chemistry

I just finished with my chemistry class and right now I think all of my brains have been liquified. I'm not sure how I will make it through another 2 hrs of math class. On saturday is the Cochise County Cycling Classic and I am planning on winning the 92 mile event. on the wed ride this morning I hit a huge rock because the idiot in front of me didn't point it out. and now I need to go home and true my wheels. I think it sucks that Tyler Hamilton was doping, he was the last person I would have suspected to do that shit. if he gets banned from the sport for 2 years like david millar, then his carrer as a cyclist will be pretty much over.

I have to go to class now for another 2hours!!! I hope I won't melt or somthing

whatever

Tests

the other day was my first Chem test and I managed to do incredably bad, a 66, which is really bad. on the bright side I got a 95 on my math test which is cool. today is my first spanish test and I think I will do pretty good. I am still taking some time off (till sat) and not riding for so long is making me sleep bad. I am also getting restless from not doing anything even though it has only been since sunday that I haven't riden. I did good at mt. grahm, 1:45 or there about (i'm not sure since the results aren't up yet). I took half an hour off my time last year, I still got second because Chad was there.

whatever

p.s. I'm still collecting donations for my new Cervelo, so far people have forgotten since I haven't got an money yet.

DMV

today I went to the dmv to get my license (finally) and we filled out all of the forms and waited in line to pay and all of that stuff. then I went to go take my road test, or my parking test as they should call it. the dude had me turn on my signals and tap the brakes, then I went over to where they do the 3 point turn test which as you might know if you drive is where you make a three point turn (look it up if you can't figure it out). so any ways, I wasn't able to make the turn with out going foward again or hitting the cone, and I wonder how many of YOU could do that tight of a turn in one SMOOTH motion without pulling foward again. there was probably about 1.5 feet of clearance on either side of the car, so it was about 9-10 feet wide. this make me really mad because it is NOT a road test it was a freaking PARKING LOT TEST which if I was driving somewhere else I would have gotten out of that spot with out trouble. When I saw the Man child at school he was making fun of me for failing the driving test, I then pointed out that he wasn't able to pass the written test and of course he didn't care about that, he then had to go to his bio class. I'm going back to the dmv tomorrow and I am going to get my license damit!!!!!

Whatever

P.S.
I want to get a Cervelo Bayonne with full DA and zipp 404 wheels, so I will start collecting donations now. I only need about 9000 more dollars.

the dangers of plumbing

yesterday I was helping my dad try to remove our old faucet so we could put the new shiny one in. so I was laying under the sink cranking on a bolt with all the strength I could muster in the cramped quarters, but the bolt wouldn't move. I went to go try it again but I accidentally dropped the wrench and it landed squarely on my forehead, which then proceeded to bleed. latter I managed to scrape my chin on somthing so along with the cut on my forehead I have a cut on my chin. the worst part is that the faucet didn't come out cause we couldn't get the bolt off. thats my pointless story for the day. I'm looking foward to being done with mt. grahm next sunday because then I will take some time off the bike before CCCC in october then some more time off the bike before Tour de Tucson in november.

State RR

yesterday was the state rr in flagstaff and i won the mens cat 4 race. just kidding about the winning part, but I nearly won. I attacked solo with one lap to go and had about 1 minute on the main feild but then I turned onto lake mary road which is straight and windy and I got caught about 3 miles before the finish and finished really bad. but mine was the only convincing attack of the whole race. there were others that never really got out of sight and were eaisily brought back. also none of the 4s could recconize a winning break when it slapped them in the face seeing as no one went with me, but if someone had then we would have made it to the line where I probably have beat them in a sprint for the line. my team mate crashed badly, or I should say, was crashed badly by some dude coming into his rear wheel hard and sending him flying. so that sucked because he probably won the 1-2s, but instead of a jersey, he got a screwed up forearm and a very painful hip.
now there is just one more race left in the season, mt. grahm. which I can't say I am looking foward to since it is 20 miles up hill and I don't like climbing very much, but I'll try to go under 2 hrs this year.

Post Kitt peak TT

this morning was the Kitt Peak TT. I had a pretty good ride although I don't think I broke an hour (just barely) but I was about 10 or 11 mins faster than last year. waking up at 4 am sucked alot expecialy since it only took us about 50 minutes to get there so we could have left 1/2 hr later and still got there in time. I am looking foward to some "off time" but I'll still have lots of school and other stuff to do.

whatever

later..........

Kitt Peak TT

tomorrow is the kitt peak tt on kitt peak (DUH!!). I will be leaving at 5am with the manchild and weaknees to go up there. getting up at 4:15 is going to suck but it will all be worth it if I beat the manchilds record for the 17-18 jrs of 58min and change. my spanish class is getting somewhat eaiser since I can kind of understand what my teacher is saying. so I was going to write about how the manchild is a pansey for being cold when we were coming back from the shootout this morning and it was like 80F out, but I forgot what I was going to say. I am going to go to bed now so I can set a new record tomorrow.

G'night
