    12 hour race mojo

    So my wife is in Disney with the boy and I got bored. Add cheap beer and this is what you get. Man, $9 cable TV sucks.

    Seriously, is it a really bad idea to do a 12 hour race on a 2.0 tire (rigid KM fork)? I am used to a 2.5, but the 2.0 is .6lbs lighter. Get beat all to hell or climb faster than a monkey on crack??

    I don't know, but you, me and OGG are all going to find out together.

    Nice mojo. Does it glow in the dark? Too bad its only a 12hr race or you could really be stylin'.

    I don't think it glows anymore

    I found it in the parking lot at Sand Hills in SC. It has been hanging on my wall since then looking for a home. My friend just called and told me that the 2.0 won't kill me so I am sticking with it.
    He will be coming off if the number obscures his view.

    That would suck. There's always duct tape for the quick fix though.

    My race mojo just went down into a creek last night with a huge thud.
    Took a nice little ride with my local krew last night, and didn't make it across a log ride over a creek. The worst part is that I helped construct the log ride to minimize erosion and keep the creek in good shape. Where is the karma in that, lol?! I have ridden across it at least a dozen times, but last night my friend and fellow 12 hour solo competitor, C-note, fell on it too! His knee is banged up and my right shoulder appears to be separated and my right thumb is useless; except for shooting excrutiating pain up into my brain. Can't hardly type this paragraph.
    Maybe a sling and some Celebrex will be my mojo-motto. Of course, this happens right as my dislocated right wrist is healing up...
    So look for the guy on a rigid SS, 2.0 tires (hahahahahaha), bum left shoulder and a right thumb that can barely be used to hitch a ride on the side of a freeway.

    Slow, stupid and stubborn. The OGG way.
    See you all tomorrow. And watch out- I really like your skelly man!!

    Well that really blows. Look on the bright side though: maybe now I won't be DFL.

    Hell no!!!!!! You better not battle me for that position!
    Maybe we can cruise some laps together and converse- take my mind off the pain of my separated shoulder and such... oh, and beer!
