Weekend Madness

Man. What a weekend. How to start?

Friday: Went out to Hains point and did like 25 miles of laps with some guys at the point. Great stuff. Then as I was getting ready to leave I accidentally locked myself out of my car. What a dumbass move. Thanks to my teammate, I was able to go to the police station, where they called a tow truck to open my car. By the time the tow truck had come and gone it was already like 9pm.

On Saturday I did both Cat 5 races at Fort Ritchie Criterium. Didn't have the best legs but still gave it my best shot. Was able to keep up with the pack in both races and managed to get top 20 finishes in both races. In the second race my 10-14 teammate, Andrew Cullinane, had an awesome race. He spent bascically the whole race at the front (sadly though he sorta died in the last 2 laps of the race).

After that came the Mens Cat 4 where my other teammate, Dan Schwartz claimed the victory in his first ever Cat 4 race. Dont get me wrong, the guy is strong. He managed to win the ACC Points jersey in his college division by riding without teammates in most of his races. Also Bert Garcia claimed a awesome 6th place in the same race.

Although being Mother's Day on Sunday, I decided that nice weather called for a long ride. I met up with Bert and some other people at the GW Campus. We rode an great 58 miles and enjoyed some awesome BBQ along the way.

Man, what a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Thanks for the kudos Harry.

    For anyone that is wondering: If you're are heading to or from Poolesville on your bike, Uncle Charlie's BBQ near the corner of Seneca and Darnestown is a magnificent mid-ride lunch. I've been there 3 times with some NCVC guys and every time, the folks at the pit bbq joint just spoil us.
