Hopefully I didn’t worry the two readers of this blog but I’m still alive, it’s been a while since I updated this thing. Not much is new, just been riding and going back and forth from Junction and Denver to visit. Not going to school has been a little weird but can’t say I miss it. It’s really relaxing not having to worry about homework, test or papers at the end of the day. Just having to focus on riding and recovering is really nice. After the race season was over we took two weeks of the bike completely which was really nice and needed Though since we’re on our off season we haven’t had any structured riding yet just having fun for now. One week when we were not riding we followed the USA Pro Cycling Challenge and went to three stages. We started it off with the Prolouge in the Springs then went up to Vail for the TT and ended it with the last stage in Denver. This race was insane; the amount of people that were out watching this race was really cool to see. Team Exergy also raced in this race which was a really big deal. Being able to race against the world’s best was truly something special. They also held their own by getting a lot of TV time by controlling the front and ending it off with Freddie getting third on the last stage in Denver./Kenny Withrow where he participated in the Ironman World Championships 70.3 as well as attended Interbike and Cross Vegas. The Ironman was pretty cool to watch just to see how fast these guys actually are. Kenny also killed it by placing 24th in his age group. He actually beat his result from last year by over 50 positions which was a huge improvement and accomplishment. Nice work Kenny.
