Today I drove to Skyline Drive for the first time and did climbing repeats to the visitors center. I wanted to do that 60 mile loop, but didn't have much riding time cause I broke my derailleur hanger and had to track one down and replace it before I left. I love that climb, it reminds me of California - but not as steep. I called some of my teammates before to see if they wanted to come, and here are their excuses:
Dave Fuentes - Had to do something to represent his job (meaning = scared to ride w/ the Chuck)
Todd Hipp - Had to travel for work (he gets scared when ever Dave is scared)
Russ Langley - Had to work, but wanted to come (scared but to proud to show it by pretending to have a job)
Keck Baker - I think he just peed himself and hung up. (very scared)
Sean Berry - School (yeah whatever, isn't it Christmas break? meaning = scared)
Brian Butts - Didn't answer the phone (pretending to be racing in China by passing off pictures of his twin brother who is really there to be him).
Evan Fader - Fearing the call, quit the team and joined Richmond Pro. (Need I say more?)
At this point I gave up, and just went at it alone. Come on guys, were all buds and I'll wait for you at the tops of the climbs!
