This weekend is one of those weekends (actually all of them are) that makes me not want to return to work on Monday. Friday night Meghann and I took the street bike to see Hancock in Oak Ridge. Not a good movie IMO. But it was good to spend time with Meghann alone. On Saturday I drove up to Morristown and test rode a used KTM 200EXC from a guy off Craigslist. The bike was in great shape and came with an extra set of brand new tires. I decided to buy it and try it out. Wow, this bike is scary fast. It is a purebred woods race bike. It fast and need to be ridden angry or it will get angrier and toss you. Which it did a few times on Saturday afternoon. I spent some time Saturday afternoon riding and exploring Windrock with Matt and Loo for potential XC bike trails.
Sunday I DHed for the first time since the last Snowshoe race. I had been pretty burnt out on racing and the time off has been great. I was pretty sketchy the first run, but I got real comfortable fast and felt great. After some DH runs I took the KTM out and did a lap on Trails 1, 2 and 24.
After biking, I met up with Meghann, Jasper, and Dad for an afternoon on the lake. We took the boat out and had a good time. Japser and mommy start swimming lessons at the Oak Ridge Civic Center today.
