Thursday Night Ride

I see this all the time,riders going the wrong way.
Here's the intersection where I screwed up.

The clouds looked nasty all day.

I got my flat on this road.

Well what can I say, I got lost and a flat tire. Both my fault! I came up on an arrow that was half covered in sand and should have stopped to check it closer. I thought it pointed straight, but it pointed right. Fifteen miles later and I was back on course. A couple of miles more and I ran over something with my rear wheel and put two holes in my tire. Ugh! It didn't take too long and I was on my way again. I made it back to the start right before the drizzle started.

Nitro Time!

This weeks race is in Bristol Tennessee. Thunder Valley is the name of the track, it's built between two mountains. The sound from the cars echo two or three times as they go down the track. I've been there twice, it's awesome. Check it out on ESPN2 this weekend.
