Keep up the pace devil dale

Its friday and I'm really excited for the weekend as it holds much activity. Saturday morning I will be entering my first criterium race. Its basically a lap race with a set finish time and whoever finishes first wins. I have high expectations for Jeff and myself. As I said in my last post my Cannondale took a pretty serious beating from the accident. After some time and sweat shes officially back on the road. Here are some photos of the repairs along the way. So the legend of the devil dale begins. In spirit of the race tomorrow i'll leave you with a link to a song for the 2012 Olympics by muse. . "It's a race, and im gonna win whatever it takes. You won't pull ahead cause i'll keep up the pace"
