Finally getting back to racing!

Oh thank heavens summer is over. It's finally time to start racing again. I just can't stand that hot summer weather. Doesn't everybody know that the best weather for bike riding is September to May? That being said I've started preparing a bit. This of course is a multiphase process:

  1. Help Start the new Wheelworks Cyclocross team! - Check.
  2. Acquire New CX Bike - Check. (2010 Specialized Tricross Expert w/ upgrades-Thanks Specialized!)
  3. Acquire fancy new skinsuit and team kits - In the Mail.
  4. Retire the road bike for the year - Check.
  5. Start Riding trails - Check.
  6. Plan out Racing schedule: Check (below)
  7. Race them bikes
