Sometimes things go your way...


One of my ex- team mates was looking at the USA Cycling rankings and noticed that Jacob and I were ranked number one NATIONALLY. Jacob I can understand. Me, I do a really good job, but lets be honest, BJ beats me. I'm thinking the races they used in the ranking must be weighted heavily for last year, because BJ raced 1-3 last year, and without her, I won most of the tt's I entered.

BJ is ranked #1 in her age group. I'm sure that she'll be whopping up on me when the next ranking comes out. For now I guess I'll bask in the glow of this, as it will probably never happen again! Of course, this and $5 would probably buy me a cup of coffee at Starbucks if I drank the nasty stuff!


I copied the picture from velophotos.net. That guy takes some of the best cycling photos I've ever seen. He took one of J's infamous crash that we call "Julie saves the bottle." I liked it so much I had to buy it. Its the most balanced photo, with great color, and completely shows what its like in those mindless nano-seconds right after you go splat. If you haven't taken a gander at his site before, happy surfing!
