Joey - the Bearer of Good News
He called last night to inform me that The Tossers are playing House of Blues in Hollywood on March 25. If I were to race the classic, I wouldn’t be able to go, so I guess one thing came out of not making the cut. I will be doing a road race in the Fresno area that day, but the current plan is for Denise to drop me off in Hollywood on the way home & then Joey & whoever else goes will drop me home. It doesn’t matter how worked I am from the race; The Tossers will definitely light a fire under my tired arse.
More of picturesque Crafton.
Instead of racing the crap circuit race in Murrieta, I went out to Southridge to root Christie, Teri & Jeremy on. The dirt was perfect & there were times when I wished I was racing, until I put in a little bit of an effort & realized how crappy I felt. Turns out, I was only hours away from coming down w/a cold, so that explains everything. Anyway, Jeremy pulled off a second in his Sport age division class aboard a Trek Fuel 98 on loan from Johnson. The girls, in their first Pro race, lined up against Jimena Florit, which in-itself was a victory of sorts. Teri pulled the plug after the first lap. Turns out, she came down with the same bug that I did later that night. Meanwhile, Christie stayed in it & fought shifting issues all the way to the finish. They were both down on themselves, but they need to remember, it’s early & we have a long season ahead…
