Thank goodness SAxt told me about this. After years of Rudy Project sponsorship, I've got a lot of cracked lenses.
It'll cost a little, but since I haven't paid for a pair of sunglasses in about 6 years, I don't really mind.

I get hot foot when I ride. It's just one of those things that happens to me when I put pressure on the pedals- which is one reason why I try and be as smooth as possible on the bike. My right toe yesterday felt as though I had a lighter under it the whole way up Tunitas Creek, after climbing Old, Haskins and rolling across Inland Hills. Annoying, but I finally have come to terms with my old foot beds, custom made for me at Killington Ski Shop about 6 years ago, are long past their time. When I pulled them out of my shoes yesterday afternoon I saw that I'd rubbed a hole where my right toe sits. Not good.
Now, I've tried other things, had my feet molded, dropped dollars on other 'custom' foot beds, but nothing felt like what was made for me so very long ago. One set of home heatable insoles that I'd used, made by SOLE, was very nice, but they took up a lot of room in my DMT shoes. Normally this is OK, as I have very low volume feet, but it was too much to bear and the tops of my feet were getting dug into by the velcro straps and were eventually going numb after about 2 hrs. Not good for the long races. So I've been doing research and see that SOLE now makes a low volume 'sport' insole. Maybe this new set will do the trick.

This is a great post from my buddy, Ari, up in Bremerton explaining the meaning of 'hubris'.
You've probably read the Velo News article/interview with Michael Ball, the CEO of Rock and Republic jeans, now director at Rock Racing. It's hysterical.
For the record: when one of your riders' A samples tests positive, but then the B sample needs to be tossed due to irregular handling; and that rider is/was coached by someone that gave a Grand Jury deposition at the Landis trial, I wouldn't go complaining that there is a witch hunt for one of your riders, I might just try real hard to keep my mouth shut.
To say that their skin is different from the majority of riders out there and that's the reason why they're being targeted- well, that's just stupid.
What a knucklehead. I pity all the riders on that team now- it's going to be along season for them.

- Does this dress make my armpits look fat?
- Do you think I could rest my drink on these?
- God, I hope I don't pop a seam in my pneumatics!
- No, really, I am a size zero- I swear!
- You have any extra foundation, Scary? I think I see a vein.
- Oi! If I hold my breath my nipples get hard. Cooooool!

Someone call the I.O.C.- quick!!
Disclaimer: I've raced a total of 3 cyclocross races in my life, got lapped every race and felt like I was going to hurl cookies the whole time. I've had a whole lot more fun being a mechanic, washing/fixing bikes and drinking beer in the pits while heckling my rider- you should try it, especially if you suck, which you do if you're lapped. Face it- you're a better road racer. No biggie.

I finished this the other day. Might make it bigger if someone orders one. It's only about 12 x 14 inches. A small study. Was going to varnish it, etc, then I read the labels on some varnishes at the art store. Holy shit are they toxic!
Feck that. Only when someone pays will I put my health on the line- either that or I happen to be in Vegas with Marco, then it's a given that my health will be in danger.
