TNR Report

We rode some trail. It was awesome. Especially the part from the Forks to Churchill Dr.





On the way back we stumbled upon a new paved trail that runs alongside the the new rapid transit corridor from Jubilee to Confusion Corner. That is a promising development. We also noted it would make a nice TNTT course some day. Probably in winter.

At the klubhaus, Tom K gave us a run-down on the last 4 months of his life. The long and short of it is that the Saudis think he's old. Very old. Or at any rate, too old for them. We told him that we figured the Saudis were correct. But we assured him that, unlike the Saudis, we are okay with being old. The Hipster told us some stories of his recent trip to San Francisco and even showed us photos of the yerba mate beer he tried when he was there. We talked about the race this weekend at Camp Ass. and how awesome it's going to be. It's RRR's race. Which means it's our race too. So anyone who is able should plan to help set up the course on Saturday. Maybe Brad and/or KK would be so kind as to drop a comment with the particulars. The Giant also shared some ideas about a potential Tuesday Night CX race at his farm. It sounds like there is lots of potential and we thought we should probably explore it further. Sadly, it will not feature a barn ride through, as there is no barn on the premises. But there is a large machine shed. There was also talk of a possible combine run-up. Given Tom K's presence, this led us to wonder aloud about how cool it would be to do a Hercules ride-through some day. Tom assured us this was something he would have no problem arranging. That was nice to hear, almost as nice as it was to hear about the beer drop he was planning to arrange for us on Spring Ride Friday a few years back. We finished off the evening by inquiring into the status of the wool jersey 3.0. There was little to report. We confirmed that the new wool jersey project will be followed by the construction of the sweetest skinsuit in the world. And then the Giant dropped the bombshell of the night, announcing that he was in the early stages of researching a project the outcome of which would find us sloshing around the mud in the sweetest rubber boots in the world.
