I drove north from Topeka to go up near Chicago and get some new wheels/tires for my van. I had planned on doing a 100km gravel road race here, but Friday I came down with some mild form of stomach crud. I think it was something I ate, but whatever the reason, along with so much rain, I don’t have the energy to do it. I needed to put some bigger tires on my wheels and just feel way under prepared for the whole ordeal.
KU is playing tonight to make it into the final four in the NCAA basketball. They are playing North Carolina. It is strange the relationship that KU and North Carolina basketball share. They almost seem inbred from square one. Their coaching back and forth historically, up until present day. And how they’ve had to play each other recently in the tournament to get to the finals. It’s interesting.
The rain has been following me from Kansas up North. It is perfect in Topeka right now after raining for the last week. Spring I guess. It seems Spring is early throughout the country. That is great for bike riding people, but kind of makes the trees and flowers be a little mixed up.
If you’re up to watching some bike racing from Belgium, click here to get the links to Gent-Wevelgem this morning. Should be a good race to watch, as most of the Belgian races are in the Spring.
