PLanNinG....

This weekend I have been busy writing the sponsorship proposal for the ETSU Cycling Team. I had help from The boyz at MSG, mainly Eric. Thanks! He sent me some proposals that they have for the awesome MSG series that they promote every year, I used it as a base to work from. I now have it completed and ready to disperse. The road season for college is fast approaching and we finally have the first race date set in Georgia. I'm working with a restaurant here in town that's going to host a pancake breakfast to help raise funds for the team, I'm looking forward to that. We only have 3 collegiate road races scheduled in the SECCC but a few of us are going to hit a couple extra races at our own expense that are out of our conference.


I sit here watching SUPERCROSS on CBS while trying to write a short paper for class, It's not going so well with the distraction. We had a discussion on a previous blogpost about the shortcomings of James Stewart on comments at the end of the post. I was watching the past highlights of the previous races and yes...........more of Stewart crashing as usual. I'm really pleased that there is more competition in Supercross now, it makes it more interesting. When Obama was asked what he thought of his boy Stewart all they got was this look. Well enough Stewart bashing (for now) back to bike racing and the regularly scheduled programming.



Captain Dingo sent me a message this morning about attending ICYCLE. I didn't attend this last year due to funds and not enough unemployment flowing into my checking account. I honestly had forgotten all about this race with all the hype of the Tennessee State CX Championships right here in my backyard. Eric and Dwayne have secured the last race of the state series here at Winged Deer Park in Johnson City, it doesn't surprise me though, they always put on a world class caliber event at every MSG race. I'm leaning to going to Icycle though, mainly because my CX bike has no shifters on it. I robbed it to get the BMC up and running for the oncoming collegiate road season. I should be riding the Epic though, I was downstairs and it didn't look too happy with me since the arrival of the new steed in the stables. It's so hard trying to please all my bikes, my new BMX bike is bouncing off the walls like a chimpanzee smokin' crack. It wants to be taken out to the BMX track for a little action. If I'm going to the indoor National at Morristown I BETTER get some time on it. There's no riding for today and tomorrow (rain) but there will be some gym time later this evening and maybe a little spin thrown in for good measure.

yea CBS, after I saw it wasn't onb speed I started surfing to find it. It came on a 1pm though. Stewie has an injured hand now or something. DUNGEY rode well.

I like ICYCLE best but a 6hr drive for a 1hr race and I can jus play here at the CX........still undecided.
