The King Lives!

Labor Day weekend proved to be some great training and a few surprises. The weekend got off to a fast start with Transitions Multisport proprietor Tracy McKay in town for some recon training. Tracy has ridden in most of the Tour de Cullmans including the first one back in 1994, taking the KOM once.

I tried to hide behind my coffee cup when he knocked on my door. Tracy is sporting a little lighter chassis as he prepares for an Ironman next month. I will try to post a video of part of our ride. On our way thru Hanceville we had an interesting sighting.

Only in Cullman do you have an Elvis sighting

Later during the weekend we rode the Circle of Death loop. As we made it over the first climb and were descending down Skyball road we passed a horse and buggy, then we came up behind a group on horse back.

We had a good group that included Toby Rumbarger, Scott Montana, Casey Cherry and Bill St. John. The ride proved brutally hot with pleanty of suffering and some mechanicals thrown in for some added pleasure.

The highlight of the ride was when we returned to the St. John farm and Bill had prepared us homemade organic smoked sausage, and a couple of nice beers.
