The races at Konawa were challenging last weekend. The weather was cold, miserable, and icy. After getting second in the vintage race and then thirteenth in the quad race, the cold front kept pushing through. The remaining bike races were canceled when the weather reached 9 degrees, a negative wind chill, and the snow was replaced by thunder, lightning, and freezing rain. The cancelled races will hopefully be rescheduled for next weekend.

Just received boxes of goodies for all of the different bikes. Between my three bikes and one quad, and my sons two bikes and one quad...I have a lot of maintenance to do on the bikes in the next two weeks. Our season starts on March 1, 2014 with OCCRA at Konawa, OK. Our off season strength and conditioning has gone not great, but OK. My strength training has gone fine, but conditioning is down a little bit due to a toe injury sustained by putting in too many miles running. My leg strength and upper body strength is fine though, and should be enough to man handle the bike late in the races. Gotta sign off and head to the gym!
