Team USA

Quick Sound-Off: I think there's a difference between playing to win and playing not to loose. It seems like I'm seeing more examples of the latter in Team USA this year. It's a subtle but important difference. Speed Skating, Figure Skating, Half-Pipe, Hockey, the list goes on. Now I love the Olympics just as much as anyone else, some may say I'm a little fanatical every two years. I think Team USA is the strongest out there physically but mentally I think we are used to winning and think it's some sort of entitlement. Just the two cents of the Arm-Chair Olympian. How do we overcome???

New Uni's

Check out the new Summit Freewheeler's race kit! Freshened up quite a bit this year vs. the past 8 years of blue and white. The ladies and guys didn't like so much white on the uniform. Very hard to clean and very revealing once wet! Check these babies out:

Super excited to be riding through NE Ohio with these!

**Sigh** Riding a bike in my basement is not fun.

I live in NE Ohio, we have 10-12" of snow on the ground. It's currently 14 degrees outside but feels like 4 as the temperature slides down to a high, yes I said high, on Tuesday of -4 degrees. That means the warmest it will be all day is below zero. I don't mind riding in cold but this is ludicrous.

Soo...I rode inside last night. My workout consisted of a quick warm up, three 8-10 minute steady state intervals with 3 minutes rest in between and an every so brief cool down and stretch. Boring.

Here's a picture to explain how exciting this was:
