Ramblings by Evelyn Dong: Rye Whiskey, Powermeters, and Puppies

When Shannon first offered me an opportunity to blog on Mountain Bike Race News, he gave me absolutely free reign - "You can say anything you like any way you like so feel free to load it up with your opinions or feelings or whatever you feel like writing about.Ē The only suggestion he made was not to give blow-by-blow race reports. I completely agree with him - who wants to read about every corner, hill, leg-burning climb, gel eaten, missed feed, and excuse as to why one missed the top step of the podium? OK, maybe Iíll throw one in every once in a while, but for the most part, races are much more exciting in oneís head than retold to others.

Going back to the content of this blog...could I use it as a soapbox to project rants against roadies, enduro racers, and trail e-bikes? gripe about training? use it as a shameless plug for my sponsors? an instagram compilation of all my artfully plated meals? cute puppy pictures???

Well, Iíll hold off on all of the above for now. Although I could go off on a few rantsÖ Instead, Iíll fill you in on what exciting details have gone on in my life during the past few weeks.

I got a power meter! Yup, Iíve moved into the ranks of cycling nerd-dom, and itís been interesting. Although, I frequently shut it off because having numbers flashing at me for the whole ride is disconcerting and depressing. Mostly, my coach, Tyler, appreciates it because I give about as much verbal feedback as a horse. The one disappointment Iíve encountered since Iíve started using it is that I donít go as fast downhill as I imagined. I can no longer begin stories with, "I was going, like, 60 mph down Emigration when (fill in the blank)Ē, because Big Brother knows the truth. In fact, my max speed is so slow on the road that I wonít even disclose it here.

I discovered Jim Beam Rye. In case youíre curious, my favorite whiskey is High West Son of Bourye, but thatís rarely a plausible option for me to buy. Next in line is Bulleit Rye, and then after that, itís all the same to me. As long as itís not Canadian. Anyhow, the discovery of cheap-ish rye means trouble. How is this related to bike racing? Itís not, but hopefully Iíll find a way for the two to mesh well.

ĎTis the season to zip up your jersey when youíre descending on road. A big Ďol horsie fly flew into my open collar and proceeded to neatly nibble around my collarbone, neck, and back while I made my best tweaker impression. 

While my roadie roommates were busy team-time-trialling back to the peloton after missing the start of the Bear Lake road race on Saturday, I was roaming around the Mt Nebo area on deserted, loamy trails. I WIN. Not that life is a competition or anythingÖ

Other than that, Iíve just been prepping for a little trip across the pond - i.e. renewing my passport in the nick of time (phew!) so I can race the Nove Mesto and Albstadt World Cups. First time racing my bike outside of the U.S. of A. so Iím pretty excited!

Areas of Strength
Los Angeles is <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/">Cheap Nike Free Run</a> a world-class city with a wonderful climate. <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/">Cheap Nike Air Max</a> Ummmm. Magic Johnson can get good Dodgers tickets. Management is dedicated to winning and will spend to extremes to reclaim the championship tradition. <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/nike-air-max-1-c-81.html">Nike Air Max 1</a> There is that. And the Lakers are a good place to be for a player who wants to market himself.
Needs Work
With so much of last season’s roster about to become free agents a <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/nike-air-max-2014-c-102.html">Air Max 2014</a> large part of the returnees dealing with injuries issues, it’s impossible to know what the Lakers will be. No coach also means no known system. In general, though, <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/nike-blazer-c-111.html">Nike Blazers For Sale</a> they basically need a starter and/or backup at most every position.
