Close Call

JUST got my bike back from San Francisco. That’s a whole different story for another time.

But look at what I got back in my box.


Apparently, unless this happened at the bike store, I came close to getting my first flat in a race at Alcatraz. That’s right, you heard me. I have never had a flat in a race, or any ride in my tri career, for that matter. I think my luck is running out…..

  1. Hey buddy, loving the blog. Like you I have never had a flat out on the road at all. I imagine when time runs out for me it will be a cold, dark night!

    • Thank man. Yeah, with all the luck I’ve had, I’m sure it will happen at the most in opportune time. You coming back again next year?

      • Will give the ballot a go but think I will plan to go long again next year and do it somewhere a little closer to home. I will be back to Escape again sometime though when I am fit enough to really enjoy the race.

      • I hear ya. It was a good mix of fun and pain this time at 3:05 for me. But faster and actually racing….that would be painful. Hope to see you there!
