OKC Velo Time Trial Series (2 of 3)-April 24, 2010

Weeellllll...this was a first! The official results from the OKC Velo TT, held on Saturday, were just posted today (Tuesday, April 27)! I guess someone went before they should have and it caused everyone's time be off! So, it has been under official review since Saturday! My final time was 29.25!!! I am really happy because I shave 2 minutes and 32 seconds off my first TT...same place, same distance!!!! I am very proud of myself but know I can do even better! I will just keep training and get faster and faster! Watch out! I'm going to be in the low 20's for the same TT in no time! I may need a little more time but next year...watch out here come the teens!!! I still have one more in the series so I will be focused on just shaving off more time! RACING ROCKS!!!

HAPPY EARTH DAY! Ride a bike and save the environment!

I got my new Vittoria tires on my wheels and I can feel the difference. I think they make the ride smoother. Tonight I will go train on the hills with my coach...I dig riding with him! I'm trying to build strength in my legs so I will keep improving my power.

I can't wait I have my next TT this weekend! I love going fast...it feels gooooood!

I crack myself up!

Bella Mira Criterium-April 18, 2010

It was fun racing today with my teammate Big Luke. I felt bad for him because he didn't feel good today. I think he might have a stomach bug. Anyway, he still rode with me!  He is racing age 18 and I think he is really cool. He's nice too! Our coach, Rob Green, was there today and he raced in the Men's 1-2-3. He also felt bad. I hope I don't get it! This was the first time I got to race with anyone on my team and it rocked. He really helped me on the race today. The weather was very rainy and cold. The course started at the top of a hill and had an uphill finish. There was a downhill with a sweeping left hand turn then up another hill, take a left and keep climbing. Next, was the downhill section with another left and then climb again! It was lots of fun and I did good. Big Luke and I crossed the finish line after 8 laps and I got the win by a tire length. Do you think Big Luke let me win? He's a pretty nice guy but anyway I was still stoked with my win! I won a couple of gift certificates so, I took my parents to eat after the race. Tomorrow I will go shopping at Schlegel Bicycles with my other gift certificate! I also got my new Vittoria tires so I guess I'll get those on my bike tomorrow! Lucky me!

Lincoln Road Race-April 11, 2010

Well, I could hardly sleep last night because I was so excited for my first road race! It was in Arkansas and had some awesome curvy roads, steep uphills and downhills, dogs barking at us and lots of cows mooing. I had some real technical problems today and had to stop twice to try and get my bike repaired. My brakes were rubbing on my front and back tires the entire race but I never quit! I need to thank the Tulsa Tough riders who stopped to help me!! They rock! I think I need to have a chat with my mechanic (if I had one...LOL)! Anyway, I placed 2nd and loved the hills! I am ready for another road race it was so much fun! I actually got a trophy this time and not a stuffed cow! It was the best!

TW Thursday Night Time Trial-April 8, 2010

Ok, I was very stoked to be riding in this TT because my coach, Rob Green, loaned me his TT helmet! It was awesome. I slept with it Wednesday night to take good care of it! Well, my grandparents, uncle and mom were there to cheer me on! I came in 1st place and thought my time was really good! My times and avg mph were as follows: 5 K, finished in 10:53with an avg mph of 17.09!!!! I will ride another TT this month I am really going to work on increasing my average MPH! It was totally fun but too short...I wanted to keep riding! Oh well, road race coming up!!!
