Roots, Rock, & Roulette.

So, it's been nearly a month since the last update.  Here's a two-for.  On Monday, Barry, Mitch and I hit up Pisgah for some seriously aggro riding.  I don't think I've been so close to death on such frequent occasions since my last Dixie crit.  Kidding.  After the 13 mile climb to Pinnacle, we bombed down sections of boulders, roots, slim-rhododendron-lined singletrack and some wicked switchbacks.  Good times.  Here are a few more shots.

Once back to Winston, it was rush-rush to get some work stuff done before hopping a plane to the annual American Academy of Physician Assistants national conference. This year, the venue is Sin City.  So far, the only trouble I've gotten into is a frosty beverage by the pool at the Hilton.

I'll get back to town on Saturday just in time for dinner.  Here's to hoping the jet stream provides a helpful tailwind back to NC. 

Next ride is probably the MNRR, put on weekly by the City Loop Mafia, but as for racing...nothing on the books at the moment.  Hmmm...
