All right, recovery week is over. Suck it up buttercup, time to start putting in the miles out on the road. Hopefully my indoor training time will be kept to a minimum.

The snow is melting!!! It's above the freezing mark but its pouring rain. HMMM.

This weekend while sitting back and enjoying a beer I thought about where I was last year at this time. I was soaking wet covered in mud after the Uxbridge Icebreaker. 50 km of mud.

The organizers changed the date on this race for environmental reasons. Last year there was so much mud it was on the edge of doing damage to the trail systems. They figured by bumping the course to the middle of April the snow would be gone and the grown fairly dried up. Not this year boys!!! It is looking like it could be worst than last year.

This is a race designed for cross bikes because of the long sections on dirt roads. It will be interesting to see some prerace trail reports over the next two weeks. The cross bike may hang on the wall this time, if the snow level is anywhere close to what we have here we will defiantly be riding the glaciers this year and some nice fat tires might be the trick.

On other notes, the second XC Carbon will be here soon.

I'm also trying to figure out what road bike to be playing with this year.

RC8 is sweet

But I'm thinking the RC7. Love the subtle paint scheme

Less than 2 weeks and the 2008 race season starts. Wow maybe winter wasn't as long as I thought it was.
