only the three of us showed for the beatdown tonight: brian, shawner, and myself. oh, we made the best of it anyway. no sense in wasting a good beatdown.
great weather, great ride. brian (schvonzie for all of those in the know) was having a killer night, enough to pummel me on 3 of the 6 major climbs. i was working it, too. i had a great night. i accused him of taking epo, but he brushed it off and mumbled something about an italian doctor and koala bear hormones. i left it at that and congratulated him on getting his form back. shawner had a tough night, to be expected after his 160 mile monday. that said, he still laid it down for us numerous times.
