponsors for the 2013 road racing season.

the10speedcognition asked: Had the chance to watch you and Dan rip it up at Grants this morning. Great racing by you both. Good luck with the rest of your season! Hopefully next time I can stop and say hello.
Hey, thanks. We both felt OK about our races… not amazing but decent. I was just happy to bring in a lot more confidence than ever before to that race. Say hi next time.
Anonymous asked: What were your thoughts on the retul fit? Did your position change much and did you think it was worthwhile? Just curious, congrats on your riding success so far :)
Thanks. The Retul system is cool because it basically gathers all of the dimensional info that you and your bike have and by documenting it really well you can save it, make changes, try them out, and figure out where your body can be most powerful and efficient. You also see how your set up compares against the average angles of other riders. In my fit Allan from enduranceWERX was super helpful and we ended up lowering my seat and putting it back a smidge….I am feeling pretty good about it. But the neat part is also that if I didn’t like it we could return my position to exactly as it was before….or change it entirely but we would know more either way.
In November there was a German journalist hanging around at a our NYC CX practice and a few local bike races… According to my Swiss houseguests from last week, this is the largest cycling magazine in Germany.
Although there are many inaccuracies in the article, I like the last paragraph….(translated from the German)-“Her boyfriend Dan with just two guys at the front of the race provides a hard-fought battle, in each round, the leadership changes. At the end, he loses to two of them just in the sprint. Nevertheless, he gets a hug from Brittlee. And an open beer in the hand held tight. Bottles rattling loudly together, the foam dripping into the mud. “That was awesome”, says Brittlee. “Yeah, right awesome”, Dan replied.”
