quads, wheels, blah blah blah

it is thursday. no points racing for me tonight. i am bummed cause i feel like racing, but i am trying to rest for the weekend ass-whooping session. but, thursday doesn't just mean points racing day, it also means it is quad measuring! 60.25 I'm back, baby!

just a day more until track states. i am very excited! i figure cause i am new and don't know what i am doing, i am just going to try every event.

my wheel sponsor really came through BIG TIME. fred is letting me borrow his zipp 440 wheels! ahhhh!!!! i am very nervous cause they look expensive and totally bling bling. i just hope i don't fall and crack them. i am kind of scared riding something so nice. but, it is also very exciting cause i always look at people's fancy wheels and wonder what it feels like to ride on them, and this weekend i guess i'll find out. hopefully these wheels will mean i will only get lapped 2 times instead of 3.

i keep fred's name on my jersey cause he is my awesome wheel sponsor.

beth - you'll do great this weekend. Good luck! Oh, and I'm glad your back amongst the 60cm club. I was getting a little worried last week.

You go girl!! Kick some booty!!! Don't be afraid of the nice wheels. They'll shave some slow off the speed. Man, I miss the track. Gotta do the mad miles now for ultra season. I'll be there in spirit cheering you on.

ooohhhhhhh, fancy wheels! nice! but i've still got my money on your quads instead of fred's wheels. good luck tomorrow!

i'm excited because i'm building up a set of track-specific tubular wheels. i got all the pieces really cheaply and just need to pay for one wheelbuild and one tire, so i figured that i'd go for it. i'm excited!
