Another good weekend. Finishing 3rd was unheard of on this course. I don't think I've the broke top 7 in the 4 years I've been here. There's the complications with my back. But there's the attention to form because of it. Then there's the dramatic weight loss, without losing power. The muscle head picture is when I weighed 183 lbs. I was a full time bike messenger when I started racing at 26. A lean 178 lbs and after a few seasons racing a 173 lbs. Five years later when I moved here in 2004 I shrank to 165-168. Last summer I started seeing upper 150's. I got on the scale today at a 149 lbs ( hydrated ).
