The first race of the 09 season is always a fun one. It's a wild card. Legs are pasty white, most people are packing a few extra lbs. It seems more like a big group ride and a chance to catch up with people you haven't seen all winter. But that group ride feeling all goes out the window when the gun goes off.

It was a great weekend and fun to have the family come down to escape the cold and offer their support. Watching the kids and my wife cheering always takes the pain away even if it's only for a few seconds.
