I had a day off today and what better way to utilize your day off than to study for your finals. Man I just wish school would end already. But I did have some good news come my way today and that was that we just bought a motor pacing scooter!
This is basically brand new scooter and we ended up getting a great deal on it as well. The story of how my Dad found it is pretty cool. It had literally just popped up on Craigslist today and it had a great price for a bike with only fifty miles on it.
So my Dad calls up the guy and has a chat with him. My Dad tells him that he is getting the bike for our junior elite development team, then he asks the guy about the bike and he says; ‘hes got it up at a bike shop if my Dad wanted to take a look’ and my Dad asked which bike shop? The guy says; “Bike America in Overland Park.” The guy is an employee there and was selling the bike because he had just bought an awesome AR 15 and needed some extra cash. How bout that for a coincidence? Seriously, that was pretty darn sweet if you ask me.
So now I can tell my coach Barney to start incorporating some motor pacing into my training, which is going to rock and make me a way better rider, man I can’t wait!
As for tomorrow I will be at Tuesday Night Worlds and we’re going to have some good racing. There’s nothing better than a mid week crit race, that’s for certain.
