My husband is hot!

27th February 2007

Yesterday was his first race of the year and he was hot on the bike. Of course, I’m partial, and I think he looked hot in his new Birmingham Velo team jersey and shorts. You don’t have to agree or disagree with that part, but he went off the front of the pack early on with a pro rider from Georgia and the two of them duked it out to the end, beating the main group by 5 minutes. He was flying! He ended up in second, and I’m sure he’ll chime in with the details, but he could have been first. Either way, he raced well, and it’s a great confidence boost to start his season. (He’s the third rider in this picture – this was on one of the early laps.)

Josiah and I were able to go watch the race, for which I’m really glad. I was pretty bummed on Saturday evening, thinking that I’d better stay home from church with Josiah since he’d had a fever off and on. But when he woke up without a fever, Brian convinced me that we should come watch his race. I love cheering him on, so it wasn’t a hard sell! Analise spent a fun day with Brian’s parents, so Josiah and I had a nice time playing at the playground and watching Brian’s 5 laps of the race.

Watch out, anyone on a bike… Brian’s hot this year!

    lol, it was a great race. I don’t know about looking “hot”, but I definitely felt great in the race. The three of us in the breakaway averaged over 25mph for 50 miles! The pro rider from Georgia would pull on the back side of the course where we had a strong tailwind and we would hit close to 40mph. Then into the headwind through the start/finish we were still able to keep it close to 20mph.

    I cant even average 25 mph in my car. Nice Job again. Maybe one of these days we can check out another race. We need to figure out the summer too.
