Cold last week. Warm over the weekend. Rainy and cold today. Forecast to be in the 70s next week. And I wonder why my sinuses are staging a coup d'etat...
Tour of Oman $ list
After salaries are paid to riders and staff, fees and taxes are removed, and the UCI takes their chunk, going to Oman COST the teams money.
Dean and I met Saturday for a road spin. On the way out of the 'wood, HWF, Chad and Timmy caught up with us. Kind of nice to have a little group on a Saturday morning.
Once out, Dean wanted to go long, and turned off. I had furniture shopping to do, so I rolled shorter with the others.
It was a nice little ride. Even turns on the front. Nice and steady...until we encountered a broken bottle...
And a couple of guys in an old truck stopped to make sure we were okay. Sorta random. Definitely cool.
Once booted, we rolled on, and finished a nice 65km spin.
And instead of furniture shopping, I played futbol in the yard with Junior Management, and cleaned some mystery crust off the Ridley. Solid afternoon.
Sunday's wake-up call was met with rain, so I rolled over. After sleeping in until 8:30 (what?), and noticing the rain had stopped...for a while...I kitted up, and got out on the bike.
I honestly don't think it rained at the far end of The Powerstation.
Oh, and did I mention I rode in shorts? All that was needed was some Mad Alchemy Russian Tea...
And if you missed Lady Gaga on the Oscars last night, you missed something very special...
And she did it while Julie Andrews watched from stage left!!
Rainy Monday. Keep your heads down.
