Just kidding. Can't be done. If you read my blog at all you know how enamoured I am with my Ski Utah team. But thank you Eric and co. for helping me with my flat. With no levers I would never have gotten my tire off and without Eric pulling the staple out with his teeth I'd still be at RMR. Eric, your wife is a lucky woman!
So tonight was back on the oval. For some unknown reason I got popped off early. I slowed up and as I got lapped got right back on. I felt great. I was able to hang with the surges and I even thought about moving up and possibly attacking (not likely to actually happen but maybe one day.) Then about 25 minutes in there was another surge and I just seemed to have no power. I figured the race was almost over so I pulled of and went to chat with Brent and Stan. After the race I went to leave and as I stood up on my pedals my back tire skidded. I realized then that it was completely flat. Grrr! My skidding and the staple seems to have done some damage to my tire and it only has about 200 miles on it! I made it home (see above paragraph) and now I'm looking forward to a nice flat TT on Saturday. 26 miles of riding alone- it will be a test for me!
