Getting owned

I got destroyed this sunday in my first ever attempt to race geared cross. I also logged my first ever DNF.....at anything.
I just did not want to be on my bike. It was not one of my finer moments. I also managed to get owned in the SS class. was a fun course though. the wind was brutal though. Gonna go to Boss cross this weekend, though I will not be racing. I am gonna volunteer and cheer, but I need to start saving money and throwing money at these races is a losing proposition in my mind. Especially when I have to drive from Manhattan.
Enough complaining

On the upside I got my tomicog yesterday and managed not to die riding to work this morning. I am gonna try to sneak away and ride the river trail tomorrow afternoon. Considering my lack of fixed gear prowess it should be amusing, at least to the crusty hobos that hang out on the river trails. I am also gonna try to replace a bearing on a TIME ATAC pedal that has a plastic on plastic squeak when turned...... very weird. If anyone has ever replaced a bearing on a Time pedal I am all ears to any tips or suggestions.
Big Al is also home from the Northern Hinterlands of MN, so its time to straighten up or else......
