race bike

no ride tonight. thunderstorms hit hard. i guess it was a good thing as i really really need to get the spot ready for sunday.
i'm being more responsible than usual and not saving it for saturday night. i went to start it and realized i needed a few parts i don't have here (surprise) and those parts that are needed are stopping me from finishing with what i do have. not to mention i don't feel like dealing with oil at the moment. annoyed at myself for not really thinking it through before today. some of it though is just because i want it a certain way, not that i need it. the bike could've been raced as is. i'm just not used to a boingy fork and i would appreciate the lockout. i take that back a little, the cables and housing are well overdue for a change. the rear hesitates... i seriously think it still has the cables and housing it was initially built with. no wait, 2nd, the cable was stainless.
i really would like to get out to geneva on saturday to pre-ride. that would be awesome. i need to hire a traveling babysitter. like a nanny for races. that would be cool. go up on saturday with this nanny person and pre-ride, hange out in the hotel and race the next day. and then i'd have to hire a dog sitter for the weekends we are away. i think i need a higher paying job.

You and John should switch off on the kid duty so you can both race.* It's all about the give and take, right?


* Please note that my wife made me say that.

We are going up for the day on Sat. and will take turns while one pre-rides and the other watches Chris.

Although, I like the nanny idea.
