So I've been trying to upload pictures to Matt's racing blog and it won't take them and I'm being lazy about coding them myself).
However, Blogger uploads them to my blog. Hrmuph.
Anyway. Aren't they cute? That's Matt's team. From left to right: Tim, Marty, Bryan, Jim and Matt (who must dress alike, even if they're not in team gear), Chris and Jason.
If you look closely at Bryan, you'll notice the bandages (and I'll apologize that he has a shirt on, believe me I am truely sorry). There was some carnage over the weekend. Both Matt and Bryan had tough crashes (seperate). Bryan was in a break and the guy behind him was riding head down and hard and literally just ran right into him. Ran over him and his bike (both wheels broken: that's $1000 in wheels, guys). Matt was in the front for the finishing sprint when the rider in front of him touched wheels with an other rider and went down. Matt had nowhere to go. Luckily, he didn't break any teeth and his cut lip didn't require stitches (however, his lip looks pretty bad).
On top of that, Matt missed his time for the Time Trial so lost about 45 seconds before he even started. Uh. Not a good karma weekend for him. However the weather was beautiful and they had a good time (they're a fun group of guys). Here's some more pictures from Sunday:
That's pretty much the end of the racing season. There's one more crit Matt will probably do, but now he'll concentrate on getting the sponsership thing done and start training for next season (he needs to build his sprinting strength and work more on the time trial).
Well, this is a knitting blog, no? Not much to report on that front. I'm still finishing up the second sock for the Slip Stitch Sock in the Claudia Handpaints (lovely lovely yarn), but the second heel is being fiddly (I keep dropping stitches). I could get it done today, but I'm sort of in a sewing groove right now and I might try to finish the dress I cut out on Saturday (thanks to Kate and Lauren for their help in helping me pick out some patterns).
So I'll try to finish up the socks today so I can get back to my other knitting (Silver Creek Gansey is so close to finishing) but we'll see how the sewing goes.
