Do Work!

Right from the gun today tyler and Ian rolled. I felt it a great opportunity to stretch out the field and really find some safety from the scary corners at the Suffolk Smackdown 3 race. So it ended up being the 3 of us pictured, Andy D, and a couple more peeps in the break. VBW found two guys in the break and they definitely did not do the amount of work that the rest of us did. That's racing. They won. I scored my 4th 2nd of the year. Happy to be able to sprint, but this is getting silly.

I feel good about the race because no one can say that I didn't do my fair share of work. I mean, I ain't saying, I'm just saying. My chance will come.

After the race I was really lucky to find the only piece of glass on the entire course. My tubular started hissing like a stepped on rattler. I changed tires and spun out my legs for 35 mins with T. Karnes. He did good work today and more than his fair share of it too. When we got back, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I thought I was losing it. Drew M and I were talking the day previous about how we never get sick. I was sick I tell you. I was sick for 6 hours. I am just hitting the sack now and and hopefully everything will be better in the morning.

2nd is better than everyone except for one, that ain't bad. You'll get your day. I love the shades, I had buyer's remorse for a couple of seconds. Are those the blue iridium? How's the view?

Copy on the paragraphs, it'll make for easier reading.

As far as Berkeley goes, you need to pick the best school for your future and make a smart financial choice as well. Set all the other stuff aside. The "other stuff" just makes me laugh and shake my head a little bit.

Great job today!!! 2nd is always better than a crash out and something to be proud of. Do work at the TT tomorrow and get that tire fixed quick. Wrap that gavel up B!!! - Wick

Once again, I'd be happy to trade your 2nd for my repeat in 8th - just let me know.

You worked Saturday and Sunday. Great TT considering you got sick. Hope you're feeling better now.
