SMW Regional Board

This past weekend I was selected to be on the South Midwest Regional Board of Directors for USAT. I'm one of 12 board members. I'm pretty excited to help out with the region. Hopefully, I have some good ideas that can be implemented and I won't get swallowed by the politics.

Today I was appointed the Chairperson for Championships in our region. That means I'll be coordinating the selection of the Regional Championship race and National Championship qualifying race for 2008. There are some cool new changes coming down the pipe from USAT with regard to National Championships. Should be fun.

New ride!

It's finally here. My Kuota Kalibur frame/fork arrived last week just in time for the snow, ice, freezing rain, and freezing temperatures. I haven't been able to ride it outside yet, just the trainer. So I can still stay I've never ridden a carbon bike. Maybe tomorrow.

Anyway, it's cool. I also added a Visiontech base bar and Vision Tech brake levers. The levers are tiny, but very aero, so they were the obvious choice. I'm going to try and run the base bar without bar tape. We'll see how that goes.

Super thanks to Kuota and Steve at Bicycle Store Too in OKC for helping me out.
