I've been meaning to throw down a blog post for a good while now, but life has been getting in the way. Here we are though, and I have many things on which to report. I will go in chronological order in which the events happened. First of all we went to the Bloomington Motor Speedway last Friday night... it was awesome. I was a bit scared that the euro mullet would not be welcome with all the Ameri-mullet's. We avoided confrontation though. Here's a little glimpse at what we were enjoying.

So yeah, it was intense. We were in the front few rows and dirt from the the track was hitting us. To me that means we were close enough for one of those cars to come cart-wheeling through the fence and smash all of us, the others didn't think so. The obviously haven't seen as many "world's most dangerous..." shows as I have.

After the race track we went to some bike races. The race in Warsaw was put on by out team sponsor, so we kind of needed to do something. Well some Bissell dudes showed up and were trying to steal our chedda. Mike was in a break that lapped the field... WITH 4 BISSEL DUDES, and Greg Christian. Not good odds, but with some help from the "non field lapping, field sprint winning" Aaron Hubbell, things turned out pretty well. We appreciate it bro! Mike took home the V and we proceeded to enjoy the rest of the evening. A lot.

Rum Village Crit the next day. Embarrassing. Bissell got their revenge. I don't want to talk about it.

Now for the best part about the last week of my life...

This showed up on my doorstep a few days ago

This is what was in that box

I knew I was getting some wheels, but that's a lot of stuff! I'm still waiting on another set that will come mid-sept. But I think this will hold me over until then.

Tomorrow I'll be checkin' out the IU football season opener from a box seat and taking it easy. I may venture out on the cross bike for some skills practice, but nothing too serious, I'm going to enjoy my first weekend at home in a couple months.
