Well, it’s however many days in, I dunno, I’m too lazy to go back and look.
team buKit is gelling nicely.
Official Team Mechanic, Nature will be down for a visit in the next week or so. We are planning on getting as many ‘training rides’ in as possible in the span of 3-4 days. Don’t forget he’s also the Team Microbrew Consultant as well. Thanks to Team Director Lyn for agreeing to watch the kiddies a bunch during that time. See, it’s all about teamwork.
Team Travel Coordinator Kjungleboy will be in town for a day as well. He’s officially here to go see some NASCAR race, but I’m sure we’ll use some of the time to work on the music for the upcoming documentary, “They Were Behind from the Start: The team buKit Story”. Look for it on IFC. You’ll remember, he’s the composer of ‘buKit’s theme’, so the music should be something else.
The weather here has finally turned outstanding and I have been able to get out for many training rides – although – mountain bike rides instead of road. Whoops. I figure ANY time on the bike is better than no time at all, right?
On a related note, on the last ride it would appear that I tangled with some Poison Oak/Ivy/Sumac and came up short. I have a patch in a stripe right across my lower back – of course, right where your shorts/pants sit. Should proove maddening. I also have a spot on my elbow. Rest assured though, that I have consulted with the team engineers and after a few hours in the wind tunnel, they have assured me that should the outbreak not be fully healed by TOH ride time, the lesions will cause no ill effect on my aerodynamics or coefficient of drag – er, something.
Well, that’s what they’re paid the big bucks for.
