North Bound

Jeff and I headed to PHX to visit Howie, Walker and Yuri. Red Mtn Epic was on the menu with Yuri leading the charge. Great ride left me wondering why I haven't ventured North sooner?

Yuri's perspective
Harry's take
And Walker too

The wildflowers were in full bloom signaling the arrival of Spring. Allergies will soon follow...
The knee is a little sore and some research on my part has me thinking I hurt the Patella Tendon. It's rather fibrous and contains a layer of fat. Hopefully my diagnosis is correct and the 1-2cm of initial displacement occured in the fat layer. Heck, I rode out at least 5 miles and was able to drink some cervesas afterwards so it can't be all that bad.

Libby's in Amsterdam visiting her friends for another week. Don't know which hurts more: missing her or wishing I was there with her.... Yeah, wish I was there too.
