Cyclist Seeking Volunteer Mechanic
Thursday, May 8, 2008 - Race Reports
One accomplished collegiate cyclist seeking an experienced mechanic to do bike work at large bike races. Must know bikes and enjoy long drives across the country. Will not compensate with money. No Perks. Contact me if interested.

Wow, what a day. Busy, busy, busy. First, washed my road bike. Then checked out the TTT course in a 30 mph cross wind. After finding lunch we spent the afternoon working on bikes; washing, tuning, admiring. They were checking measurements on all TT bikes and evidently my bikes weighs 2 pounds less with a disk and tri-spoke. Right....

Then we rushed to dinner to get back for a talk about aero dynamics. I don't even know if it happened, I heard something about the room being double booked. Dinner was entertaining. Max Jenkins tagged along and I learned a bunch of cycling trivia disguised with personal experiences.

Well it was nice to do something not directly related to one of my bikes. The Team Time Trial is tomorrow and the women race at 8:18 and we exit the start house at 9:20, that's MST. Should be fun. I think the extreme wind today was due to a passing thunderstorm. I hope tomorrow will be much better.

P.S. There's a couple making out in the Jacuzzi right now (What? I was looking for a bathroom).

I pretty much fit the job description except for the "experienced mechanic" part. And as your personal blog editor, please make the following changes:

ways = weighs
trivial = trivia
bathroom) = bathroom.)

Best of luck in the road race tomorrow! Make 'em hurt.

When he says "checked out the TTT course" he means "got upset when it started to sprinkle so I got in the car and watched Tyler ride"... pretty much.
