What happens when the track gets rain? Here is some photos taken Sunday after this past week’s rain storms.

The rain from last weekend did some damage to the track.  We started working on getting back to being ridable and it quickly, unexpectedly be came a track changing rebuild.  The Double going into the first turn turned into a table top of Kraken proportions.  The table top coming out of the turn was shortened a few feet.  The step-up into the 2nd turn was changed a little.  The last straight now has a table coming out of the last turn.  This has added to the time it has taken to get the track back up and running, but should make the track better over all.

Time to work on the track

The rain from this past weekend took a big toll on the track.  I went out to the track after work yesterday to get started and Randal Parry (Bobcat’s dad) was there working already.  He had already brought out a water pump and got the standing water off the track.  He’ll be bringing out a Bobcat from his business “American All Rent” to assist with the fix-up.  I don’t think it’s been as bad as it was after this last rain in a while.  Oh well, a little more work and it’ll be rideable again.

Hopefully we can get the big work out-of-the-way and get the track open for Thursday and Saturday.

…And the Rain Sets in

Well, it rained yesterday, so far today and more planed for tomorrow.  So far it hasn’t been too bad, I hope it stays this way.  The track could use a good soaking, just not a downpour.

Josh White has that new Elite Profile hub built into a wheel and waiting for me to pick it up at the store.  If it’s too wet to race tonight I’ll make the trek up to Action Bikes tonight and pic it up.  I am interested in putting it on my bike and seeing how it works. 

I went to the Gold’s Gym by my house yesterday and did some light lifting to work on my shoulder.  Really light weight.  It seems to be helping and I am getting more range of motion out of it every day now.  It’s funny to struggle not because of the weight, but because my shoulder doesn’t want to do it.  I also worked on some pylos.  Monday I worked up to the big 48inch box, with only a slight miss hap.  Yesterday I just used the smaller 42inch box but did more.  I also did kettle bell swings.  I got to get my workout on,  Anthony and Stephen Robiano are starting to get really fast Hojo ain’t getting any slower.  I got to get back to the front of the pack at the track. 

My training “plan” is ever evolving.  I’m going to look more at riding my bike at the track and hitting the gym on days when I can’t get to the track.  Instead of going to the gym as my workout and missing riding time.
