Going All the Way: Race Across Oregon

All right I'm Excited! So far training this winter has been mixed. But I just can't shake the vision from my mind. Flying up bake-oven, cresting Ochoco, and bombing down through the Indian reservation with a pack of wild dogs chasing from behind. The holidays saw some classic roller miles and a interspersed with a few cool days outside. Winter quarter hit. Between classes, research, exams, teaching, and eating.. There is not too much time for anything else.. But thinking back to last year.. I'm ahead of where I was then, and last year come July I was in the best form ever. For 2008 the team is coming back and were going solo.

Since 2005 things have changed. In 2005 we were rookies, to be honest, in Ultra each race is its own beast and confidence can be a curse. However, with a solos at RAO and The 508, two man teams at RAO twice, and Fireweed once, and three Ring of Fires. The team has been around the block a few times and consumed a our fair share of liquid nutrition shakes..

Its official, Friday the entry went in the mail. The crew is fired up. Solo-Team Pacific Power aka "Team Tartan" will be returning to the race where legends are made... Solo - Race Across Oregon...

Today's training, foundation, rebuilt the road bikes bottom bracket: Re-fitted the power cranks and cruised with Levi at the 2007 Tour of Cali for a little over an hour on the rollers.. Recovery: Why Recovery Hammer Whey of course..
