As a member of the Bike Gallery-Trek/VW presented by Too Vanilla for You team, I've got access to a few performance enhancing "supplements". For example, yesterday Shannon gave me part of his burrito, and then I drank some Stumptown coffee at the shop before going to the Tabor race. I also got a chance to try out a sample of this stuff called Sportlegs. Anybody used this? Supposedly it creates lactic acid in your muscles before you begin to exercise, tricking your body into thinking it doesn't need to produce any more. I was cramping from the first lap, but still almost made it a personal record number of laps (8!) before I dropped out. So I thought it worked pretty well. But then Slaven suggested that Sportlegs might help you skip straight over the leg burning feeling and go straight to the leg cramp stage. That would be not so good.

Anyhow, somebody won the race and somebody finished second. I don't know. You can read about it. In a book.

I also raced PIR on tuesday where I managed to drop one of Dean's teammates out of the break. WTF? I thought they were supposed to be good. But there I was, givin'er in the break, and when I pull off he can't even come through. I guess maybe it was my fault. Maybe you're not supposed to pull off when you're in the middle of the break and you can't hold the wheel in front of you. I guess maybe wait until you're not screwing anybody but yourself. But seriously,if you read this, thanks for not beating me up after the race.

Oh, and per our agreement, I have to trash talk both Molly and Dean. Molly, you're so slow that I could outsprint you. And Dean, you're so slow that Molly could outsprint you.

I'm going to start signing off with my J. Lo name.

Peace out.
