At some point early in the month, I was thinking about how glad I would be to see October, because that would mean that I survived the end of September.
The week leading up the Addison Oaks Race was a blur of last minute activity, but in the end, everything came off PERFECTLY. The race was well attended (333 racers) and the weather was perfect. I couldn’t be happier about how the race turned out, and I we couldn’t have done it without the help of a WHOLE lot of volunteers. It would have been a disater without those people who stepped up, and were willing and able to do whatever it took to make the race a success.

We were out at Addison Oaks from 7AM till 5PM. About 10 minutes after the raffle was completed, and the final cleanup began, Marty and I got in our car and headed to Metro Airport to fly to Vegas for Interbike.
Interbike week was a combination of recovering from the prior week, going 10+ hours a day between the show and outdoor demo, and crashing in our room. We didn’t get a chance to attend the CX race, the Crit, or really do ANY Vegas type stuff. No partying, no gambling, no adult entertainment. It was a week of bikes and crashing on the couch.
But, the good news is that by the time we got home on Saturday, we were actually pretty recovered from the last couple of weeks. Got lots of cool swag, got to check out a lot of cool new bikes and cycling related stuff, and generally had a great week with perfect weather.
So, now it’s back to normal life… We, at least for 3 weeks, then we head off to AMSTERDAMN!
