Wisconsin can be a wacked place.
It is March 29, and we woke up today to 6 inches of snow on the ground. March 29! They held a golf tournament here 2 weeks ago, for crying out loud. It is bad enough that it snows like this at stupid times, but to have it be that way on the morning of what was supposed to be the first race of the year for me, really sucks.
I know that I am supposed to stop talking about the weather. After all, grousing about it doesn’t do anything. In fact, it doesn’t even make me feel any better. I am having a hard time just “dealing with it”. Someone is out to get me, or at least that is the way that I feel some times. That feeling is what makes me want to “Damn the weather gods!”
I guess I actually have it pretty good. I have bikes, I have a riding area. I am pretty fit, and I am ready to go. Maybe this weekends race was just not to be. Sure wanted to kick my bike over on a starting line though.
Oh well. On to some other rants.
Can someone tell me what the hell is up with James Stewart? He is by far the fastest man on the planet. I don’t think that even Ricky Carmichal could keep up with him on his best days. Yet, Chad Reed has a good chance of beating him for the overall in the AMA SX series. Chad is fast, and a classy rider. But, come on, this is James Stewart we are talking about. Chad Reed?
But, I guess the races have been fun to watch.
What about that GNCC series, eh? We have had so many years with a guest superstar, that we had all forgotten what GNCC racing is really like. The races are tough, and there really is not guarantee from one race to the next. There really are only a couple of people that can dominate the racing the way that Juha and David Knight did, and they are not here this year. Jeez it has been exciting. 3 winners in 3 races. I am still waiting for Paul Whibley to solidify things at the top, but for now it is damn exciting. I fear that Paul will put it together sometime soon, and we will go back to runaway wins by one rider again. I am disappointed that my man Nathan Kanney has not put it together yet. It is a long season, and we will see what happens next.
Next weekend is the opening weekend of our biggest riding area. I suspect that we will be fighting our way through the snow. But, I will not be missing that for anything. Dyracuse riding area.
Our for now.
