ouachita

looks like i got in to the ouachita challenge this year which will be my first non-snow related race of 2009. i'll be headed back to dubuque for lance's triple d race again in early january. hopefully gonna have scotty and spinner along for that one. plans for '09 are coming together and i'm pretty excited about travelling to some bigger races this year. anything to help stay motivated is nice when its 3 degrees outside with some ridiculous wind chill.

It closed out at 8:30 this morning to I got the message a little late. Oh well can't help it now. Hopefully you have a good race down there. I am looking into doing the Triple D. Don't know yet. Well see.

What gearing are you using for Triple D????

shockstar said...

34x15 or 16 last year but probably 32x14 this year. its a cool race and a cool venue...you should definitely consider it.

Spinner said...

I am in for the Triple D. I am planning to wear and Under Armour thong with fishnet stockings and leading you for the entire race. should keep you motivated.

DO IT Trevor! We have to have better weather this year than last year.

talked to trevor...he's in. spinner's in. sov is coming. so if we count scott and trevor as still being decorahians that's a pretty good crew. if jesse would pull that thong up a little higher and ride the mariachi then the four of us would already be more single speeds than we saw all last year.

Crap-so it's going to be a dude fest in our hotel room eh?

What time did you register? In the middle of the night? I heard that's a tough one to get into!

Scott said...

what the hell else would spinner ride? i think you might want to wait and see how well i ride before you go and have me tarnish the good name of decorah. not sure how strong i still am.

elly...ouachita can be tough to get into which led to me stumbling away from the employee christmas party to find internet and get registered at midnight when it opened.
scott...deke has a pugsley that i thought jesse might ride but i guess sov gets it. now go find some gravel.

I'll be rockin' and sloshin' on the Mariachi unless I get an experimental steed. I also noticed Fuhrmann started blogging again and mentions something about the triple D. I can't really understand him, but I think there is kinda some sort of absolute chance that he is with out a doubt considering the possibility of maybe looking into definitely riding as well.
