Martin Angelov shared his funky concept for a new urban way of transportation dubbed “Kolelinia” with us . Kolelinia proposes that we ride our bicycles on a steel wire as a new type of bicycle lane. The idea was awarded first for the international “Line of Site” competition.
More about Kolelinia after the break.

Started GPS'n the courses for the new website this morning. Met up with Mr. Groovy for a bit, always good conversations with Rody. First up...map out the prologue course, then the cross course, then went out and mapped the "mellow yellow" course with all the bypasses. Ground was frozen and riding was great. Finally went out and mapped the "red is rad" course with all the so called advanced obstacles. By that time the course was beginning to thaw in spots...made for tougher riding via soft trails on sore legs from hard training week but gave me a good chance to put the belt drive through its paces...worked flawless and cut right though the mud...no chain suck...not much more to say, will be nice to try out in a race some time next year.

Dear Kevin Daum,
Thank you from the Leadville Trail 100! sucka!
Entry is in for 2010. Motivation is sub 8:30 time split & beat my personal best of 8:48 set in 2005. (Lance beat it by 2 flipp'n hours) Bring it on...
Here's the game plan as I have unfiinished business. I could not locate prior results on the new LT100 website so this is all I could gather from my notes. This is my motivation.
