Today was the last race of the 2007 Wisconsin Cup – an uphill/downhill crit in Brookfield that kicked my butt. I haven’t done much training since the state TT (plenty of fun rides with Kelley and my coworkers, though), and my top-end fitness really has taken a hit. It’s hard to believe another racing season has ended, but there’s still ‘cross to look forward to, provided I can build back some semblance of form.

Now’s a fitting time to congratulate my teammates on what has been our best year to date. So many of us reached a new level on the bike, and the quality of our friendships has continued to grow commensurately. I’m very blessed to be a member of CZ Velo.
