I must say I am enjoying being back home in Lawrence. Cool little town, good restaurants and the farmers markets started again for the season on the weekend. Training has been going well and I am looking forward to racing in Texas in two weeks. The rush is on now to have me on the new Kestrel 4000 this week - the frame is due (hopefully) to ship out from Kestrel today and all my sponsors have been great in getting the required build parts shipped out and ready to go. The bike shop (Sunflower Outdoor and Bike in Lawrence, KS) has the torque wrenches at the ready and my half glued race wheels are waiting their final prep. So hopefully by Wednesday afternoon the Kestrel 4000 will be set free back into the wild with me onboard. Will get some pictures up as soon as it is ready to go!
